World-Renowned and Legendary Tony Roma’s Restaurant Celebrates 50th Anniversary

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Romacorp, Inc., the parent company of Tony Roma's , the world's largest casual dining concept and widely–recognized restaurant brand that specializes in ribs, celebrates its 50th anniversary. On January 20, 1972, the company's founder Tony Roma opened his flagship restaurant, Tony Roma's, in North Miami, Florida. The restaurant quickly became one of the most popular eateries in Miami and established its niche in the market.

Over the years, loyal customers, families and friends continued to flock to the restaurant for its popular Baby Back Ribs. These special ribs emerged as a house specialty that are now enjoyed by guests across the globe. Now, after 50 years of successful growth and world–wide expansion, the company is celebrating being one of the most recognizable names in the restaurant industry.

"What better way to kick off 2022 than to be celebrating this monumental moment for our 50 years old brand," said Ramon Bourgeois, CEO (Acting) & COO of Romacorp, Inc. "As we look to the next 50 plus years, we are focused on growth, a fresh new concept, family–friendly dining experiences and continuing to serve up our saucy and flavorful ribs. We look forward to bringing families together around the table for many more years to come."

Tony Roma's is delighted and honored that dignitaries including U.S. Representative Val Demings have shared congratulatory wishes to the brand, which has been serving families and communities for five decades, locally in Florida and around the world.

Tony Roma's is a full–service, family–friendly dining destination with locations spanning 5 continents that serves up its World–Famous Baby Back Ribs and beloved menu classics, such as Kicking shrimp, Onion Loaf, Miami Burger, Sizzling Ribeye & Romaritas. Recently, the brand announced its new visionary leadership team, who are paving the way for the brand's next chapter of growth to expand the brand and Tony Roma's portfolio of dining experiences.

Later this year, the brand plans to launch a 3,000+ square foot dining prototype along with its 500 square foot fast–casual concept Bones & Burgers, which will cater to on–the–go guests, while still providing the same quality ingredients and fresh preparations in an authentic quick–service space.

The company plans to open 200 Tony Roma's locations over the next decade, primarily focusing on markets in the Middle East, Asia and the United States. The newest Tony Roma's locations are set to open in North Carolina this summer and Montana before the end of the year.

Expereo Launches SD-WAN Gateways

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Expereo, the leading global provider of managed Internet, SD–WAN, SASE, and Cloud Access solutions, announces the launch of SD–WAN Gateways. This new service boosts the SD–WAN performance for enterprises with a global footprint to support their multi–cloud strategies and increase application performance.

SD–WAN Gateways allow enterprises' global network to enhance the SD–WAN experience between data centers and hub sites both intra–regionally and globally, without sacrificing in–country performance. Enterprises can combine their existing SD–WAN solution with Expereo SD–WAN Gateways, to optimize the end–user application experience and reduce operational costs.

The new service leverages Expereo's managed SD–WAN service offerings complemented with proprietary smart BGP routing optimization technology, optimizing SaaS reach and access to public and private cloud, overcoming internet limitations.

"Businesses are entering a multi–cloud era in which the internet cannot always provide consistent quality for enabling their applications to perform seamlessly. One of the main SD–WAN Gateways benefits is that it combines a scalable network infrastructure with an enhanced WAN performance boosting your application performance. This results in a better user experience and higher productivity," comments Sander Barens, CPO of Expereo.

As Thomas Jongerius, SD–WAN/SASE Technical Lead at Expereo explains "Many enterprises face poor application experience due to unpredictable Internet performance resulting in high IT and support cost for businesses that operate globally. Our new SD–WAN Gateway service is all about getting the best application performance across the entirety of your network."

With SD–WAN Gateways, Expereo expands its managed services offering, taking a new step towards simplifying global cloud connectivity.
