Death: Linda Bean Obituary -The American businesswoman and philanthropist Linda Lorraine Bean has Passed away. She was born on April 28, 1941 in the United States. In both 1988 and 1992, Bean attempted to run for a seat in the United States Congress as a candidate for the Republican Party. However, he was unsuccessful. An heiress to the L.L. Bean firm, she is the granddaughter of Leon Leonwood Bean and a member of the founding family. Bean purchased a dock in Port Clyde in 2007, which was the beginning of her own lobster business that she owned and operated. In later years, she went on to acquire additional properties in Tenants Harbor and on the island of Vinalhaven.

Her company eventually resulted in the production of more than nine million pounds of lobster per year. Bean took a portion of her retirement in 2016, and she also established an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) in which she transferred the majority ownership of her lobster businesses to her general manager and her employees. Bean took the initiative to achieve sustainability certification for the entire Maine coast trap lobster fishery by meeting the standards of the Marine Stewardship Council. This was announced by the organization’s founder, Rupert Howes, and by Maine Governor Paul LePage on March 10, 2013, at the International Boston Seafood Show.

There has been a lot of controversy over Bean’s involvement in the lobster industry. There are currently more than half of Maine’s lobsters that are shipped to Canada for processing and sale by other enterprises to the United States and other countries. She has advocated for greater lobster processing to take place in Maine rather than in Canada. Furthermore, an undercover video that was supposedly made by PETA at one of the lobster processing companies in Maine showed workers pulling limbs off of live lobsters, which raised concerns about the cruelty that is being committed toward animals. According to a statement made by a lawyer for Bean to the Portland Press Herald, “Our practices do not violate Maine’s laws on cruelty to animals because lobsters do not come within the covered definition.

Bean has interests in a number of different businesses, including the construction industry, the hospitality industry, and the lobster industry. She is the owner of extensive tracts of timber in western Maine, which include sugarbushes near Weld and Wyman, Maine, which produce maple syrup. Under the brand name venture known as “Linda Bean’s Perfect Maine,” she owns a number of enterprises in the midcoast region of Maine, including two general stores in St. George. She also leases out holiday homes and wedding settings. Linda Bean’s Maine Wyeth Gallery was established in Port Clyde in the year 2015, and she personally penned the Wyeths by Water art trips that were conducted aboard her converted lobster boat, which she called “Linderin Losh.”

She is the proprietor of the Seaside Inn and Barn Cafe in Port Clyde, as well as the Dip Net wharf restaurant and the adjoining Ocean House and Dining Room historical establishment. The Perfect Maine lobster roll, which she started selling in Freeport, Maine, in 2008 based on her own recipe, has been sold more than two million times since she first presented it to the public. Her restaurants contain camp dishes that were passed down from her grandpa. The Linda Bean’s Maine Lobster Cafe at Portland International Airport is equipped with a complete lounge bar for passengers’ convenience.

Products such as lobster bisque, lobster ravioli, coffee, sea salt, and barbecue sauce are among the items that can be purchased from her restaurant and online company. Her greatest restaurant in Maine is called Linda Bean’s Maine Kitchen & Topside Tavern, and it is situated directly across from the flagship store of L.L. Bean in Freeport, Maine. The location of the restaurant was originally a tavern that was established there in the year 1790. Bean made the acquisition of the original tavern location on September 27, 2010, from a retired fellow Freeport local named George Denney. Denney began his career in her grandfather’s store and then went on to purchase a little-known Freeport shoe manufacturer brand called Cole Haan, which he later sold to Nike.
