TGI Friday’s is a casual dining restaurant from America. Its initial owner is Carlson Companies but it was later purchased by Sentinel Capital Partners and Tri-Artisan Capital Partners in 2014. Its name is actually from the expression, “Thank God It’s Friday!” They are mainly known for their brass railings, red-striped canopies, antique decors, and Tiffany lamps.
The first TGI Friday’s was opened in New York in 1965 by Alan Stillman. Growing up, Alan grew in a place where a lot of fashion models, secretaries, airline stewardesses, and young people reside in. During that time, he hoped that he would be able to meet women by opening a bar.
With $5,000 in his bank account and borrowing $5,000 from his mother, Alan bought the bar he occasionally goes to, The Good Tavern, located at the corner of 63rd Street and First Avenue. He named it TGI Friday’s after the famous expression, “Thank God It’s Friday” during his academic years at Bucknell University.
