Fogo de Chão

General Information
Business:

Fogo de Chão (fogo-dee-shoun) is a leading Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, which has specialized for over 35 years in fire-roasting high-quality meats utilizing the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco. We deliver a distinctive and authentic Brazilian dining experience through the combination of our high-quality Brazilian cuisine and our differentiated service model known as espeto corrido (Portuguese for “continuous service”) delivered by our churrasqueiros, which we refer to as our gaucho chefs. We offer our guests a tasting menu of meats featuring up to 20 cuts, simply seasoned and carefully fire-roasted to expose their natural flavors. We opened our first restaurant in 1979 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. In 1986, we expanded to São Paulo, Brazil, a city in which we now operate five restaurants. Encouraged by our growth in Brazil, we opened our first restaurant in the United States in 1997 in Addison, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, and have since expanded our footprint nationwide. We currently operate 26 restaurants in the United States and nine in Brazil. From the 2010 to 2014 fiscal years, we grew our restaurant count by a compound annual growth rate (“CAGR”) of 11.5%.
