The history of Darden Restaurants began in 1968 thanks to the initiative of William Darden. He founded a small restaurant called Red Lobster Inns in the city of Lakeland in Florida State. William Darden decided to open his first restaurant in Lakeland because he wanted to know the results of establishing a sea food restaurant in a non coastal area.

Fortunately, the idea had positive results and the restaurant was considered the best by several critics of the region. In 1970, William Darden decided to expand its businesses by constructing three new locations in different points of the State. In 1988, Red lobster became a powerful chain of seafood restaurants with 400 new locations throughout the United States.
