Red Lobster history dates back to March 1968 when it was founded by entrepreneurs Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby. Initially, it was billed as a “Harbor for Seafood Lovers”. Their first restaurant in Lakeland, Florida, was shortly followed by many others throughout the southeast. By 1970 there were five units and was acquired by General Mills, who made the chain expand rapidly in the 1980s.
Today, the chain is owned and operated by Darden Restaurants, Inc., and headquartered in Orlando, Florida. It also operates in Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Japan. There are about 705 locations where this American casual dining restaurant can be found.
“We know the secret to great seafood is quality and freshness” – This is the claim they make at Red Lobster. And they take the concept of freshness to domains other than food: they strive to keep themselves fresh in their dedication, holding themselves to the highest standards for a service, quality and a welcoming atmosphere, and also on correctness towards their employees; keep themselves fresh in their commitment, so that every time a customer pays a visit to one of their restaurants, they find an uncommon commitment to deliver the best of the sea, full with fresh energy and ideas so that people will have the desire to come again and again; freshness in their knowledge, as their claim is that no one knows seafood better than they do.
They have employees stationed in all corners of the world who inspect their seafood as soon as it comes out of the water, in order to ensure that they meet the standards that are second to none.
