Ruth Chris has numerous franchises. Their first franchise was opened in Baton Rouge. Many more since then. Plus 12 franchises 0verseas including Canada. 120 total in all restaurants. 19 Mitchell's Fish Markets, 2 Mitchell's steakhouses and one Cameron's Steakhouse.
To not be a chain would have to say three places less than 100 miles apart. Possibly with a small core of food items for all three, but each place Cook/Chef would have free range to change the rest of the menu to their desire and location. season, availability of fresh produce and such.
