Outback Steakhouse Careers & Info

Current CEO: William Allen III

Status: Active

The Outback Steakhouse was founded in Tampa, Florida, by Bob Basham, Trudy Cooper, Chris T. Sullivan and Tim Gannon in 1987. Early on, the partners agreed that their restaurant would offer a comfortable atmosphere with great service and great food at a great price.

All of them had worked in the restaurant business. From that experience they knew that people went out to eat prime rib and beef, so they opened a steak restaurant that served modestly priced, high-quality food in a casual atmosphere. In 1986, the Crocodile Dundee movie had been released and was an instant hit. The Australian Outback was similar to the American West. The memorable identity became the new restaurant’s name.

As a result of their combined experience in the restaurant business, the partners were aware of managing problems and decentralized the management in their establishments. Certain standards must be met, but otherwise they let local managers run the restaurants as they see fit.

Outback recognizes that people of all races, colors, ages, sex, religions, marital status, national origins and disabilities have talents and other qualities. This diversity contributes to the success of the restaurant’s outreach program as the employees make connections with members of social associations, schools, civic groups and other non-profit organizations. This is critical to the future growth and success of the restaurant in the community.
