Franklin Restaurant Group

Phil Audino developed a passion for food during his early years living in upstate New York. It was here that his family enjoyed a sustainable lifestyle, cultivating a large produce garden in their backyard, and making regular trips to local butchers for fresh, local meats. He spent the summers of his youth in Point Judith, RI, enjoying lobstering, clamming, and fishing.

When his family relocated to New Hampshire, he found work at several local eateries, including his parents’ restaurant, All Good Things. He attended Southern New Hampshire University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Finance. Upon graduation, Phil accepted a job as Rounds Chef at the Hotel Manisses on Block Island. There, he was able to remain loyal to his New England roots, and to foster his passion for fresh, local ingredients by developing relationships with local fishermen, and utilizing an on site organic produce garden.

Phil moved to Boston upon accepting a cooking position at the Franklin Café. His affinity for the Franklin food, coupled with his drive for excellence, quickly helped advance him to Chef de Cuisine. He was later offered a job as General Manager with the Franklin Group, which allowed him to combine his strong business skills, love of food, and talent in the kitchen…it was a natural fit.

Phil’s current position as CFO helps him oversee the expansion of the Franklin Restaurant Group and uphold our commitment to quality food at reasonable prices.
