A new Ram Restaurant & Brewhouse opened in Federal Way this week and another one is scheduled to open this fall, next to the Tulalip Resort and Casino in Tulalip, near Marysville.
That will make three new Rams this year, including one that opened recently in Wilsonville, Ore. There are 10 in the Puget Sound area.
This 2012 surge will push the total of restaurants owned by Lakewood-based Ram International to 32. The group has six distinct brands, most of them casual, full-service restaurants with a combination family/sports bar atmosphere.
