The fish-merchant-turned-restaurateur started with a bare-bones operation that didn't even use light fixtures.

Ruth’s Chris could buy more restaurants as it gets back to growth

The steakhouse chain is ramping up development with plans to open five to seven new locations a year.

The chain is focusing on building traffic and staff while doing its best to manage rising costs.

The stores in Georgia and South Carolina were owned by longtime operator Texas Roadhouse Management.

The chain will make multiple small adjustments in coming quarters to see how customers react.

The chain was hit harder than most by the COVID-19 variant in December and January, when an “unprecedented” number of its workers got sick.

Off-premise is booming at the 219-unit chain, but executives want to see it keep growing before airing major development plans.

Ledwith will step down in May after 18 years with the chain. He'll be replaced by SVP of Operations Christopher Pinsak.

Strong sales paired with higher prices have the chain set up for a big year, executives said.

Half of the chain’s restaurants have returned to around-the-clock service, and those stores are performing well. But it’s unclear when the rest will get there.
