Ruth’s Chris Steak House is adding a second location in Greenville. Sizzling Steak Concepts, the nation’s largest franchisee of Ruth’s Chris Steak House, will be the sole food service provider for the new Embassy Suites Hotel to be located along River Street and the Reedy River within RiverPlace, the company announced Friday.
Ruth’s Chris current Greenville restaurant is on Congaree Road near Woodruff Road.
“We are thrilled to be working with the Windsor/Aughtry Company on this unprecedented project along the Reedy River,” said Mark Oswald, co-owner and franchisee of Ruth’s Chris Steak House. “This will be the second time Sizzling Steak Concepts has partnered with Windsor/Aughtry on a hospitality project. We have faith in downtown Greenville, in Windsor/Aughtry and their proven success.”
In November, Windsor/Aughtry announced the development of the 156-suite Embassy Suites Hotel. The Ruth’s Chris Steak House will be on the lobby level, overlooking the river. A rooftop venue at the hotel will offer a lighter-fare menu and views of the river and Peace Center Amphitheater to the east, and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the north.
“We worked with Sizzling Steak Concepts on the Columbia Hilton City Center project in Columbia and it is an extraordinary partnership,” said Paul C. “Bo” Aughtry III, principal of Windsor/Aughtry. “That project includes a Ruth’s Chris Steak House and the combination has proven to be popular with our guests. It gives us great confidence in knowing they will treat their Greenville guests just as we treat our guests – with very special attention.”
