Second Houston location in the works
Even though Ron’s Hamburgers and Chili just opened its first Houston location in Tomball in September, owner David White said he is hoping to get the second location opened in early 2013.
“The plan was never to have just one Houston location,” he said. “We’re already looking at the Spring, Cypress and Magnolia areas.”
Founded in Tulsa, Okla., Ron’s is a family operated chain of restaurants that specializes in classic and specialty burgers, as well as award-winning chili. Each restaurant is managed by a family member or friend of Ron Baber, the founder.
White, who heads Houston operations, said he intends to eventually have 20–25 Houston area locations. Tomball has worked well as the launching point, he said.
“It’s a family oriented town, and they take care of their own around here,” he said.
Business has been picking up lately, White said. He estimates his restaurant serves around 500 people a day. He said he takes customer satisfaction seriously, and this will be the main focus moving forward.
“We’re in the ‘yes’ business here,” he said. “Any combo of anything you can think of—if we have [the ingrediants], we’ll make it.”
