August 25, 2018

Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, was recently voted Best Businessman in Sussex County by the readers of Coastal Style magazine. This is the fourth year he has received the award. SoDel Concepts owns 10 restaurants in coastal Sussex County, as well as Plate Catering.

Kammerer has received many state and regional recognitions, including the Delaware Restaurant Association’s 2016 Cornerstone Award and the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business Award.

“It is always an honor to be recognized,” he said. “But no one does it alone. SoDel Concepts has a team of dedicated and highly skilled people, some of whom have been with us for a decade or more. They share a common vision when it comes to giving guests the best possible experience and helping our communities.”

In the past, SoDel Cares, the company’s philanthropic arm, has received a Coastal Style award for contributions to the community.

Kammerer, a native of New Jersey, started out in the Delaware hospitality industry in 1992 as a dishwasher in Rehoboth Beach. By 1996, he was the general manager of a popular seafood restaurant. He is now one of the most successful restaurant developers in the history of Delaware.

He will be the keynote speaker Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce’s 20th Anniversary Superstars in Business Awards luncheon.

Kammerer and his wife Lisa live in Rehoboth. They have three sons.
