In 1985, Joe Klassen realized that there was a market opportunity between the 6,000 square foot full-service seafood concepts like Red Lobster, and the fast-food chains like Long John Silvers. The result was the creation of a high-quality, full service, mid-priced, neighborhood seafood restaurant that started as Joey’s Only Seafood and is known today as Joey’s Seafood Restaurants®. The concept quickly established a reputation for its quaint, entertaining atmosphere, delicious made-to-order seafood entrees, and engaging customer service. Today, Joey’s Seafood Restaurants® enjoy strong brand recognition across Canada. Relying on a proven track record and a solid operating system, Joey’s offers their franchise owners all the tools necessary for success.
