About TGI Fridays

On March 15, 1965 casual dining got a serious kick start. That′s when a fun-loving New Yorker named Alan Stillman purchased a bar located on 1st Avenue and 63rd Street and named it T.G.I. Friday′s … Thank Goodness It's Friday′s. Okay, so his main goal was to meet stewardesses, but what he didn’t know at the time was that he was going to create what is now referred to as the casual dining industry.


From that moment on, lunch, dinner and drinks took on a whole new meaning. His restaurant quickly turned into the place to be for a great time on any day, but especially on Friday’s.
