DARTMOUTH, N.S.— Cheese Curds Gourmet Burgers + Poutinerie (Cheese Curds) and Habanerosä Modern Taco Bar (Habaneros) is opening its first franchise restaurant this Spring in Oromocto, N.B. Renovations are already underway for the new 50-seat Cheese Curds/Habaneros location in downtown Oromocto, which will feature the extensive Cheese Curds/Habaneros menu, including its signature burgers and poutines, Mexican-fusion tacos and burritos and local beer on tap.
“New Brunswick entrepreneur Rick Kirkpatrick is the perfect person to bring Cheese Curds/Habaneros to Oromocto,” says chef Bill Pratt, president and CEO of The Chef Inspired Group of Restaurants. “The Oromocto restaurant will be our first in New Brunswick and our third combination Cheese Curds/Habaneros restaurant in Atlantic Canada.”
“I’ve been a Cheese Curds/Habaneros fan for a long time — in fact, I sat in one of the Dartmouth restaurants a few years ago, thinking ‘this would be a great franchise,” says Kirkpatrick. “I look forward to building a strong team in our Oromocto restaurant to bring this great menu and experience to New Brunswick.”
The Chef Inspired Group of Restaurants currently owns and operates two combination Cheese Curds/Habaneros restaurants, as well as several other quick-service restaurants and food trucks. Pratt has more restaurants planned for the near future in Atlantic Canada and his development team is focused on finding good partners to franchise those locations.
