Regina, SK, May 26, 2015 – On Saturday, April 25th, Mary Brown’s Famous Chicken & Taters, the proudly Canadian quick serve chicken restaurant, celebrated their expansion across Canada with a special grand opening of their 125th store in Regina.
With just the right amount of pomp and splendor, the day got off to an upbeat and busy start with two well-known Regina personalities City Councillor Jerry Flegel and retired Saskatchewan Roughrider George Reed present to welcome Guests to officially open the new restaurant.
The store is located at 5602 Rochdale Boulevard, Unit #4, Regina, and just like the other 124 restaurants in the chain, it features the brand's signature menu items, including fresh made-from-scratch chicken, fresh hand-cut Taters and the plump and juicy Big Mary Sandwich.
Regina City Councillor Jerry Flegel addressed the crowd that we packed tightly into the store. He shared an excitement and congratulated Mary Brown’s for making this investment into the local community of Regina. He was candid in saying that not only does Mary Brown’s serve up great-tasting chicken, but their commitment to servicing and growing the municipality through job creation and charitable involvement will benefit so many here in Regina.
In honour of opening its 125th store, Mary Brown’s treated its first 125 customers at the Regina grand opening to free Big Mary Sandwiches for one year. Despite the grey skies and a little drizzle, happy customers lined up early in the day, including a group of loyal Mary Brown’s fans that arrived with lawn chairs at 6:30am to ensure they would make the count.
Greg Roberts, CEO of Mary Brown’s consistently expresses his passion and pride every time the company opens a new store. “This is a true milestone for Mary Brown’s, as we are in our biggest year of growth and I’m so excited we get to celebrate our 125th store opening with the people of Regina, Saskatchewan, says Greg. “We have experienced 12 years of consecutive same store sales growth and are confident that this trend will continue with even more expansion and growth in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and across the country.”
With 45 years of history and a loyal customer base, Mary Brown’s is known coast-to-coast for chicken that is prepared fresh daily in-store using their very own proprietary cooking method, a secret marinade and special spice blend, and Taters that are hand-cut every day and cooked to golden perfection.
