Riot Hospitality Group has confirmed that it is looking into expanding its restaurant and hospitality brands across the nation. The Scottsdale, Arizona-based hospitality management company owns and manages five different restaurant-diner-bar concepts across the Arizona, Nashville, and Chicago area.

Taking pride in crafting a business model that is an intersection of restaurant, bar, and nightlife in downtown Scottsdale, Riot Hospitality Group (RHG) announced that it is looking to bring its unique and varied brand of dining and entertainment outside of Arizona to more states across the United States.

“It’s been an incredible past few years for RHG, from winning Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Hospitality Company in America to creating two new hospitality concepts we have managed to stay at the forefront of the ever-evolving hospitality industry,” Riot Hospitality Group CEO, Ryan Hibbert, shared.

“These new dining concepts ‘Farm & Craft’ & ‘Hand Cut Chophouse’ have been widely successful in our current markets, we look forward to bringing these experiences to more cities across the country.”

Riot Hospitality Group currently owns El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria, a taco joint that also offers Happy Hour, Tortas, and Beer-Garitas; Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row which serves a American Gastropub cuisine with a modern twist, while also offering 40 types of whiskey and nightly live music; burger and steakhouse, Hand Cut Chophouse; Farm & Craft which focuses on healthy and sustainable dishes; and its newest concept, Riot House — a sexy beach-themed nightclub which also serves dinner menu and brunch.

Riot Hospitality Group’s restaurants have won several coveted awards from distinguished bodies, and continue to be recognized by established organizations, including Rolling Stone Magazine, AZ Central, Eater Chicago, Eater Nashville, The Business Journal, Phoenix News Times & Arizona Foothills Magazine.

“We are dedicated to evolving the typical restaurant landscape into one which provides unique and meaningful experiences for each and every guest. From the décor to the delicious offerings, each concept evokes feelings of community guaranteed to create a one-of-a-kind experience for all who partake.” says Riot Hospitality Group’s CEO, Ryan Hibbert

Each restaurant offers a different dining experience that has been very successful in their home state, leading the company to open an El Hefe location in Chicago and a Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Nashville. Currently, there are 11 RHG restaurants in the country.

In 2017, the RHG restaurants have generated $42 million in gross sales. According to projections, the company is looking to hit the $75 million mark by the end of this year. This is a trend that the company has seen ever since it started. RHG has been experiencing a 95 to 98% growth year over year since it was established.

“We want to bring the experience across the country. In the same way, we want to continue helping our community, and this is more possible as we continue to expand.”
