Tumbleweed Southwest Grill is a leading American based chain restaurant business. Tumbleweed Southwest Grill was founded by George and Linda Keller in 1975 with the first restaurant located in a small building in New Albany, Indiana. The restaurant started by serving original American fusion food and this became an instant hit with many people travelling from far just to be served their dishes. In 1995, the restaurant had grown to 7 stores and among the menu addition was wood-fired grilling. By then, it had already started planning expansion beyond the local area and this saw the start of franchises with the most notable one headed by Matt Higgins. Tumbleweed Southwest Grill operates as a Subsidiary of the CFS(Custom Foods Solutions).
