The first “Tony Roma’s” was opened in North Miami, Florida on January 20, 1972. The family restaurant featured casual décor, comfortable ambience and the feel of a neighbourhood bar.
The menu was simple and consisted of great tasting food, reasonable prices, late evening service and nightly live entertainment. Baby Back Ribs emerged as the house specialty with people traveling miles to sample the signature product. Tony Roma’s Place soon became one of Miami’s most popular and successful restaurants and firmly established its niche in the marketplace.
The second restaurant was opened in Broward County, Florida in 1976 and in December of that year the first West Coast restaurant opened in Beverly Hills. The opening was in true Hollywood tradition with numerous celebrities and sports figures in attendance.
Over the next five years new Tony Roma’s were opened in Florida, California, Hawaii, Nevada, New York, Tennessee and Texas. The first international Tony Roma’s, a Franchise, was also opened in Japan on August 9, 1979.
Expansion has been strong in Latin America and the Caribbean as well as continued growth in Asia, Europe, Canada and the United States. Tony Roma’s today has Company and Franchise operations throughout the world.
