Original Joe's Restaurant Celebrates Grand Opening of Newest Location in Sherwood Park

Thriving casual dining franchise celebrates its newest location with a two-day event supporting the battle against prostate cancer

SHERWOOD PARK, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2009) - Original Joe's Restaurant and Bar (Joe's), a fast growing casual dining franchise, celebrates the opening of their newest location in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The restaurant is holding two days of grand opening events, with some of the proceeds going towards prostate cancer's "Movember" cause.

During the month of November (dubbed Movember), men commit to growing a moustache to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. Joe's staff decided to participate in the cause by giving back to their community, so the Joe's Movember team was created.

"To celebrate the opening of our Sherwood Park location, our franchise owners wanted to give something back to the community," said Derek Doke, President of Joe's. "Our locations have a solid base of genuine employees and some of them at this location chose to partake in a Joe's Movember team. To show our support for them and for the battle against prostate cancer, this franchise will be donating one dollar from every pint and appetizer sold during our grand opening celebrations to their cause."

The Sherwood Park grand opening activities will take place Monday, November 30, and Tuesday, December 1. Joe's will be offering special pricing on pints and their Joe's hamburger, beer tastings at various times throughout the two days, and hosting a silent auction with all proceeds going to the Movember cause. Further, Joe's will also be burning one lucky table's bill every hour between noon and 10 p.m. on both days.

Joe's currently boasts 27 locations across Western Canada and has an additional 10 locations in development. Each location features a diverse yet simple menu of generous portions, made with quality ingredients at a reasonable price. The majority of the food on their menu is made fresh in-house daily, such as their famous hand-cut fries and famous dill dip.

"I'm proud to say that the demand for Joe's locations continues to remain high, and I attribute our success to our amazing and talented franchisees, managers, employees, the genuine service we offer, and our successful business model," says Doke.

Sherwood Park marks the second Original Joe's location for franchisees Gregory Bott, Shaun Anderson, and Louis Lim who also own the Okotoks, Alberta location. Original Joe's Sherwood Park is located at #65, 301 Wye Road.
