(USA Today) – Darden Restaurants plans to separate part of the company into an independent, publicly traded real estate investment trust, the company said Tuesday.

Darden, which owns Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse, among other other restaurants, will spin off about 430 of its more than 1,500 restaurants into the REIT. The plan is to lease most all of them back to Darden. The company expects the deal to be complete by the end of the year.
