"They Call Ruth's Chris founder Ruth Fertel, the First Lady of American restaurants," the business states in the bio section of its Yelp profile. "But before there were 150-plus locations serving 45,000 steaks a day, there was a fearless single mother of two who tore an ad from the local newspaper that read 'steak house for sale' and thought, 'I can do that'. The Ruth's Chris Steak House legacy began when Fertel mortgaged her home for $22,000 to purchase 'Chris Steak House, a 60-seat restaurant located in New Orleans."

4. Rebelle
