Chili’s Times Two. Popular American Eatery Opens Second Location in Costa Rica

Only three months after inaugurating its first restaurant in Escazú, Chili’s has just opened its second, this one in Lincoln Plaza. In September Chili’s entered the Costa Rican food market with the first  Chili’s® Grill & Bar in Multiplaza Escazú.

Chili’s in Costa Rica, in addition to its classic American, Tex-Mexican and Latin-inspired menu favourites made exclusively of natural grilled products, offers items like lomito, the traditional Costa Rican cut of beef, patacones (fried plantain).

In Costa Rica, the Chili’s franchise is being developed by CRB Restaurants, a privately held company in San José. As part of the agreement, CRB Restaurants will develop seven additional Chili’s restaurants in Costa Rica over the next five years.

CRB Restaurants is a joint partnership between Robert Florsheim, an American entrepreneur who has extensive knowledge of the Chili’s menu, and Rodrigo Apestegui, a local business innovator with more than 13 years experience in the restaurant industry, according to the company’s press release in September.

“At Chili’s we are committed to creating a unique environment for our guests to enjoy. Our restaurants have millions of fans all over the world”, according to Carin Stutz, President of Global Business Development, Brinker International.

Chili’s Grill & Bar is the flagship brand of Dallas-based Brinker International, Inc., a recognized leader in casual dining. Chili’s offers a fun, energetic atmosphere and a distinct, fresh mix of grilled American favorites at more than 1,500 locations in 30 countries and U.S. two territories. Brinker’s wholly-owned restaurant brands include Chili’s® Grill & Bar and Maggiano’s Little Italy®. Brinker also holds a minority investment in Romano’s Macaroni Grill®.
