VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 4, 2014) - Starting March 4, 2014, over 40 Browns Socialhouse Owners and Operators will join together representing the more than 25 locations open across Canada and the United States. This year's Browns Socialhouse conference rounds out a year of exponential growth for Canada's fastest growing franchised restaurant chains. Over the past 12 months Browns Restaurant Group has opened 8 new locations and exceeded $52,000,000 in sales - a 49% year over year increase.
According to Chief Operating Officer, Bruce Fox, "We had an incredible year and are very proud of the growth opportunities we've been able to create for our franchisees."
The Browns Socialhouse approach to growth has focused on capitalizing on the demand for premium casual dining, by offering a game changing socialhouse concept that delivers high quality food and experience in a modernized local pub setting. The brilliance of the busy and intimate socialhouse concept is that locations require a much smaller footprint making them affordable and more scalable to operate, manage and grow than other premium casual dinning concepts.
The 2014 Browns Restaurant Group Conference will kick off in Palm Springs, California with a motivational welcome from Browns Socialhouse Founder & CEO Scott Morison. The following 3 days will include growth driven workshops focused on a best practices theme. The conference will be capped off with a series of awards recognizing the top performers within the organization.
Categories of recognition include: best overall restaurant audit score, year over year sales growth, Franchise of the Year, and Rookie of the Year.
