Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse

Added by Staff

0 reviews

The story starts in 1927. A woman named Ruth is born in New Orleans. The same day, Chris Steakhouse is opened in the same city. Fast forward to 1965, this LSU grad and single mother mortgages her house to buy the steakhouse that is now up for sale. That same year, the area is ravaged by Hurricane Betsy. With much of the city without power, Ruth knows all the food in her freezer will spoil. She cooks it and uses it in the relief efforts. In 1976, a kitchen fire destroys the building. Ruth is not to be defeated. She opens another restaurant right down the street calling it Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. That same year, a merchant approaches her wanting to open a franchise. Fast forward to today, Ruth’s Chris has locations all over the world. You can find her name in Hong Kong, Canada, and right here in Scottsdale.
