The restaurant is the second new De Dutch location to open this year and the chain’s first new restaurant to open in Vancouver in 15 years.
Sales for the De Dutch system have grown in B.C. since the franchise was founded in 1975 and, even with the economic challenges of the past year, current franchisees are optimistic of solid growth in the future leading to their increased investment in the franchise. The next, new De Dutch restaurant to enter the system will be located in Columbia Square in New Westminster, B.C. It is scheduled to open next month by new De Dutch franchisees, Marie and Tandrea Jang.
The 35-year-old De Dutch chain has 19 locations in B.C.’s Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Fraser Valley, the Okanagan Valley and Cariboo. While offering dinner at its Strawberry Hill location, De Dutch Pannekoek House specializes in breakfast, brunch and lunch, giving customers a unique blend of European ethnicity in its menu items.
