Browns Socialhouse® Wins Award for Greatest Percent Increase and Jumps Higher in Foodservice & Hospitality Magazine's Top 100 Rankings

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 30, 2015) - Once again Browns Socialhouse® is the fastest growing full service restaurant chain in Canada. Foodservice & Hospitality Magazine held their annual celebration of the top performers in Canada's foodservice industry in Toronto on June 10th, 2015, to recognize leading brands. Having opened 10 new Browns Socialhouse® locations across 5 provinces, including one additional Scotty Browns franchise in Bellevue, Washington, the company moved up 15 places in the Top 100 rankings to land at #53 for 2014.

Browns Socialhouse® is clearly on fire having a track record of more than 50% growth over three consecutive years. 2015 is anticipated to be no different with 15 new franchises in the pipeline, which will push the system over the 50-unit mark.

Offering a premium casual dining experience complete with a high quality, diverse food menu in a vibrant and approachable 'everybody-knows-your-name' environment, Browns Socialhouse® now has franchises in 5 Canadian provinces.

"2014 was an incredibly exciting year for us. We have plenty of committed expansion over the coming 12-18 months, and there are no signs of this slowing down in the next few years," 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."

Browns Socialhouse® is growing rapidly across Western Canada, employing hundreds of individuals in locally owned franchises in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The restaurant group, known for its social/casual atmosphere, is anticipating that its expansion into Ontario will take a similar path, once appropriate franchisees and developers are located. The first Ontario Browns Socialhouse® opened in Oakville at Dundas and Winston Churchill in November 2014.
