About Red Lobster

Red Lobster is a multinational chain of restaurants based in Orlando, Florida. The company operates sit-down restaurant locations that primarily serve seafood, though the menu is supplemented with other main dishes, sides, and desserts. Red Lobster has restaurants in countries all over the world, including Canada, Qatar, and Japan.

Products & Services

Red Lobster locations serve a range of seafood products, including shrimp, crab, fish, and, lobster. The company also markets soups, salads, and a variety of beef and poultry dishes. Red Lobster also operates a portion of its website as a source for food and drink recipes. Some Red Lobster restaurants are designed with a “Bar Harbor” decoration scheme, which is modeled after New England architectural styles.


The company was founded in 1968 by Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby. The founders opened their first Red Lobster restaurant in Lakeland, Florida to test the model’s success in a non-coastal area. In 1970, the company added four locations shortly before selling Red Lobster to General Mills. Darden, who had stayed with the company and eventually became vice president of General Mills, expanded the Red Lobster chain and founded the Olive Garden brand. General Mills decided to create a separate company, known as Darden Restaurants, Inc., to operate its restaurant chains. Darden Restaurants has since remained a public entity and opened more Red Lobsters in international locations.

Job Opportunities

Red Lobster is a wholly owned subsidiary of Darden Restaurants. The company offers a variety of careers, including hourly restaurant jobs and management positions.
