Shannon Colburn named SoDel director of operations


Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, recently announced the promotion of Shannon Colburn to the position of director of operations.

In her new role, Colburn oversees Bluecoast Seafood Grill + Raw Bar in Bethany Beach and Lupo Italian Kitchen in Rehoboth Beach.

At age 19, Colburn was one of the first employees hired at Bluecoast in Bethany, which is SoDel Concepts' flagship restaurant. She became the general manager of Bluecoast in Bethany Beach in 2014. Considered an expert in service and front-of-house operations, she's also worked in many of the other SoDel Concepts restaurants.

"Shannon is such a dedicated employee," Kammerer said. "She takes pride in her work and our company, and that shows. She's been a tremendous asset since the first day she started. I often joke that SoDel and Shannon have grown up together – they share all the same ideals and the same commitment to excellence."
