Long John Silver’s, the nation’s largest quick-serve seafood restaurant, is making waves in 2019 while celebrating its golden anniversary with an enthusiastic FISH YEAH! From the beginning, Long John Silver’s treated every moment as a chance to celebrate the food we like most out of the place we love most – the deep blue sea. Now, fifty years into a journey that’s spanned sea to shining sea, Long John Silvers Catering Menu continues to be driven by that vision as it plots a course for another 50 years of adventure.
The initial Long John Silver’s opened in 1969 after an enterprising businessman and restaurateur named Jim Patterson experienced a totally exceptional Fish and Chips meal while vacationing on the coast. “The idea of Long John Silver’s was simple,” Patterson said. “Take the unique seafood experience from the coast and make it offered to all. It’s what drives us to supply every guest who sails around moments of sea-prise and delight, with ring-the-bell service and real fish sourced responsibly from real places.”
Staying true to that particular vision, Long John Silver’s recently added grilled salmon – wild-caught within the north Pacific – and grilled shrimp to its menu of classic signature battered favorites. This was an important launch for the brand that included rolling out new grill equipment to restaurants across the fleet earlier this year. With the grilled seafood menu, guests can now enjoy grilled meals and variety platters or go on bold flavor adventures with baja, sweet chili, or southwest tacos and rice bowls which are sure to make taste buds scream Fish Yeah!
As well as making waves with its new grilled menu, Long John Silver’s has also been making music and cranking out “fintastic” hits featuring its own record label, Fish! Yeah Records. The seaworthy success in the record label this spring inspired a summer follow-up album celebrating Fishmas – the summer months season of seafood. The company has been spreading Fishmas cheer with seafaring swagger and swag in an effort to sea-prise and delight its social media followers. These whimsical innovations have swept through the company’s branding. Seen online, with their new website as well as in person making use of their redesigned packaging – both aimed to amplify the entire guest experience.
“We want to thank each of the people who’ve joined us on this 50-year journey,” said Stephanie Mattingly, CMO of Long John Silver’s. “From your partnership of our franchisees and our restaurant crews towards the guests they welcome aboard every day inside our restaurants; the loyalty and continued support Long John Silver receives is the thing that inspires us to seas every moment!”
