Rapid Growth Will Continue Throughout the Year
March 17, 2008 // Franchising.com // Ontario,— The Firkin Group of Pubs continues to validate its tagline as the largest and fastest growing pub chain in North America as it opens 14 new pubs in 2008. The company has already opened four locations this year and has another two planned in the next three weeks in California and Washington.
"Firkin has seen tremendous growth over the past year," says Larry Isaacs, Firkin Director of Marketing. "In 2007 we opened seven pubs in the U.S. and sold multi-unit franchising deals in 10 states. We are very confident that this year we will double that number."
The four most recent Firkin locations are in Carson City, Nevada, Visalia and Tracy, California and Orlando, Florida. In March, the chain will welcome two more locations in California and Washington. Additional states that have pubs in development include North Dakota, Virginia, Georgia and Florida.
The Firkin Group of Pubs is the most popular neighborhood pub chain in North America serving spectacular food in a friendly, pub-like atmosphere it draws families, students and professionals alike. Firkin currently has 46 open locations in North America, including 15 stores in the U.S., and expects to have 1,000 pubs in development by 2010.
Stanley Adelson and Ian Fisher opened their first pub, Fox and Firkin, in Toronto in May 1987. It was the idea of a traditional English neighborhood pub – where people could enjoy good drink and food in good company – that quickly built a stable of regulars. Selections range from a variety of beverages and delicious meals including: traditional English pub fare like fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches, as well as a selection of entrée dishes such as Bangers and Mash, Shepherd's pie, salads and—of course—a wide assortment of draft beers on tap and in the bottle.
