Browns Socialhouse® Surpasses $100M in Sales and Celebrates Exponential Growth

13 New Locations in 2015 Fuel Browns' Franchise Growth Across Canada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 2, 2015) - Browns Socialhouse, still the fastest growing premium casual franchised restaurant chain in Canada, is thrilled to announce record breaking growth in 2015, having already achieved over $100M in system wide sales. This past week, the company added three new franchised units, in Chilliwack, BC, Guildford (Surrey), BC, and Mount Royal Village (Calgary), AB, with one more to come, in Weyburn, SK. This will drive the total to 49 restaurants under the Browns Restaurant Group brand umbrella. Opening 13 new locations (including the first London Bull®) this past year sets another record for single year growth.

Browns Socialhouse® is clearly still on fire, having a track record of more than 50% growth over three consecutive years. With restaurants operating all across Western Canada and now in Ontario, Browns Socialhouse® continues to expand and reach new guests. There are 14 new restaurant locations scheduled to open in the coming twelve months, bringing the system to over 60 units by year end 2016. The second London Bull® unit will open in mid-2016.

According to Browns Restaurant Group, the secret to their fast and furious growth and success is the company's dedication to a smaller footprint model - offering lower startup costs, more affordable rent and operating costs and a more manageable and close-knit staff. This makes it both easier and achievable for entrepreneurial-minded individuals, and because the model has been proven to succeed, the ability to attract and retain employees who are excited to work at a Browns Socialhouse is part of the magic of the brand formula.

"2015 was an incredibly exciting year for us and 2016 will be even more so. We have plenty of committed expansion over the coming 12-18 months, and there are no signs of this slowing down in the next while," said Bruce Fox, COO & VP Development for Browns Restaurant Group. "Our franchisees and multi-unit developers are on a fast-paced train ride, thanks to the appetite of the marketplace for our particular spin on the upscale casual guest experience. It's gratifying to see that the industry is recognizing our growth and success, but the real credit goes to our hardworking franchise owners who believe in the brand."
