Snellville resident Paige Copeland has been promoted to managing partner of the LongHorn Steakhouse's Monroe location.
Copeland started her career with Darden Restaurants five years ago as a bartender, and has since taken on roles with increasing responsibility, most recently serving as the Training and Staffing Manager at the Monroe restaurant. As managing partner, she will oversee all aspects of the restaurant’s operations, including managing a team of approximately 55 team members.
A University of Georgia alumna, Copeland uses the skills and leadership qualities she acquired in college to continually further the success of the Monroe LongHorn. Her dedication to the LongHorn brand and her desire to provide guests with an excellent dining experience resulted in her promotion to Managing Partner. Copeland aims to set a positive, optimistic tone inside her restaurant, which enables her team members to serve guests with that amount of energy.
“Paige has consistently lived by LongHorn’s core values throughout her entire career,” said Paul Smith, Director of Operations for LongHorn. “She has been instrumental in the growth and success of the Monroe restaurant, and is committed to providing guests with exceptional service. Her work ethic and passion is contagious and I look forward to seeing her excel as Managing Partner.”
“I’m excited to be promoted to Managing Partner and to lead the Monroe restaurant,” said Copeland. “I’m lucky to be a part of a great, seasoned team. Together, we want to make each and every guest experience a memorable one so that guests look forward to coming back to LongHorn again and again.”
Additionally, Copeland and her team take pride in being involved in the Monroe community. Her team often donates food to local schools, and also participates in the Darden Harvest program by donating fresh, wholesome food to the Walton County Boys and Girls Club on a weekly basis.
The LongHorn Steakhouse in Monroe is located at 185 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
