Roy’s Restaurant was founded by James Beard Foundation Award winner Roy Yamaguchi in 1988 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The company operates a chain of restaurants which feature a fusion of Hawaiian, French, and Japanese foods.
Yamaguchi says that his love of different foods originates from his Hawaiian born father and Japanese mother. After opening his first location in Honolulu, Yamaguchi expanded his chain to 29 locations in the US and internationally.
In 2000, Yamaguchi sold his interest in all mainland and international locations to Bloomin’ Brands for $10 million. Yamaguchi still owns the 6 locations on the Hawaiian islands. Bloomin Brands sold the chain to United Ohana, LLC in late 2014.
This listing is for the mainland locations owned by United Ohana, which maintains headquarters in Tampa, Florida.
