After a recent acquisition binge, Landry’s is on a hiring spree.

The Houston-based restaurant chain is trying to fill 175 positions at its corporate headquarters by year’s end.

Many of the positions opened after Landry’s closed out-of state offices of recent chains it acquired since going private in October 2010.

Last year, the company bought the 40-unit Claim Jumper restaurant chain, the 32-unit Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and the 12- unit Oceanaire seafood chain.

When their offices in California and Minneapolis were closed, most of the employees chose not to relocate to Houston, said Tilman Fertitta, Landry’s chairman and CEO.

Landry’s will also close the Portland, Ore. offices of McCormick & Schmick’s, which it recently announced plans to buy, he said.
