Gordon Ramsay's Restaurant Empire Wasn't Built In A Day

Ramsay's restaurant empire started by handling a few tables in a year. Soon later, those few tables turned into managing thousands of tables. Those tables were the foundation of his entire career in the culinary industry and other industries, such as gaming and the' Hell's kitchen' new slot game, where even you can play with fire without getting burnt. 


In a nutshell, Gordon Ramsay is a TV personality, movie star, author, and most importantly, a world-renowned chef and restaurateur. Nevertheless, considering his table management skills and newly found slot game producing ability, he might also add casino table games to that list as well.

Although it seems like Ramsay gained his wild success overnight, he played with fire in more places than the kitchen to make it where he is now. One of those places being, Gordon Ramsay At Royal Hospital Road. 


Restaurant Gordon Ramsay At Royal Hospital Road


After a sports injury pushed his soccer career to the sidelines, Ramsay ended up taking another road to success. Specifically, Royal Hospital Road, otherwise known as his first solo restaurant, opened in 1998 and still serving signature Ramsay meals after more than two decades. In addition, this one restaurant led to the opening of approximately 57 other restaurants worldwide.


However, before Restaurant Gordon Ramsay opened its doors to the public, Gordon had to make peace with the fact that becoming a professional sports star was no longer in the cards. That is when he decided to attend North Oxon Technical College, where he completed a course in hotel management and graduated at the age of 21. This love for the culinary arts led him to perfect his culinary skills under master chefs such as Albert Roux, Joel Robuchon, and Guy Savoy. 


Seven Michelin Stars Worldwide


Apart from being the star of many television shows and movies, Ramsay earned himself several stars off-screen. The restaurant that was the stepping stone to his career, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, was awarded three Michelin Stars in 2001 and is now London's longest-running restaurant to hold this award. 


He also has another 4 Michelin stars to his name awarded through restaurant P├ętrus in Knightsbridge, Le Pressoir d'Argent in Bordeaux, and Gordon Ramsay au Trianon in Versailles.


Over his entire career so far, Ramsay acquired 16 Michelin Stars, making him the third most rewarded chef globally. Behind his beloved and late mentor Joel Robuchon and Alain Ducasse. 


Inevitable Hiccups In Business


Of course, just like every other business venture, even a businessman such as Ramsay didn't have his plans go as planned, and several roadblocks took him in a different direction. You could have witnessed this just at the start of his career and by several losses of Michelin Stars. Nevertheless, his persistence, determination, and incredible work hours resulted in over 50 restaurants since the start of his career.


Gordon Ramsay once said in a Reddit takeover, "I work incredibly hard. I have about three to four hours a day off, and I work my freakin' ass off because I get so excited with projects!"
