Ruby Tuesday Restaurant Franchise Information:

Opportunity Doesn't Have To Knock If It Has The Keys.

Joining the Ruby Tuesday family as a franchisee will open the door to an exciting future - a future with one of the most popular and valuable casual dining concepts in the world today!

Since 1972, we have set the highest standards in culinary excellence and innovations, positioned ourselves as a leader in restaurant technologies, and achieved the highest level of operational expertise - and continue to do so today. We are now opening this opportunity to interested investors and potential franchisees in many areas of the world - both domestically and internationally.

Come Grow With Us!

Ruby Tuesday is one of three large public companies that dominate the grill-and-bar category of casual dining in the U.S., a segment that continues to show tremendous growth from consistent demand due to very favorable demographic trends, the capacity for new units, limited new competition, and same-store sales increases.

Our historical results have been achieved by using a blend of successful factors, including:
  • Providing casual food in a fun atmosphere for a reasonable price;
  • Being an operations-driven company, with hands-on leadership;
  • Opening successful units;
  • Providing real-time information and analysis to restaurant management teams;
  • Leveraging brand and support services through franchising;
  • Quickly responding to new opportunities; and
  • Increasing average unit volumes.
Our performance goals focus on measurements that we believe are key to our growth and progress, including, but not limited to, same-store sales, new unit openings, and pre-tax margins.

One Proven Formula!

As a Ruby Tuesday franchisee you will benefit from our guest-oriented culture and from the success of our proven systems. You will have access to these systems on which to build your business, as well as continual assistance from the Ruby Tuesday support departments.

At Ruby Tuesday, we strive to enhance our brand by focusing on our guests and the options they want in casual dining. When dining at Ruby Tuesday or taking it home with our To Go Curbside service, your options are endless.
