What is employee ownership?

Once you’ve become a part of our team, you begin earning shares in our company. That means that we invest real dollars on your behalf, and ultimately the company’s profits are divided among our employees. Year in and year out, the better our restaurants do, the more return you see for your own hard work.

Having come up through the kitchens of Newport Restaurant Group, my career has been guided by many talented individuals who have preached hard work, creativity and the dedication to the guest – all while nurturing a familial atmosphere. I’m excited that I now have the opportunity to mentor the next wave of culinary talent for NRG.
