How Many Restaurants Does Gordon Ramsay Own, Anyway?

Chef Gordon Ramsay is recognized worldwide for his hot-tempered personality and profanity-laced delivery, which he freely unleashes across his many TV shows. Programs such as "Hell's Kitchen," "Kitchen Nightmares," "MasterChef," and many others have made him a household name. Perhaps the only thing he has more of than television series are the restaurants he owns.

With eateries around the globe, Ramsay's website lists 24 restaurant brands under the chef's belt, spanning 80 locations. Running the gamut from Michelin-starred fine dining to fast casual and airport to-go counters, his restaurants span Europe (England, France, Scotland), North America (United States, Canada), Asia (China, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand), and the Middle East (Qatar, United Arab Emirates). With franchise opportunities for many of his properties and new locations on the way, his restaurant tally is constantly growing.

Born in Scotland and raised in Britain, Ramsay owns numerous restaurants in London, with satellites in and beyond the U.K. He also owns many that are exclusively located in the U.S., as well as a few international crossovers found on both sides of the ocean. Additionally, he owns the Gordon Ramsay Academy, a cooking school that takes students from beginners to master levels, holds cook-off challenges, and functions to build and train teams. However, it is his staggering number of restaurants that have literally put the famed chef on the gastronomical map.

Commuters at London's Heathrow Airport can stop at Plane Food for full-service dining, or get takeaway to eat in-flight.

Three of Ramsay's Michelin-star restaurants are in London. Restaurant Gordon Ramsay has held three Michelin stars for its high-end French cuisine since 2001. Pétrus has one Michelin star, and offers a seven-course seasonal tasting menu. Restaurant 1890 at The Savoy has one Michelin star, and takes its cue from the legendary French chef Georges Auguste Escoffier, who created menus for the hotel in its eponymous year. In France, Le Pressoir d'Argent at the InterContinental Bordeaux Le Grand Hôtel holds two Michelin stars, and Au Trianon at the Waldorf Astoria in Versailles claims one star, where its surroundings in the Trianon Palace are as breathtaking as its food.
