A growing number of U.S.-based retail and restaurant chains do business in Australia, and some of the most popular American retail chains have also become some of the most popular chains "down under." Aussies are buying American brands at U.S. retail stores located in cities like Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. American retail brands like Apple, Levi's, and ​McDonald's are finding favor with Aussie consumers.

It doesn't look like the U.S. retail invasion is going to stop anytime soon.  

What's in It for the Retailers?

One big advantage for U.S. retailers doing business in Australia is the fact that there's generally no big cultural backlash with Aussies when American brands and retailers move into town. Australians already partake of a steady diet of American entertainment with American music, TV, and movies. Shopping in some of the largest U.S.-based retail chains seems like a natural and logical extension of the already pervasive American influence.

With a population of just 23 million, Australia has often been overlooked by international retailers because of its relatively isolated location and its lack of city centers with a critical mass of consumers. Australia has become a more popular destination for U.S. and global retail chains since the Great Recession, particularly those that are seeking to escape the flagging economy and overcrowded, competitive retail marketplaces in their own countries.
