Darden Restaurants

The Darden family of restaurants features some of the most recognizable and successful brands in full-service dining: Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze and Seasons 52. Our brands are built on decades of learning from our guests. Their culinary inspirations come from the fishing villages of Maine, the family tables of Italy and the American West – icons that reflect the rich diversity of those who visit our restaurants.

At Darden, we believe building and maintaining a strong, people-focused culture is the single most important reason we’ve become the world’s largest full-service restaurant operating company – a $7.2 billion enterprise.

Our goal is to make working at Darden more than just a job, but a place where people can realize their personal and professional dreams.

Developing our people is a cornerstone of our business model. We are constantly striving to foster a team of exceptional leaders at all levels of our company, so we can create a positive workplace for all of our employees. Our company’s vibrant culture impacts everything we do, from how we treat our employees and what we value, to how we recognize and reward a job well done
