Brinker International, a recognized leader in the casual dining industry, serves more than one million guests in its restaurants daily. Its 34-year history has seen the organization morph from a single restaurant in Dallas, Texas, into one that now boasts nearly 1,700 locations in 29 countries and two American territories, with about a third of number franchisees. Brinker's flagship Chili's Grill & Bar chain boasts more than 1,400 restaurants alone. Familiar brands like On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina and Maggiano's Little Italy comprise rest. Purveyor survives on well-managed cash and accounting records. Without both, its payments to numerous food and alcohol vendors could lag, its large vendor supply chain might become interrupted, and company managers couldn't make strategic decisions such as menu items.
