We’re a Truly Canadian, family-owned restaurant, celebrating almost 50 years in business and over 140 locations.

The Mary Brown’s story is built on an unwavering commitment to offering great food and excellent service at every visit. It’s been that way for almost 50 years.

The original Mary.

The original Mary Brown's badge.

Mary Brown's started back in 1969 with 3 store openings in Newfoundland. From day 1, every Guest that walked through our doors enjoyed the genuine hospitality and delicious food that are at the heart of our success. Our reputation for mouth-watering food led to store openings in Ontario and Alberta, but it wasn't until 2007 that Mary Brown’s growth really accelerated when Newfoundland entrepreneur, Greg Roberts, acquired the brand. Greg's passion and commitment to excellence led to rapid expansion coast to coast, north and south throughout Canada.

To this day, our consistent growth and success is a testament to our heritage - and that’s something we’re proud of.

Why are we so successful?

Simple, really. Our fresh Signature Chicken and hand-cut Taters are Made Fresh from Scratch everyday in restaurant, attracting legions of dedicated Guests who crave the superior quality and flavour found only at Mary Brown’s.

Our environment is warm and welcoming. We know our Guests by name and they know they’ll get the best quick serve experience around each and every time they visit our stores.

It’s a system that has consistently proven itself for almost 5 decades! When you become a Franchisee we’ll provide you with all the tools and support you’ll need to continue to build on the Mary Brown’s success story for years to come.

We decided to join the Mary Brown’s team after a lengthy search for a franchise opportunity. Their outstanding commitment to quality made our decision easy – and great personnel and training made the process fun.
