About this Report

Darden Restaurants is a leading player in full-service restaurants with a multi-brand portfolio. The company focuses on company-owned restaurants rather than franchising in order to better control operations, costs and customer experience. Its activities are largely centred on North America; however, international expansion (through franchising) is part of the company’s growth strategy, starting with the entry in the Middle East through a franchise agreement with Americana Group in 2010.
