SouthRock’s multi-brand operator, Brazil Airport Restaurants, inaugurated its first airport stores in 2017 and has grown to operate in Brazil’s largest and busiest airports. In 2018 SouthRock became the Master Licensee for Starbucks and TGI Fridays in Brazil. Starbucks expanded for the first time outside of Sao Paulo and Rio in 2019 and now reaches customers in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina, Distrito Federal, Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná, and Minas Gerais. TGI Fridays operates in the Rio & São Paulo regions with expansion plans to enter other states in the near future. In 2019, SouthRock Lab was founded to focus on accelerating technological advancement that elevates customer’s physical and digital experience with brands.
