Paul Doucette

General Manager

General Manager Paul Doucette is the ultimate host, both in his own home and especially here at the Sawmill Banquet and Catering Center.

With a mantra of “It’s not just business; it’s personal”, Paul firmly believes that “Service is not an industry; but rather it is a state of mind.”

It is with this mentality, that Paul’s passion for an exceptional dining experience radiates through every event we are a part of. Paul’s appreciation and respect for our guests as well as every person in our organization is perhaps only matched by his love for a glass of fabulous red wine.

Paul goes above & beyond to accommodate every guest, driven by the knowledge that there is nothing we can’t do or accomplish together as a team!

I just want to thank you all for your part in an excellent Grad Banquet. I would say this one was the smoothest yet. All the work in advance really paid off. Your organization provided superb service. Thanks and we will talk in advance of our next Grad date!

- Erin, Alzheimer Society
Just wanted to say thanks again and to send a shout out to you and your staff. When you saw that Stacey was on crutches, you immediately enlisted a young lady to follow me with a plate and fill it and deliver it to her. Totally appreciated and a nice gesture from a class operation!
- Doug G.
Our entire party had a wonderful time at Mother's Day! The servers were totally amazing and I don't think our water, juice or coffee ever got below half full. Our server was so friendly and extremely attentive to all of us. We're already looking forward to next year!
