Chili’s was founded by Larry Lavine in Texas in 1975, and is currently owned by Brinker International, which also owns Maggiano’s Little Italy worldwide. The first Chili’s was opened in Dallas, and by the 1980s, 28 locations were opened across the region. Lavine sold his company to Norman E. Brinker in 1983.
Chili’s restaurants run in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and even Africa. As of 2015, there were over 1,550 locations worldwide.
