Sequoia has been the exclusive national development partner to Yard House Restaurants since 2003.

At that time, Sequoia crafted the initial strategic development plan for Yard House during its entrepreneurial phase, managed its national rollout plan through a private equity placement in 2007, and continues to lead Yard House development today as part of Darden Restaurants, the worlds largest full-service restaurant company.

Yard House has 60 operating units in its portfolio with an average unit volume of almost $9M.

Sequoia has completed and opened over 50 Yard House projects in most every major market in the country including flagship locations in Los Angeles at LA Live, Orlando at I-Drive 360, and the The LINQ on the Las Vegas Strip.  

Sequoia currently manages a development pipeline of over 30 new Yard House locations through 2018, opening between seven and nine new Yard House restaurants each year.
