Mary Brown’s was founded in Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada in 1969. The province is renowned for hospitality and commitment to community. That same spirit is infused into Mary Brown’s stores coast-to-coast across the vast Canadian landscape – and will carry through globally. At the heart of Mary Brown’s is owner, Gregory Roberts, a Newfoundland-born entrepreneur who bought the brand in 2007 and has since elevated it to the highest international standards.

Commitment to Franchisees

Mary Brown’s 50-year history as a Canadian franchise is matched only by its commitment to its Franchisees. Mary Brown’s has won the Canadian Franchise Association’s Franchisees’ Choice Award 9 years in a row. That’s an honour only a handful of franchises can claim. Hadi Chahin, President & COO, credits Mary Brown’s Franchise Owner/Operators with the brand’s longevity. He says, “They are at the heart of our brand and bring the brand to life in communities across Canada – and going forward – across the globe.”

Premium Quality

Mary Brown’s has developed stringent standards in every facet of operations – cooking, cleanliness, service, product taste/appearance/presentation, store appearance – and beyond. Each store is frequently assessed and graded for adherence to standards by internal and independent parties. All Franchisees are required to complete a rigorous training program which encompasses all aspects of running a successful business.


Looking to the Future

Mary Brown’s Chicken & Taters is celebrating 50 years in 2019. An epic Anniversary Party is planned in the brand’s hometown, St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, with attendance expected by corporate employees, Franchisees, celebrities and dignitaries. It’s an exciting time for the brand – notably one of the fastest-growing in Canada.

What will the next 50 years bring? “More growth and more innovation for sure,” Chahin says, “but we won’t lose sight of what makes Mary Brown’s special. A delicious handcrafted menu and genuine hospitality are who we are – and always will be.”
