The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, USA.
Brinker operates over 1,500 restaurants across 32 countries and two territories – attracting over a million customers on a daily basis.
The first Chili’s® Grill & Bar, founded by Larry Legine, was opened in Dallas on March 13, 1975. The restaurant was unique, described as being “casual dining, with a full-service restaurant boasting a fun, funky and laid back atmosphere.”
Chili’s was a success and in 1983 Norman Brinker, a prominent restaurant industry magnate, bought Chili’s 23 restaurant locations.
In 1990 Chili’s Inc. went public on the New York Stock Exchange and changed its name to Brinker International, Inc. A year later Brinker made its first step in globalizing the company by opening its first restaurant in Canada.
Brinker International Inc., has more than 100,000 team members that help operate the company’s Chili’s Grill & Bar (a casual dining restaurant chain with a fun and energetic atmosphere) and Maggiano’s Little Italy (a family style restaurant chain that focuses on Italian-American cuisine served in a warm and friendly atmosphere).
