Welcome to the Largest Canadian Quick Serve Chicken Restaurant

The Mary Brown’s story started in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador in 1969. While much has changed since that time, the brand remains true to its commitment to providing delicious food and genuine hospitality at every visit. It’s been that way for more than 50 years – and always will be.

From three stores in Newfoundland, our reputation for mouth-watering food quickly led to store openings in Ontario and Alberta, but it wasn’t until 2007 that Mary Brown’s growth really accelerated. That’s when Newfoundland entrepreneur, Gregory Roberts, acquired the brand. Greg’s passion and commitment to excellence led to rapid expansion throughout Canada. In fact, under Greg’s leadership, the brand has almost tripled its store count. Today, there are almost 200 stores across Canada, with international expansion in the works.
