The Village at Odenton Station was selected for the new Ruth’s Chris Steak House location for its opportunity to capture a fast-growing, professional population, with strong income levels due to ongoing growth at Ft. Meade, the National Security Agency and National Business Park, and the expansion of health-related services. Ruth’s Chris Steak House will be situated to welcome over 2,600 daily MARC commuters for a cocktail and a bite to eat from the Sizzle, Swizzle and Swirl lighter fare menu in the bar, dining room, or outdoor on the patio, where they can relax after work.
“The fine dining experience that Ruth’s Chris offers is a perfect addition to The Village at Odenton Station and I am proud to be one the many partners who worked hard to make this happen,” said Mike Gill, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development. “The entire area in and around Ft. Meade and the National Security Agency is expanding rapidly and opening a Ruth’s Chris here will capture a growing need for retail and dining options.”
“I first presented this site to Ruth’s Hospitality Group more than five years ago,” said Trish Palumbo, Director of Leasing for Klein Enterprises. “They sent it to Steve, who graciously accepted my relentless emails, visits, market studies, packages and tour requests. The folks from Anne Arundel County and state government, Anne Arundel Economic Development Corporation, Ft. Meade, West Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce, and Maryland Department of Transportation deserve tremendous credit for spending their time with Steve, Ruth’s Chris corporate executives and me. The Dolben Company, owner and developer of The Village at Odenton Station, and all of our collective efforts made this deal happen. Ruth’s Chris will be a game changer!”
“My ongoing alliance with Klein Enterprises continues to produce positive results,” said Steve de Castro, Franchisee and Owner of nine Ruth’s Chris Steak House locations, including Annapolis, Baltimore (Water Street and Pier 5) and Pikesville, Md., Atlantic City, N.J., and Cary, Durham, Raleigh and Wilmington, N.C. “Trish was determined to bring Ruth’s Chris Steak House to Odenton. Her professionalism, market knowledge and perseverance paid off. I appreciate the Klein/Dolben team commitment to relationship building, community partnership, aggressive follow-up and results!”
Ruth’s Chris Steak House will also offer private banquet rooms and catering, as well as curbside service for MARC commuters, who will be able to text orders from trains, pick them up and head home without having to leave their parking spaces. With over 7,000 hotel rooms within a 15-minute drive, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is positioned to conveniently offer a top notch dining experience to visiting business executives.
