T.G.I. Friday’s Brief Overview

Walking in to a T.G.I. Friday’s and smelling the aroma of the many cooked foods, and drinks you cannot help but to think to yourself “thank goodness its Fridays.” T.G.I Friday’s has been known by people of all ages to be a great place to get good food, great drinks, and an awesome atmosphere. It stands out among other dining places with its unique design featuring its famous red and white stripes and Tiffany lamps. The exterior doors have F shaped handles, providing you with an atmosphere that really makes you feel like it’s always Friday.

T.G.I Fridays was not always such a big franchise or chain of dining restaurants. The founder of T.G.I Friday’s actually founded the place in 1965 as an attempt to meet women. Queensboro Bridge, his neighborhood, was filled with stewardesses, and fashion models and there were not many places to socialize except for cocktail parties, and “guys” bars, where many women did not frequent. For $10000 Stillman purchased a bar called The Good Tavern on 63rd and First avenue and renamed it T.G.I Fridays after the popular expression “Thank God (or Goodness) it’s Fridays.” Soon enough Fridays became the local hangout for the young crowd in the neighborhood and it had a huge success. Today T.G.I Fridays is owned by Carlson Companies and currently has over 900 restaurants in over 60 countries. However not all of them, for instance Golden Corral restaurants are operated by another company.

T.G.I Friday’s has a large menu emphasizing on alcoholic beverages including its popular “Ultimate” drinks and various blended drinks. They also have many Appetizers, Steaks, Ribs, Seafood, Soups, Salads, Chicken, Pasta, Burgers, Sandwiches, and many Desserts.
