Sizzler, the global franchise, western - style restaurant was first opened in Culver City, California on January 27, 1958 by pioneering restaurateurs Del and Helen Johnson, The name ‘Sizzler’ comes from ‘sizzle’ sound of steak on the hot plate.

The launch menu was simple - two types of steak plus a salad and rolls. By the early sixties, Del and Helen added hamburgers and sandwiches to the menu and expanded to three locations in suburban Los Angeles. Later, Mr. Johnson started operating Sizzler under franchise concept, which proved to be very successful with rapid growth to 140 restaurants in California.

In late 1966, Del and Helen decided to retire and sold their Sizzler business to Jim Collins, who later became the largest fast food franchiser on the US’s West Coast.

In 1985, Collins Foods International, controlling the Sizzler franchise, moved the brand into the Australian market with its first location in Annerley, a suburb of Brisbane, before expanding throughout Queensland, New South Wales, and North and West Australia.

In Thailand, the Sizzler franchise is handled by SLRT Limited, a subsidiary of The Minor Food Group Plc, one of Thailand’s most successful restaurant operators.

The first location opened on January 9, 1992 on the 2nd floor of the Fifty Fifth Plaza, Sukhumvit 55, Bangkok (Closed store). Later, Sizzler Thailand expanded into 43 restaurants with 25 in Bangkok and 18 in major provinces. Click here for Sizzler locations.
