Paula DiLullo’s path to becoming the general manager of THE BEACH ROSE CAFE has been anything but straightfor- ward. Born and raised in NYC, Paula’s first job (at 14) was an overnight shift at a din- er. From there, she never stopped; earning a degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, working as a Marketing Director, an elopement and divorce, two stints in law school, and traveling the country are just a handful of her life experiences.
Paula moved back to RI in 2019, where she married her current husband and worked for a business litigation law firm. In- spiration struck her mother to open “a sea- side cafe offering simple food done right,” open all year featuring gluten-free fare and hipster-meets-grandma decor. Her mom wrote a note on the fridge reading simply, “Start a Family Business.” This manifested in less than a year when The Beach Rose Cafe opened last summer, following plen- ty of challenges and a soft-launch catering
event Paula was committed to coordinat- ing well into day three of being in labor with her son. “I do it because I love food, family, and hard work. I see small business- es as the pulsing life force of any communi- ty and I’m honored to participate.”
