The company is known for operating full-service concepts across the fine and casual-dining spectrum.
Tilman Fertitta’s move into restaurants began in 1980, when he was a partner in the first Landry’s Seafood Restaurant in Katy, Texas. A year later he partnered to open Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks. In 1986, he took control of both and Landry’s Inc. began to grow. In 1993, Fertitta took the company public with 11 restaurants, and he began to acquire brands, vastly growing the company’s portfolio over the next 25 years to include hotels and casinos, and later the sports team the Houston Rockets. Fertitta took the company private again in 2010 in a $1.4 billion leveraged buyout. In 2021, Fertitta’s Landcadia Holdings was tied to a series of publicly traded blank-check companies created for special purpose acquisitions.
