Britney Ruby Miller
President, Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment
Britney Ruby Miller is President of Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment where she leads a team of more than 700 employees across 7 luxury steakhouses in Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.
Growing up in the organization founded by her father Jeff Ruby in 1981, she learned the intricacies of the restaurant business from some of the best. Starting at a very young age, she worked literally every position in the house from hourly kitchen and hostess to server and management positions.
In 2011, Britney was promoted to the Corporate office and it is here where her transformational impact on the business and the communities it serves began. Since then and her rise to President, she has overseen remarkable growth. As 4 restaurants became 7 with year over year same store sales growth, goals were surpassed and KPIs hit record levels. One of her proudest professional accomplishments is building an incredible corporate team of 38 experts in their respective departments, where a large and growing percentage are women.
Ruby’s restaurants have earned national acclaim - they have been recognized by Travel + Leisure’s Best Steakhouses in the U.S and 100 Best Restaurants Worth Splurging On; Food Network’s Top 50 Steakhouses in America; listed in USA Today as one of the Top 10 steakhouses in America and Business Insider’s America’s Top Steakhouses, among others.
While this remarkable business story continues to evolve, perhaps even more important to her personally is the impact she and her family are making in the community. As a co-founder and board member of the Jeff Ruby Foundation, she has helped spearhead a strategic initiative to help eradicate childhood poverty through, first, improving a challenged foster care system. After only 2 years, tremendous progress has been made in identifying and supporting key organizations that are affecting positive change, building strong relationships with legislators, governors and U.S. Senators across several states and creating fundraising platforms through which to launch new programs.
Britney also sits on the Board of Directors at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College Foundation and is a member of the Young Presidents Organization. She is a keynote speaker where she delivers speeches to thousands of people each year; she is also currently pursuing her executive MBA at Xavier University.
Britney resides in Cincinnati, OH with her husband Caleb and 4 children, Caden, Gracie, Hannah and Asher and brand new puppy, Licorice.
