Sizzler History

Sizzler was founded in 1958 as Del’s Sizzler Family Steak House. Del and Helen Johnson were the founders, and they opened the inaugural location in Culver City, California. Today, there are over 270 locations throughout the United States; namely in Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, Utah, and Oregon. The restaurant is best known for steak, seafood, and salad bar items.

Kerry Kramp talked to Upserve about the Sizzler brand, and what makes it different from its competitors. “One reason is the loyalty of the guest to the brand. I had never seen such passion, respect and love,” he said. “I wear the Sizzler logo just about every place that I go. I have it embroidered on about every shirt. I don’t have a tattoo, but I’m pretty close. But it’s because every place I go, there’s a Sizzler story.”

“It doesn’t matter whether I’m in Chicago, New York, Minnesota or California; people see the logo and they tell me a story about their first job, or that their parents used to bring them there, or that they remember the cheese toast,” Kramp added. “I think this legacy of a connection with the consumer, the consistency has been key. People have always known they could get a great meal at an affordable price.”
