Luby's Cafeteria is a restaurant chain founded by Bob Luby and his cousin, Charles Johnson, in San Antonio, Texas, in 1947. In 1959, the company incorporated as Cafeterias, Inc. before becoming a publicly held corporation in 1973. In 1981, the company changed its name to Luby's Cafeterias, Inc., and it joined the New York Stock Exchange in 1982.
As of 2015, there are 91 Luby's Cafeterias in Texas, as well as one location in Arkansas, one in Oklahoma and one in Mississippi. In addition to the 94 restaurant locations, Luby's Culinary Services has locations on some college campuses and in office buildings and health care facilities in Texas and surrounding areas. Luby's also offers catering for large, private events.
