Red Lobster

Red Lobster is a chain of 700+ seafood restaurants. The first restaurant was built in 1968 by Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby in Lakeland, Florida.

The chain grew to 5 restaurants in 1970 when it was acquired by General Mills and rolled out nationally. General Mills created other restaurants including The Olive Garden.

In 1986: General Mills acquired the Ponderosa Steakhouse locations in Canada and turned them into Red Lobsters.

In 1995, General Mills spun off its restaurant division. The new company took on the name Darden Restaurant Group. The group expanded by creating new restaurant concepts and acquisitions.

In 2013 Darden Restaurant Group sold Red Lobser to Golden Gate Capital. The picture shows the Red Lobster in Salt Lake City.
