About Us

Our Story

Formed in late 2008, Ruggles Green is Houston’s first Certified Green Restaurant

Ruggles Green is owned and operated by Hargett Hunter Capital Partners. The original Ruggles Green located off West Alabama in River Oaks/Upper Kirby opened its doors in December of 2008.  It became the first Certified Green Restaurant in Houston, Texas and because of this, it received a lot of attention from the local media.

Our second location was built in 2010, in the newly constructed CITYCENTRE complex.  This location sits to the side of the CITYCENTRE grassy plaza where at various times you will find live music, movies and playtime which makes our CITYCENTRE a desirable hotspot.  In 2011, our CITYCENTRE location became one of the only 4-star certified restaurants in the United States and rose to the title of the Greenest Restaurant in Texas!

Soon after, in October of 2012, the Sugar Land location opened inside the Sugar Land Town Square complex, and then in April 2013 our little Heights location off 11st Street and Studewood opened its doors.  Our 5th and most recent new location opened in January 2015, in the suburban neighborhood known as The Woodlands.

Ruggles Green offers healthy and delicious food that incorporate local, often times organic and seasonal items when available.  We have an extensive gluten-free menu and are very conscientious of the food allergy needs of our guests.  We are leaders in offering of a premium fast-casual dining experience while operating in a sustainable manner.  Therefore, we are excited to continue our mission operating the Greenest Restaurants in the country and look forward expanding this concept in neighborhoods all across the United States.
