TV CHEF GORDON RAMSAY DITCHES CALIFORNIA, MOVES RESTAURANT HQ TO TEXAS: REPORT.
Add celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay to the list of people and businesses trading California for Texas.
Ramsay has relocated his North American restaurant headquarters to Las Colinas, Texas, from the West Coast, according to a report.
The 55-year-old Scottish-born “Hell’s Kitchen” host has hired a team of businesspeople and chefs to expand his restaurant empire across North America, according to the Dallas Morning News.
The team has plans to open 18 restaurants in cities like Boston, Miami and Chicago.
Over the next five years, CEO Norman Abdallah says he’ll oversee the debut of 75 company-owned restaurants.
Some of the expansion will be in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
He may have second thoughts about Boston, but especially about Chicago.
Unfortunately my girlfriend is going to hold me to a promise to take her to a Gordon Ramsey restaurant someday, and someday is getting close now that he’s opening in Boston.
I really, really, really don’t want to drive into Boston at night, park in a garage and walk those streets again. Really.
Can I suggest a road trip? I see that there’s one in Orlando.
