Utah is the sixth state in the U.S. to receive three of the four new restaurant designs being unveiled across the country. The new restaurant designs are a result of nationwide research conducted to study every aspect of the customer’s restaurant experience. Restaurants now feature several seating types to meet a variety of customer needs, including a Wi-Fi bar, flat panel TVs, private booths and cozy lounge seating. The new restaurants also feature Coca-Cola Freestyle drink machines which offer over 100 regular and low-calorie beverages including a variety of branded waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages. Restaurants now feature our proprietary Red Head Roasters coffee line including flavored iced coffees and flavored mocha roasters. The new restaurants also feature a new ordering process with digital menu boards that make ordering simpler. The new restaurants will also offer new bakery items including Cinna-middles, Brownies, Oreo Brownies, Cookies and Fresh-Baked Oatmeal Bars.

Chili’s serves guests in more than 1,500 restaurants in all 50 states and across the world in 33 countries and two territories. Chili’s Grill & Bar opened its first restaurant in 1975 in Dallas, Texas. Created as a hamburger restaurant/chili house with a uniquely Southwestern flair, Chili’s served homemade-quality food, draft beer and frozen drinks in a casual atmosphere. A typical Chili’s Grill & Bar restaurant is roughly 6,000 square feet, includes seating for 200 guests and is staffed by approximately 120 ChiliHeads. Most Chili’s are stand-alone operations located convenient to major retail, residential and commercial/office centers. However, Chili’s Too locations can be found in shopping malls, airports and similar non-traditional locations both domestically and internationally.
