The Founders

The founders who made it a flawless reality

Four friends in the 1980s came together with the dream of opening their own restaurant - a place casual in atmosphere, with quality food and service at the top of the list. Chris Sullivan, Robert Basham, Tim Gannon, and Trudy Cooper, all sterling veterans of the hospitality industry.

To ensure their haven would stand out from the pack, they chose an Australian theme to fit the relaxed but lively mood of their ideal restaurant. The very first Outback Steakhouse opened in March '88 in Tampa. They've stood by their "No Rules, Just Right" mentality: Outback Steakhouse's team takes food seriously, without forgetting any of the fun, knowing that nothing stands in the way of making you happy.
