Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are there franchise opportunities for any Brinker restaurant concept besides Chili's and Romano’s Macaroni Grill?
A. Chili's and Romano’s Macaroni Grill are the only restaurants we are actively franchising. The only opportunities for Romano's Macaroni Grill are international. The Chili's brand is available for domestic franchise development in selected "Small Town" markets and selected international markets.
Q. Can I get information for Chili's or Romano’s Macaroni Grill franchise opportunities for countries or territories that are not listed?
A. Although we are not actively pursuing franchise opportunities and candidates in markets other than the ones listed for Chili's and Romano’s Macaroni Grill respectively, we will accept information about your organization and your interest in Chili's or Romano’s Macaroni Grill for markets besides the ones listed. Please understand that it is rare for us to change our international development plans and domestic market priorities for any one-market opportunity, but we recognize unique and well-timed opportunities may justify rearranging our plans and we are willing to consider such situations. If, after receiving and reviewing your information, we wish to open discussions regarding a franchise opportunity, we will furnish information on Brinker and Chili's or Romano’s Macaroni Grill at that time.
Q. Can you send me financial information such as typical profits, sales, ROI's, investment amounts, etc. for a Chili's or Romano’s Macaroni Grill restaurant franchise?
A. We have a Uniform Franchise Offering Circular, which contains various investment cost information under Item 7 of the Circular. This document also contains an earnings claim for our Chili’s small town prototype only. However, we only furnish a copy of the Circular once we receive your information and we wish to continue discussions.
Q. What are the typical franchise terms under a Chili's or Romano’s Macaroni Grill franchise agreement?
A. Standard terms are contained in our Uniform Franchise Offering Circular which we provide only after we receive your information and Brinker wishes to open discussions with your organization.
Q. I'm in the U.S., I have a great location, and there is no other Chili's or Romano’s Macaroni Grill in the area. Can I have a franchise if I meet the qualifications?
A. As stated above, we have only limited small town Chili's opportunities currently available. If you would like to submit information to us regarding your location, your restaurant owner/operator experience, financial qualifications, etc., we will be happy to review your information. If, after reviewing your information, we determine that your group meets our qualifications and your site is an area that we are interested in pursuing for franchising, we will contact you.
