Company Description

Chili's is a full-service restaurant chain that serves a wide variety of American and Tex-Mex cuisine, such as burgers, ribs and fajitas. The company is owned and operated by Brinker International, which also operates Italian restaurant brand Maggiano’s.

Founded in 1975 in Dallas, Texas, by Larry Lavine, the first Chili’s was a burger shack with only 25 menu items. It now has more than 1,500 locations, mostly in the U.S.

Chili’s also has a rewards system unlike others in the industry, offering free chips and salsa or a non-alcoholic beverage to rewards members on every visit.
