With this foundational plan in place, there focus will be on targeted divisions of the business they consider will drive traffic and improve the guest experience.

CHILI’S Q2 2017 sales dropped 1.3% to $623.6 million over the prior year mainly due to a drop in comparable restaurant sales. Also operating margin showed a decline as compared to the prior year. Brinker reported that restaurant labor, as a fraction of firm sales, surged compared to the previous year following higher wage rates, partly offset by reduced employee health insurance expenses and incentive bonuses.

Restaurant expenses, as a part of company sales, dropped due to reduced advertising and maintenance and repairs expenses, partly offset by sales deleverage.

In the last trading session, the stock price of Brinker International declined more than 2% to close the day at $36.64. The decline came at a share volume of 4.76 million compared to average share volume of 1.49 million.
