MONTREAL — 3 Brewers Canada is closing four of its Greater Toronto Area (GTA) restaurants on December 31.
These locations — at Adelaide, Richmond Hill, Mavis and Liberty Village — are the only restaurants affected and are part of a strategic repositioning plan for the Ontario market. The remaining GTA locations — on Yonge Street and in Oakville — will continue to operate. 3 Brewers Canada is also about to enter a new phase, during which new projects will soon be announced.
“Ten years ago, we entered the strategic market of Ontario and, over that time, experienced some great victories, notably our Yonge and Oakville restaurants, but also some challenges,” says Laurens Defour, CEO, 3 Brewers Canada. “This is a difficult decision, but we’ve concluded that we need to close some sites in order to support the evolution of our business.”
During this period of change, the leadership of 3 Brewers Canada personally met with employees affected by the closures. Information desks were set up in each of the affected restaurants and the company is providing professional coaching, along with psychological support and help in finding a job. Wherever possible, reassignments to vacant positions in the 3 Brewers network are also planned.
