Carrabba’s Italian Grill restaurant was founded in the year of 1986 by Damian Mandola and his nephew. These two opened the first restaurant on Kirby Drive in Houston, Texas. Pretty soon the second location was opened at the intersection of Voss Road and Woodway.
To honor his sister Rose, Damian renamed the restaurant “Rossie Carrabba’s” after a significant expansion of the company.
In 1993, another ten Carrabba’s restaurants were opened in Florida and Huston, under a joint venture with Outback Steakhouse, Inc. OSI bought the rights to expand the Carrabba’s chain all over the United States two years later, in 1995.
The first airport location was opened in 2008 in Tampa International Airport, after the Outback Steakhouse, Inc made a partnership with HMSHost.
In 2003 there were more Carrabba’s restaurants in Florida than in any other state in America.
