Food and Beverage Director, Sonya Dearborn
Sonya Dearborn owns and operates D’Ellies, a fast-casual eatery, during the winter in the mountains of western Maine. Her scratch-made menu emphasizes fresh-baked breads and pastries, locally-sourced ingredients and friendly customer service. After thirty years in the industry and five summers running a second D’Ellies on Pier One in Boothbay Harbor (and decorating wedding cakes!), Sonya joins SPI as Food and Beverage Manager.
Sonya has a mission: “delivering a consistent, high quality dining experience, with locally sourced ingredients.” Though the guest mix varies by the night, month and season, Sonya is hearing great reviews in conversations with locals and visitors, alike. “We build relationships, right on down the line, when we each do our job. When the whole staff bonds, we work as one big family, one team, to make customers happy.”
