ROSEMONT Market & Bakery
A family success story
Join the Association for Consulting Expertise as we learn about how Rosemont Market & Bakery became such a successful business.
The focus at Rosemont is to put together stores that supply fresh, locally- produced foods in season. Good food from people you know. Rosemont’s owners believe good food should be from people you know and should be nutritious, delicious and fun. They have built small stores in various communities, connecting customers to the community of local farmers/suppliers.
Rosemont Market & Bakery was born in 2005, from parents with long and varied experience in the world of food. Co-owners Scott Anderson and John Naylor worked together at the beloved Portland Greengrocer for ten years. Before that, Scott cooked at Back Bay Grill, after years cooking in France and Switzerland. John cut his teeth in the food world buying and cutting fish, eventually opening the Grouper Cafe, a restaurant he co-owned in Mt. Kisco, New York.
Rosemont began as one store on Brighton Avenue with five employees. Today it employs more than 100 people, with a 24/7 bakery and kitchen, five markets in neighborhoods in Portland, Falmouth, and Yarmouth, and a warehouse for distribution to markets and restaurants. Delivering to the Casco Bay islands, Rosemont also does event planning.
John Naylor, co-owner, Rosemont Market and Bakery, grew up in a family of thirteen kids in western Massachusetts. He graduated from Monument Mountain High School, and received a BS from SUNY Purchase. In 1986 he became a partner in a restaurant Grouper Cafe in Mt.Kisco NY and was there through 1994. 1994 to 2004 he managed Portland Green Grocer in Portland ME before opening Rosemont Market and Bakery at 559 Brighton Ave.
John has been married to Molly Thompson for 34 years and is the father of three children Currently he is the CEO of Rosemont Market and Bakery with six stores, bakery, kitchen, warehouse and over one hundred employees.
The Roundtable runs from about 9:45 to 10:30 and is optional. This is usually a skill-building session facilitated by a member(s).
One of the tools I use in my consulting practice is the Gallup CliftonStrengths Assessment. What is it? How does it compare to Myers-Briggs, Insight Discovery, DISC…other assessments? What value does the CliftonStrengths bring to individuals, teams and organizations? Why you might want to know about it……
Bring your questions to the roundtable and we’ll have a lively discussion……
