Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:AD8.Germany
Arcos Dorados Holdings Inc was incorporated on December 9, 2010 under the laws of the British Virgin Islands as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Arcos Dorados Limited, the prior holding company for the Arcos Dorados business. The Company operates its McDonald's-branded restaurants under two basic structures: Company-operated restaurants operated by it and franchised restaurants operated by franchisees. As of December 31, 2013, it operated or franchised 2062 McDonald's branded restaurants, which represented 7.2% of McDonald's total franchised restaurants worldwide. It divides its operations into four geographical divisions: Brazil; the Caribbean division, consisting of Aruba, Colombia, Curaçao, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, the U.S. Virgin Islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas and Venezuela; North Latin America division, or NOLAD, consisting of Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama; and South Latin America division, or SLAD, consisting of Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. It conducts substantially all its business through its indirect, wholly-owned Dutch subsidiary Arcos Dorados B.V. As of December 31, 2013, 39.4% of our restaurants were located in Brazil, 18.3% in South Latin America division, or SLAD, 24.6% in North Latin America division, or NOLAD and 17.7% in the Caribbean division. The Company's main competitors include Burger King, Yum! Brands (which operates KFC restaurants and Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut Express restaurants) and Subway. In Brazil, it also compete with Habib's, a Brazilian QSR chain that focuses on Middle Eastern food, and Bob's, a mainly Brazilian QSR chain that focuses on hamburger product offerings.
