In 1996 a group of entrepreneurs and restaurateurs put together their combined total of over sixty years of successful restaurant and real estate experience to develop a concept that later became Colton's Steak House & Grill. Their vision was to open a steak house anyone could walk into and feel at home, have fun, relax, eat delicious food, and enjoy excellent service in an atmosphere with the feel of the "American West."
Once the concept was completed, they formed what would eventually become Colton'sÂ® Restaurant Group Inc. (CRG), the franchisor of the concept. In August 1996, the first location opened its doors in Conway, Arkansas.
It wasn't long before the second restaurant opened in Searcy, AR. As the sixth Colton's opened, a new corporate operating partner came on the scene: Hand Cut Steaks, Inc. (HCS). During HCS's primary expansion period, the President, CEO and cofounder of CRG was President, CEO and cofounder of HCS. HCS currently operates seven of the twenty-four Colton's that are open or under construction.
Today, all Colton'sÂ® Steak House & Grill restaurants operate as franchises, with locations in Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky. The current owners of CRG also own an interest in over half of the Colton's now in operation.
With the hard work, determination and skilled management teams of CRG and all the franchise groups, they have created the successful restaurant theme they envisioned from the start. With a broad menu offering exceptional food, service and a casual Western atmosphere, it looks like the group accomplished their goal.
