Justin Shoener

Financial Operations

As a financial operations leader for the Indigo Road family of restaurants, Justin Shoener utilizes his more than 25-year hospitality career with his strength of fiscal review and insight. Like IRHG founder, Steve Palmer, Shoener’s hospitality career began as a dishwasher and touched upon all integral roles within the restaurant, from server to general manager, allowing him an expansive understanding of the granular specifics of the operations.

As a senior leader responsible for financial operations, Shoener works with restaurants on the back-end financials regarding cost of goods, P&L reviews, and efficient reporting. It’s not all about the numbers for him, however, as he thrives on mentoring employees to develop and grow in their hospitality careers as he experienced firsthand.

Previously a general manager for the Charlotte locations of O-Ku and Oak Steakhouse, Shoener moved to the Carolinas from Orlando, Florida to join the Indigo Road Hospitality Group. With many years of experience in the industry, Shoener exemplified southern hospitality ensuring guests a memorable dining experience. His passion for customer service is driven by a desire to help others create “wow moments.” Prior to moving to Charlotte, Justin spent 11 years as the director of operations for a restaurant group in Orlando. During his time with the group, he opened several restaurants and oversaw a variety of concepts. When not in the restaurants, Justin enjoys making his own memories with his wife and two kids. A native of Madison, Wisconsin, he is a huge Green Bay Packers fan and enjoys ice hockey.
