We’re thrilled to be able to work with someone as knowledgeable about the restaurant industry as Sir Francis Mackay and his team.

Romacorp, Inc., parent company of Tony Roma’s and TR Fire Grill, announces an agreement to build three new restaurants in the United Kingdom. Romacorp’s partner is Sir Francis Mackay, a leader in the hospitality industry in the United Kingdom.

“We’re thrilled to be able to work with someone as knowledgeable about the restaurant industry as Sir Francis Mackay and his team”, said Stephen Judge, President and Chief Executive Officer of Romacorp, Inc. “Sir Francis has been leading innovative food service companies for decades, and we’re confident his strong experience in the U.K. market will help strengthen our international presence and attract new fans to the Romacorp brands.”

Sir Francis Mackay’s Fulton’s Restaurant Division, a wholly owned subsidiary of Graysons Hospitality Limited, operates the existing Tony Roma’s in Glasgow, Scotland. Under this new agreement, the group will open new Tony Roma’s and TR Fire Grill restaurants as they expand their U.K. presence with the Romacorp brands.

TR Fire Grill is Romacorp’s newest concept, a chef-inspired American bistro with a simple passion for crafting fresh, artisanal dishes and culinary experiences that ignite your taste buds and surprise and delight you palate. This agreement marks the second international development agreement for Romacorp’s new TR Fire Grill. TR Fire Grill launched on November 2, 2015 in Winter Park, Florida, and has additional locations planned for Hawaii, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom.

“This new partnership provides a truly exciting opportunity to bring alive the Tony Roma’s brand across the UK, allowing us develop both Tony Roma’s and TR Fire Grill restaurants”, said Dean Sexton, Tony Roma’s UK Managing Director. “The experience and capability of our fantastic team in Glasgow, Scotland will provide a great springboard for opening additional restaurants in new and iconic locations.”
