Once considered a commoner's food, the people of the Mediterranean coast eventually made preparing delicious lobster into an art. Now, seafood-loving diners the world round enjoy local fresh lobster or visit restaurants who specialize in serving the freshest fish, lobster, scallops, shrimp, mussels, and clams available.
The first Red Lobster, in Lakeland, Florida, soon spawned many locations in the Southeastern United States. Families in the 1970s enjoyed casual dining and many had their first taste of calamari, snow crab, and key lime pie at a Red Lobster. They're also the inventors of popcorn shrimp. Today, you can feast on king crab, tender scallops, sweet tilapia, and harborside lobster, each prepared your favorite way.
In late 2012, Red Lobster saw a small yet alarming downturn in earnings, most likely owing to a floundering economy and a customer base who is looking for more affordable dining options. After listening to customer feedback about the current menu, Red Lobster decided to add new permanent menu items that cost under $15 each. Called "Maine Stays," they're still served with salad and unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits and include seafood as well as exciting entrees like the Wood-Grilled Chicken with Portobello Wine Sauce, Wood-Grilled Pork Chops, Blue Cheese Sirloin, Cobb Salad and Bar Harbor Salad.
Red Lobster and other restaurants, businesses, and services conduct customer surveys in order to maintain customer loyalty, learn about gaps in the market, and ensure that all franchise locations meet franchise standards.
