HEATHROW, Fla. — Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has appointed the former chairman of the National Restaurant Association to head the state's Florida Tourism Commission.
Craig Miller is still on the NRA board and is the chief executive of Ruth's Chris Steak House Inc.
Miller began his 40-plus year restaurant career at the Neptune Seafood Restaurant in Rockledge, Fla., in 1963. He has been involved with operating restaurants within the state for over 25 years.
"The addition of new Ruth's Chris Steak House restaurants in Bonita Springs, Naples and Lake Mary within the next 3 months will bring our total to 14 in the state ... the largest concentration of our restaurants in any one state and, notably, a presence in every region of Florida," Miller said. "Tourism is vital to the success of our business and the economy of the state. I look forward to working with the governor and the Tourism Commission in helping to promote Florida and its hospitality and tourism business."
