Two founders of Outback Steakhouse have latched on to their next big idea for restaurants and purchased the franchise rights to build Glory Days Grill locations throughout Florida.

Bob Basham and Chris Sullivan who helped found Outback, are part of the local franchise ownership group, along with current business partner Nick Reader.

Glory Days Grill is a sports-themed restaurant with 18 corporate locations in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, plus two franchised restaurants in Richmond, Va.

The first nearby location will be at a former Lee Roy Selmon's restaurant at 17508 Dona Michelle Drive, near the intersection of Bruce B. Downs Boulevard and I-75.

Besides Glory Days, the partners own and operate the restaurant brands PDQ, Carmel Café & Wine Bar and Lee Roy Selmon's.
