Bloomin’ Brands

In the late 1980s, four friends who were all veterans of the hospitality industry had the dream of opening their own restaurant. They wanted a place with a casual atmosphere and a strong focus on quality food and service.

To differentiate themselves from other concepts, they decided an Australian theme fit the relaxed, friendly and fun image they wanted. They opened their first Outback Steakhouse restaurant in 1988 in Tampa. Outback became known for serving a great steak at a reasonable price by people who genuinely cared about their guests.

Since the first Outback Steakhouse opened, our family has expanded to include Carrabba’s Italian GrillBonefish Grill, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. Together, these make up Bloomin’ Brands, Inc.

Today, Bloomin’ Brands is one of the world’s largest casual dining companies with approximately 94,000 employees and close to 1,500 restaurants throughout 48 states and internationally.
