Mary Brown's Chicken Franchise US

Canada’s Premier Chicken Quick-Serve Success Story is in the US!

Mary Brown’s Chicken, the largest Canadian quick serve chicken restaurant and fastest-growing chicken brand in Canada, is recruiting a select group of US partners to be part of the next chapter of our success story.

With 17 consecutive years of same store sales growth and exponential location expansion, our franchise partners benefit from a brand that is proven in Canada and geared for global success.

Our best-in-class menu, including Signature Chicken, Taters (breaded, deep fried potato wedges), Big Mary® Sandwich and Tater Poutine™, is handcrafted in small batches in each store, using methodologies that have been honed for 50+ years and premium ingredients. Our custom-designed proprietary cookers use a higher cooking temperature to deliver juicy, never greasy results, mouth-watering flavour and consistently light golden appearance that no other chicken concepts can duplicate.

At Mary Brown’s, you join a team of passionate industry professionals who provide leadership and support across all functional areas, including a complete and comprehensive training program with three weeks in a live location, comprehensive pre and post opening on the ground support and a 24/7 online training portal for Franchisees and staff.
