TGIF – Mentor, Ohio
As the original casual dining bar and grill, TGI Fridays offers authentic American food and legendary drinks, served with genuine personal service. Bringing people together to socialize and celebrate the freeing and liberating spirit of “Friday” was the concept’s founding premise, from which the brand promise “In Here, It’s Always Friday” was born. To share that social Fridays experience all over the world, TGI Fridays proudly serves guests with over 900 restaurants in more than 60 countries. That’s why TGI Fridays takes pride in its nearly 8,000 skilled and knowledgeable bartenders, all of whom for the past 20 years have competed annually for the title of the “World’s Greatest TGI Fridays Bartender.” In May of 2014, two private equity firms, Sentinel Capital Partners and TriArtisian Capital Partners decided to joint venture and purchase TGI Friday’s from Carlson, a global hospitality and travel company. The transaction was said to be valued at over $800 million.
