The stage is set to slam the door shut on any doubt that Smoke’s Poutinerie has achieved Global Domination! status.

“I keep getting told it can’t be done, and I say ‘You have to live it to believe it’,” said Ryan Smolkin, CEO (chief entertainment officer) of Smoke’s Poutinerie. “Get on the GRAVY TRAIN for a WEIRD, WILD & WACKY experience! These five agreements are just the beginning of our 2017 journey, which includes a huge focus on our Brand & Culture and our Global Domination! Sit down, buckle up and get ready for the ride!”
