Scott Kammerer for the Win
Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, was named to the 2022 list of the most influential CEOs in the restaurant business by readers of Nation’s Restaurant News. He is one of 98 honorees on the list, which is released every two years.
“These honors—and they truly are honors—represent the hard work of our entire team,” said Kammerer, who started his culinary career in 1992 as a dishwasher. “From our directors of operations to our chefs to our servers, this dedicated family keeps SoDel Concepts running smoothly.”
Kammerer is as committed to his community as he is to the company. He founded SoDel Cares to support local nonprofits that help children, at-risk youths, and adults. To date, the nonprofit has contributed more than $740,000 to area charities. ▼

Southern Delaware Wine, Food & Music Festival Beneficiaries
The two charities that are beneficiaries of the seventh annual celebration on October 1 are Pathways to Success and The Children’s Beach House. The organizations will share in the net proceeds from this year’s festival, which has raised more than $165,000 for southern Delaware non-profits since 2015.
The 7th annual Southern Delaware Wine, Food & Music Festival moves to an exciting new venue this year: Hopkins Heartlands Covered Bridge in Lewes. The festival founder and organizer, Stacy LaMotta, states, “The festival is wildly successful, not only raising funds for deserving beneficiaries over the years but by providing a community celebration of all the wonderful things our coastal towns bring to the area; award winning food, excellent wines, craft beer and cocktails, and top musicians!”
