Bombshells Named to "The Future 50" List of Fastest-Growing Restaurant Concepts

HOUSTON — July 30, 2018— Bombshells Restaurant & Bar, owned by subsidiaries of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK), was named to Restaurant Business magazine's yearly "The Future 50" this month.

"The Future 50" is a listing of the fastest-growing concepts in the country with annualized sales between $25 million and $50 million. Restaurant Business ranked Bombshells No. 21 for its combination of sales and unit growth, average unit volume, military theme, Bombshells Girls, live music, and large menu.

There are six Bombshells locations in Texas (four in Houston and one each in Dallas and Austin). Four more are in development in the Houston area which would create a chain of 10 units by the end of RCI's Fiscal 2019.

"Over the dozen years that Restaurant Business has presented The Future 50, simple, easy-to-understand food—pizza, tacos—has dominated the list," the magazine says. "This year, new cuisines are rising to the top, signaling increasing acceptance of different ingredients, flavors and formats."

"We greatly appreciate the third party recognition this brings Bombshells," said Eric Langan, President and CEO of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK). "This is especially rewarding since we opened the first location only five years ago."
