RED ROBIN HATCHES IN OLYMPIA

 RED ROBIN HATCHES IN OLYMPIA
 IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- South Sound Red Robin


Inc., a franchisee of Red Robin International Inc., will hold a grand opening for its new Red Robin Burger & Spirits Emporium in Olympia, Wash., on Thursday, Aug. 6, announced Madison Jobe, vice president of franchise development of Red Robin.
 To train Red Robin's 140 team-members, the restaurant will invite local civic leaders and business leaders and employee family members to the restaurant for four days of "mock service," in which donations from guests and all proceeds from drink sales will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. According to Mark Eggen, general manager, the goal is to donate $10,000.
 "It has always been our philosophy to give to the community, and particularly the children, surrounding Red Robin restaurants," Eggen said. "Because the Make-A-Wish Foundation benefits critically ill children, we are honored to contribute to them."
 As the chain's 88th restaurant, the 8,500-square-foot Red Robin Burger & Spirits Emporium will be located just outside the Capital Mall at 600 Cooper Point Road.
 The newest eatery will hold true to the successful blend of ingredients -- great food, a seemingly endless list of creative alcoholic and non-alcoholic ("Mocktails") beverages, a festive environment and affordable prices -- that have helped make the international chain among America's favorite casual-dining restaurants.
 "The company's domestic expansion goals are currently pegged at 20 to 25 new units a year, with franchisees set to open at least 15 units," said Jobe.
 Like all Red Robin restaurants, a chain known for their legendary gourmet burgers served in an upbeat, spirited atmosphere, the Olympia site will feature a full menu selection for lunch and dinner. The menu is written in a fun and entertaining style with humorous copy that describes the menu's famous array of gourmet burgers -- 21 in all, signature salads and assortment of pastas and homemade desserts.
 The Olympia Red Robin boasts a full bar, generous booth, table and patio seating for approximately 280 guests and a separate arcade game room designed for children and the young at heart.
 Born in the late '60s as a hamburger and beer tavern frequented by Seattle's university crowd, Red Robin Burger & Spirits Emporiums have become synonymous with quality, value-priced casual dining. The company strives to maintain uncompromising quality, while continually offering a menu that reflects society's changing tastes -- as evidenced by its recent addition of lower calorie entrees and delicious non-alcoholic beverages.
 Red Robin International is the parent company to the 88 corporate and franchised Red Robin Burger & Spirits Emporiums locations across 13 states and Canada.
