A friend asked me if I know who sources Ruths Chris steaks. He asked them in an email but did not get a response. If anyone knows, please respond.
During fiscal 2010 the Company purchased more than 60% of the beef it used in its company-owned Ruth’s
Chris restaurants from one vendor, New City Packing Company, Inc. In addition, the Company has a long-term
distribution arrangement with a national food and restaurant supply distributor, Distribution Market Advantage,
Inc. (DMA), which purchases products for the Company from various suppliers and through which currently all
64 of its company-owned Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants receive a significant portion of their food
supplies. The Company purchased more than 80% of the fresh seafood served in its Mitchell’s Fish Market from
two vendors, Michael’s Finer Meats and Seafood and Save On Seafood Company.

Great line. Mind if I borrow it?
