Urban Greens Announces New General Manager!
Please join us in welcoming Rob Drake.

Rob brings 11 years of co-op experience, exhibiting a versatile skill set spanning Marketing, Purchasing, Pricing, Store Operations, and General Management.

His co-op journey commenced in 2012 as a Produce Clerk at Hungry Hollow Co-op in New York. More recently, and since 2019, he held the position of Pricing & Category Manager at BriarPatch Food Co-op in Grass Valley, CA.

Rob, his wife Frances, and their 1-year-old son Robbie, eagerly anticipate becoming a part of the Urban Greens community. Don’t hesitate to say hello when you visit the co-op and welcome them to Providence!

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Joe Doura, our interim General Manager, for his remarkable leadership. Since September 2022, Joe has steered Urban Greens in line with its mission, vision, and values, contributing significantly to the Co-op’s growth and success.
