RED ROBIN OPENS FIRST LAS VEGAS LOCATION

 RED ROBIN OPENS FIRST LAS VEGAS LOCATION
 IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Robin International


Inc., the Irvine-based restaurant chain known for its fabled gourmet burgers served in an upbeat, spirited atmosphere, will open its first Las Vegas, location on Monday, Feb. 24, announced Madison Jobe, vice president franchise for the company.
 As the chain's 82nd restaurant, the 6,500-square-foot Red Robin Burger & Spirits Emporium will employ approximately 110 individuals at its location in the Charleston Commons Shopping Center located at 151 Nellis Blvd. According to Mario T. Mananghaya, area developer and franchisee, this is the first of several restaurants targeted for the Las Vegas area over the next few years.
 "Las Vegas is a perfect setting for the Red Robin concept," Mananghaya said. "This region needs restaurants that cater to entire families, while at the same time offer the kinds of food, beverages and excitement that are popular with younger crowds."
 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. "We believe Las Vegas will be a solid growth area for the company." Red Robin also plans to open its first location in Japan later this year.
 Like all Red Robin restaurants, the Las Vegas location 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.
 Red Robin boasts a full bar, generous booth and table seating for families and groups, 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 with that reflects society's changing tastes -- as is evident with its recent addition of lower-calorie entrees and delicious non-alcoholic beverages and noteworthy hot drinks.
 Red Robin International is the parent company to the 82 corporate and franchised Red Robin Burger & Spirits Emporium locations across 13 states and Canada. Red Robin International is owned by Skylark Company Ltd. of Japan, owner and operator of more than 1,000 restaurants worldwide.
