Chili’s is raising prices to combat rising labor, food costs

Parent Brinker International saw operating margins fall in the first quarter but said demand remains strong.

The raise is one part of Brinker International's plans to create a more socially conscious and sustainable business.

Brinker International, which is buying up franchised units, did not reveal how much it paid Chesapeake Foods for the Mid-Atlantic region restaurants.

Comps for both brands were helped by the It's Just Wings virtual concept, but off-premise business slipped overall.

Maggiano's Italian Classics features Italian standards, with an emphasis on $10 lunch combos.

The 17-year Brinker International veteran will be involved in growing the company's virtual operations as well as overseeing all domestic marketing for Chili's.

The trend started in quick service, but now more casual-dining players are jumping in.

The chicken wing concept now lets customers place pickup orders through Google and Google Maps.

Parent Brinker International revealed plans to expand It's Just Wing's reach and to digitize more of the Chili's experience.
