Head-Heart-Hands: Part 1 of 5 “Why head-heart-hands no longer works”

Why does it seem like it is harder today to run a successful service business? Why does it seem like good employees are harder to manage and keep? Could it be that we are using 20th Century tactics in a 21st Century environment?

Helping Our Communities Blossom and Thrive

Our restaurants aren’t just in your neighborhood, we are a part of your neighborhood. We are part of active communities, including amazing people and organizations working hard to make our communities better. And we want to do our part.

Leading from the Heart- Blooming is Boomin’

It’s always been incredibly important to me to give back as much as I can as often as I can. As Thanksgiving approaches, I want to share how thankful I am for the amazing people I work with every day who believe in the same thing. I’m thankful for their commitment to serving the communities in which we have a presence, and for the positive impact they’ve made in the lives of so many others. Thank you for everything you do to leave the community better than you found it.

We Put People First

When thinking of what makes a restaurant successful, good food is the obvious first choice. But J&R Restaurant Group believes there is another factor that is just as important, if not more so…. taking care of people. It was the philosophy of the original founders of Outback and is one that Steve Grantham, Jr continues to believe in, and not just with words.
