Ruby Tuesday, Inc. announced plans to open five restaurants in the Greater Tulsa, Oklahoma area beginning in 2007. The franchise and development rights, acquired by RT’s of Oklahoma, LLC, call for the territory to be developed over four years. This marks the first franchise venture in Oklahoma for Ruby Tuesday.
Mike Treadwell, President of RT’s of Oklahoma and owner of Treadwell Enterprises, has over 25 years experience in the restaurant industry. Mike Treadwell and Treadwell Enterprises own and operate both quick service and casual full-service restaurants throughout the Midwest and southeastern United States and have been franchisees of brands including: Kentucky Fried Chicken, A&W, Pizza Hut, Long John Silver’s, Taco Bell, and Rib Crib.
“We are thrilled to be granted this opportunity to become a franchisee of such a successful national brand,” said Treadwell. “When we were looking to expand and diversify we researched many different brands but we kept coming back to Ruby Tuesday due to the systems that are already in place, the fanatical approach to offering their customers a wide variety of great food served consistently, a proven operational track record, and a true, sincere focus on guests.”
