Ponderosa Logo.Many older people remember the old popular cowboy series Bonanza, and the younger generation may have seen some reruns. This is where the names for Ponderosa Steakhouse and Bonanza Steakhouse, come from. The names originated from the series, which took place at the Ponderosa Ranch. The two businesses were separate companies that merged into a franchise called Macromedia (1997), so both names are used for the steakhouse. The first Bonanza restaurant opened in Westport, Connecticut in 1963. Dan Blocker, the actor who played Hoss in the series, founded it. The Ponderosa chain was founded in 1968 by other businessmen in Kokomo, Indiana.
