Our History.

Serving High-Quality Deliciousness since the 1940's

Red Robin started as Sam’s Tavern in the college party town of Seattle in the 1940s. Sam was part of a quartet, and he loved singing "When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob Bobbin’ Along)" and ended up using that to rename the popular burger joint to Sam’s Red Robin. In 1969 Sam’s name was dropped, and the menu got beefed up to make burgers like no one had seen before. Fans raveled from all over the states just to taste these Gourmet Burgers, and eventually, people started opening up Red Robins across the country.

By 1983, there was a total of 22 Red Robin locations and Red, the Red Robin mascot, was created. Just three years later, Red Robin bloomed across the U.S. and Canada with over 175 locations serving an expanded menu that everyone craved. In 2019, we celebrated 50 years of serving Gourmet Burgers and Brews with our passion for bringing people together and having fun. The future will only get better for Red Robin due to our continuous desire to innovate and have fun while serving the highest quality ingredients to the best customers.

Just like a gourmet burger needs quality ingredients, a dependable company needs a stellar leadership team. We feel the leadership team of Red Robin Gourmet Burgers exemplifies our B.U.R.G.E.R. values and core strategy in creating a fun, profitable place that everyone can enjoy.
