Another strEATS opening in the lower mainland

With the snow you may be pining for warmer weather, or eating food that reminds you of warmer weather. Do you enjoy casual Mexican food, poutine with a Mexican twist, pot pies, and more? There is a new restaurant opening in Maple Ridge called strEATS (street Eats). I did not notice any wine or beer in their beverage list, but I will check to see if it is available in person. Here is their press release about their new restaurant location.

Skew up your Summer 6 pack with Joey’s Fish & Shrimp Skewer feast


Starting May 10, customers at Joey’s Seafood Restaurants and Joey’s Fish Shacks across Canada will get a great summer deal on the perfect size family meal.

“Limited access to our dining rooms have allowed us to pivot to take-out and our 6-piece Joey’s Fish & Chips is the perfect size meal for a small family," says Joe Klassen, founder and CEO of Joey’s Only Franchising Ltd.  "Feeding your family for under $30 is tough these days, this deal is perfect for most family cohorts.”

Throughout the summer, seafood lovers can feast on this picnic style meal, complete with plenty of natural-cut fries and house made coleslaw. At $29, it’s hard to argue with the value. In addition to the 6-piece meal, Joey’s customers can feast on Shrimp Skewers – flavoured with Sweet & Spicy Thai, Seafood Sauce and Chipotle Aioli.

“We are happy to help keep the costs of feeding your family down," says Dave Holland, Vice President of Marketing and Design, Joey's Restaurants. “Our 6-pack makes a great summertime picnic and our Shrimp Skewers are a delicious value.”

Blending Past and Present Ingredients

Canada’s largest seafood restaurant chain began with a young man’s vision of a casual full-service restaurant catering to the Canadian love for down home style fish and chips. “I was 21 and had an idea for a seafood restaurant,” says Joe Klassen, founder of Joey’s Seafood Restaurants and founder/partner of Joey’s Franchising Group. “I knew it couldn’t be a burger place — there were already so many out there — so in Calgary in 1985, with my wife, Theresa, I started our first store with 39 seats.”

The new restaurant, first known as Joey’s Only, was a mid-priced, friendly place to go for heaping plates of simply delicious seafood, but as Klassen notes, it wasn’t easy going in those early days. “After about six or seven months, one Sunday morning I woke up and looked across at my wife and said, ‘It’s just not working, and all we’re doing is feeding it money. Should we close down the store?’ But she said ‘No, let’s give it another good chance’, and that’s what we did. Things started to climb after that.”

The menu featured not only the ever-popular fish and chips, but also a variety of dishes and recipes including salmon, halibut, shrimp, mussels, and crab. The concept took off and after a year, the couple opened another restaurant in Calgary, and another four after that. In 1989, Klassen partnered with David Mossey to open three more Joey’s in Edmonton.

Joey’s celebrates Fish & Chips Season in style with massive OgopoJoe Fish Sandwich

9 years ago, Joey’s Seafood Restaurants declared the 40 days that follow Ash Wednesday as Fish & Chips Season, and ever since, have had a corner on the market across Canada.

“It’s time again for a Joey’s Seafood favourite, their glorious Fish & Chips,” said Joe Klassen, founder and CEO of Joey’s Only Franchising Ltd.  “Delicious cold-water whitefish, lightly battered alongside sacred tasty golden chips. Now is the time to embrace this divine treat.”

The brand has commanded the seafood market during lent, a naturally occurring time of increased fish consumption. Joey’s pits the OgopoJoe – their famous fish sandwich against the seasonal offerings from other non-traditional seafood brands like Wendy’s and McDonalds.

“We know we have the best Fish Sandwich on the market and encourage everyone to sea the difference,” said Dave Holland, VP of Marketing. “When you do the math, there’s just no comparison. You don’t have to sacrifice flavour during lent.”

“strEATS is an exciting restaurant concept focused on quality, speed and flavour,” added Klassen. “This QSR concept caters to a younger customer and although we are categorized as a “Fast-Casual” restaurant, strEATS is definitely more “FRESH-CASUAL.”
