The parent of Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse said its ongoing effort to simplify operations lowered labor costs.

The two brands are becoming part of a new holding company that's looking to find young growth chains.

The casual dining chain decided to go all-in as it seeks to generate more takeout sales.

The restaurant veteran will step down at the end of the year after his agreed-upon three-year term comes to a close.

A revamped menu and more technology have the brand on track for its first year of positive sales in more than a decade.

The chain believes a new $10 value meal combined with strong LTOs will give price-conscious guests more options.

The 38-unit brand is converting some locations to counter service in an effort to speed up operations.

The chain wants to attract different types of guests, particularly younger people who spend more.

The chain’s loyal Wine Club members couldn’t wait to get back to its restaurants last year, helping it to become one of the fastest-growing brands in the country.
