Maggiano's Little Italy


Shutdowns are hurting Chili's sales this month

Same-store sales have slipped during the period from -1% to -12.3% and parent Brinker International is pulling back quarterly guidance.


Chili's parent gets into the wings delivery business

It's Just Wings will provide its signature product from the kitchens of Chili's and Maggiano's.

Brinker said the switch reflects a change in its management structure.

COVID-19 has elevated stress and anxiety levels among owners, employees and customers. Here’s how operators are coping.

Delivery and takeout business has more than doubled, but off-premise is generating only about 30%-35% of former sales levels.

The changeover is part of a stepped-up effort to boost in-store business.

The casual chain is looking at staffing changes and new packaging after posting a 2.9% rise in Q1 comps, in part because of delivery.

Ellie Doty will be responsible for consumer insights and menu development, among other duties.

Brinker International said the redirections will set up the casual giant for extended growth.

The third-party service also becomes the exclusive delivery partner of Maggiano’s.
