Ricky's All Day Grill opens in Regina
Successful casual family dining brand expands to Regina
October 04, 2007 // Franchising.com // Regina, Saskatchewan, -- Ricky's All Day Grill, one of the fastest growing casual restaurant chains in Western Canada, has opened its first location in Regina. The 200-seat restaurant is situated on 777 Albert Street at the Best Western Seven Oaks and is one of the largest Ricky's in Canada.
The local entrepreneurs who own and operate the new restaurant and also manage the Best Western property said they introduced the Ricky's brand to Regina because it fits the mold of their hotel clientele.
"We are excited to introduce the first Ricky's to Regina and look forward to offering the community a new place to dine that fills you up without emptying your pocket," said Larry Bird, co-franchisee of Regina-based Ricky's All Day Grill and former Saskatchewan Rough Riders football player. "Our hotel caters to a family based clientele and some business guests, which we believe fits well with the Ricky's mid-scale family casual dining brand."
"Ricky's also has an expansive menu featuring fresh ingredients, hearty meals in the $8 to $10 range with catchy names like Yukon Big Bite and a fun atmosphere that we believe will be a hit."
The 5,000 sq. ft. restaurant features a licensed lounge with raised seating, large flat screen TVs, two signature fireplaces, and a bold, fun décor.
Ricky's All Day Grill has 56 locations in Western Canada with eight new locations under development. The company has successfully appealed to a broad base of customers of all ages because of its menu variety, décor and famous breakfasts.
Founded in 1960, Ricky's originally launched as a pancake restaurant in British Columbia. Since the late 1970's, it has evolved into a successful restaurant franchise featuring all-day menus with more than 110 mouth-watering items.
Today, Ricky's patrons can order everything from Asian fusion food to baby back ribs and chicken. It also offers innovative special menus throughout the year and remains a popular morning destination for executives and families alike.
