“This is another important step in growing our Flatiron brand in Western Canada,” says Adam Drybrough, a partner with Lucid. “Chinook Centre is an important location for us. This Flatiron restaurant, located on two floors on the northeast corner of the mall fronting directly onto Macleod Trail, will become our flagship location. High traffic, high visibility and customer access from both the street and mall levels make it a desirable location for showcasing our premium casual restaurant concept.”
The 9,500-square-feet space will seat 250 and is expected to employ about 200 full and part-time staff. The food will be created by Flatiron’s executive chef Michelle Blanchett.
This opening is only the beginning, as Lucid Group is keen to grow its Flatiron and Kayne restaurant brands in Western Canada. Plans for a new gourmet coffee concept are also expected to be introduced shortly.
