Outback Steakhouse Selects Charlotte To Launch New ‘To-Go’ Focused Restaurant Prototype


Charlotte has just been selected as a test market for Outback Steakhouse’s new prototype restaurant design. The new prototype will feature a smaller size, new technology and a revamped interior design to focus primarily on to-go, delivery, and Outback’s newly launched catering program.

The new high-tech 5,000 square foot free stand building is located at 2128 Freeman Park Drive in Charlotte’s Steele Creek area.

According to a press release from Outback, the new design features ‘edgy art pieces’, and expanded bar, and a redesigned kitchen layout to streamline online ordering.

“The smaller size also allows us to bring restaurants to areas where larger units may not have been possible,” said Brett Patterson, President of Outback Steakhouse.

In 2022, the restaurant plans on opening 3 prototype locations in Charlotte, Fort Worth, TX, and Polaris, OH. The company plans to build an additional 75 to 100 to-go-focused restaurants across the nation over the next couple years.
