Ruth Fertel opened the first Ruth’s Chris Steak House in 1965 in New Orleans. What began as a local success – popular among the city’s politicos, power brokers, professional athletes and celebrities – grew into an international phenomenon. Forty years and over 100 restaurants across the country and around the world later, Ruth’s Chris has both defined what great steak is and redefined the steak house experience. Today, Ruth’s Chris is the steakhouse against which others are judged. If it inspires and excites you to help build a growing, profitable restaurant business in which the highest standards of quality, value and hospitality are expressed; where respect, integrity and pride are a way of life; then we would love to hear from you and discuss how you might fit into our extraordinary culture at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. We are constantly seeking qualified team members for our Restaurant Management positions and Restaurant Hourly positions.
At Ruth’s Chris, we not only take care of our guests – we like to take care of our employees, too. Which is why we offer a benefits package that sets Ruth’s Chris apart from other restaurants.
When Ruth Fertel first purchased Chris Steak House in 1965, it was just a year after congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, giving protection to women and minorities in the workplace, and decades before diversity became a business strategy. Ruth understood the value of each and every employee’s contribution to her success, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion or creed. Ruth developed business relationships with people who could get the job done, franchisees and vendors alike. Ruth faced challenges presented by her own position as a female pioneer in the restaurant industry. Today, Ruth’s Chris continues to value the unique differences of each and every team member, guest, franchisee and vendor.
