Red Stripe Announces Management Team Promotions at East Greenwich and Providence Locations

EAST GREENWICH, PROVIDENCE, RI – Encore Hospitality Group, which owns and operates the Red Stripe and Mill’s Tavern restaurants, announces that Alex Broadbent has been promoted to Assistant General Manager of Red Stripe in East Greenwich, R.I., and Julie Shumate has been promoted to Restaurant Manager of Red Stripe in Providence, R.I.

In their new managerial capacities, Mr. Broadbent and Ms. Shumate are responsible for delivering exceptional service and hospitality to guests dining in their restaurants.  Both report to General Manager Stephane Ost who oversees the two locations.

Mr. Broadbent, a resident of Providence, joined Red Stripe last fall bringing a decade of wide-ranging restaurant experience. While attending college from 2009 to 2010, Mr. Broadbent worked as a server at the former Red Stripe location in Narragansett. After graduation, he moved to RI’s capital city where he worked locally in Providence and Boston for a casual dining restaurant chain.   Originally from Concord, N.H., he earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Rhode Island (2011).

Ms. Shumate, a resident of East Providence, grew up in Little Compton, R.I. Her hospitality career spans over 14 years. Prior to joining Red Stripe in 2013, she worked in service and assistant management for upscale restaurants in Newport and Portsmouth, R.I.  She is a graduate of the New England Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in interior design.

“The team at Red Stripe is passionate about taking casual dining to a whole new level.  We’re offering big portions of scratch-made food using high quality ingredients at an affordable price.  We want to be the neighborhood restaurant where guests can visit us two or three times a week because we’ve got a lot of great options on the menu, at prices that won’t keep them away,” said Mr. Broadbent.
