Canadians were first introduced to the great taste of Mary Brown’s in 1969 when two Newfoundlanders, Pat Tarrant and Cyril Fleming, opened their first restaurant in St. John’s, Newfoundland. During that first year, they tripled in size, opening two more restaurants under the original name. We changed our name to Mary Brown’s soon after, in honour of the woman behind our Signature Chicken recipe. Since then Mary Brown’s has become a household name, and our reputation has only grown! Renowned for big, juicy, tender chicken, today Mary Brown’s has over 85 stores across Canada and a number of International locations under development that offer the Chicken & Taters you’ve come to love.
