In the late 1980s, four friends who were all veterans of the hospitality industry – Chris Sullivan, Robert Basham, Tim Gannon and Trudy Cooper – 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, they decided an Australian theme fit the relaxed, friendly and fun image they wanted for their new restaurant. With a “No Rules, Just Right” mentality that takes food very seriously, but without taking themselves too seriously, and operating under the premise that nothing stands in the way of pleasing the customer, they opened their first Outback Steakhouse restaurant in March 1988 in Tampa, Florida.
