Business model[edit]

Since first opening in 1987, BR Guest President and Founder Stephen Hanson and his staff have emphasized hospitality, style, and accessible cuisine.[according to whom?] In 2007, Hanson inked a partnership deal with Barry Sternlicht, CEO of Starwood Capital Group, as part of its Starwood Opportunity Fund 7. The transaction valued BR Guest at "between $150 million and $200 million." (USD)

In August 2010 BR Guest welcomed Alexandre Gaudelet to the team as its new Chief Operating Officer.

In November 2016, BR Guest was sold to Landry's, Inc., the operator of many casinos and restaurants including Bubba Gump Shrimp, the Rainforest Cafe, and Golden Nugget Casino.
