Ruth’s Chris Steak House Grand Rapids, located in the Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids, said this week it accepted the 2016 Franchise Leadership Team of the Year award from the corporate office of Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

It is the “top honor” presented by the Ruth’s Chris Steak House to its more than 150 franchisees.
