Brinker International Inc in Consumer Foodservice

Company Profile

About This Report

Mar 2012

As other US full-service restaurant operators, Brinker was severely hit by the economic downturn. The company, having reduced its portfolio to just two brands (Chili’s and Maggiano’s), has put in place a multi-pronged strategy to turn around its US business, with a strong focus on emphasising everyday value. International expansion also plays a central role in the company’s long-term growth strategy, with BRICs high on its list of priority markets.
