Did you know that Carrabba’s Italian Grill was founded in Houston by Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola in December of 1986? Both have extensive restaurant experience and belong to one of Houston’s most successful restaurant families. Many of the recipes on the menu are those of Damian’s mother Grace and sister Rose. Damian has preserved the Italian authenticity of Carrabba’s food by traveling the world in search of unique Italian dishes and by taking numerous trips to his grandparents’ native Italy. As Carrabba’s grew in popularity, it caught the attention of Aussie-themed Outback Steakhouse, Inc. owners. A joint venture partnership was formed in January of 1993, in which10 locations were opened in Houston and in Florida. In January, 1995, Outback Steakhouse, Inc. acquired the rights to develop Carrabba’s nationwide. There are currently over 200 Carrabba’s Italian Grill locations.
