November 01, 2016 // Franchising.com // ORLANDO, Fla. - Romacorp, Inc., the parent company of Tony Roma’s, recently debuted its new global prototype Tony Roma’s restaurant on International Drive in Orlando, Fla. The brand and restaurant transformation has been met with enthusiastic feedback from local, national and international guests and influential industry media. In just a few weeks, the new restaurant has already seen incredible feature stories from leading publications including Scott Joseph Orlando, Restaurant News, Orlando Date Night Guide, The Primlani Kitchen, and Franchising.com.
“We are overwhelmed at the incredible initial response we are seeing from Tony Roma’s fans and industry media to our brand transformation,” said Stephen K. Judge, President and Chief Executive Officer for Romacorp, Inc. “Our Orlando prototype is setting the standard for all future Tony Roma’s restaurants, and we are thrilled to have had the chance to redefine the brand experience while putting fun back into our food and innovating around what we do best: ribs.”
As the world’s largest casual dining concept specializing in ribs, Tony Roma’s popularized baby back ribs nearly 45 years ago and brought the experience of American ribs and grilling to fans around the world. The new global prototype builds on this strong heritage and positions the brand for future domestic and international growth by transforming the restaurant environment, service approach, and food and beverage offerings to meet the demands of today’s consumer.
Key elements of the new restaurant that have excited fans and media include:
“We pushed the limits with the development of our new menu, experimenting with new types of ribs, cooking methods and sauces to create first of their kind craveable dishes that can’t be found anywhere else,” said Chef Bob Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Culinary. “When Baby Back Ribs were introduced to our menu in 1972, they were an instant hit. With this menu, we wanted to stick to those roots, adding new, truly innovative next generation Tony Roma’s ribs to our world-famous Baby Back Ribs, Beef Ribs and St. Louis Ribs.”
Let the celebration begin!
