McCormick & Schmick’s: Seafood Restaurant – www.mccormickandschmicks.com/Seattle/
Bill McCormick and Doug Schmick teamed up in the 1970s to establish more than 80 restaurants and catering operations throughout the country – an extraordinary feat in a business with the highest attrition rate of any in the United States. The history of McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants began with the purchase of Jake’s Famous Crawfish Restaurant located in Portland, Oregon.Several years later, the original McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant opened, and since then, has grown to become the nation’s premier family of seafood restaurants.
In 2004, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants, Inc. became a public company, trading on the NASDAQ as MSSR. In early 2007 McCormick & Schmick’s purchased five Boathouse Restaurant locations in Vancouver, BC. Since then, another has opened. In 2012, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants became a part of the Landry’s, Inc. family, joining more than 300 locations nationwide.While the number of restaurants has grown, the original vision remains in providing the freshest seafood, at a value, in a comfortable setting while providing extraordinary service. Making it work are the company’s leaders and more than 7,000 employees. The continued emphasis on open imagination and a respect for tradition is what makes McCormick & Schmick’s the classic and successful business. Our store was the Training store for all McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants that opened and we took great pride in keeping the long tradition of excellence up.
