Smoke’s Poutinerie is the World’s Largest & Original Poutinerie, focusing exclusively on Poutine (Loaded Fries).
Fresh Hand-Cut Fries, Squeaky Cheese Curds & Smoke’s Signature Gravy complete this Iconic Canadian dish, along with unlimited combinations of gourmet toppings like double-smoked bacon, flat iron steak, grilled chicken, caramelized onions, sautéed peppers and many more mouthwatering options.
Ryan Smolkin, Founder of Smoke’s Poutinerie launched the first location in Toronto in 2009 and has since opened more than 100 locations across Canada in six short years, well on the way to GLOBAL DOMINATION!
The Smoke’s Poutinerie Brand features Canadiana, lumberjack plaid and glam rock, bringing you back to the nostalgia of the 80’s. Guests feel the excitement and power of the Brand from the moment they arrive and leave with an absolutely unforgettable experience.
The Franchise is now focused on expansion into the U.S., Sports & Entertainment and International Markets. The first official U.S. location recently opened in Berkeley, California where over 1300 customers were lined up around the block. The U.S. launch also proved to be extremely successful within the Smoke’s Poutinerie social media channels where 3100 people raved about the opening, 1 million impressions were made on Twitter and over 3000 fans engaged directly with the Brand – all achieved in one day! Next up, Las Vegas, Hollywood, New York, Boston and numerous other cities and states revved up to jump on the Gravy Train.
Amid the rapid expansion of traditional Franchise units, Smoke’s Poutinerie has also been busy building a thriving Sports & Entertainment division. “That’s a huge focus for us,” says Smolkin, explaining that the Brand’s unique Poutine concoctions are now being devoured by hungry sports fans who have made Smoke’s Poutinerie the #1 Food Vendor in a number of top stadiums in Canada. Smolkin is working diligently on expanding into the U.S. Non-Traditional Market with units ranging from Arenas & Stadiums to University Campuses, Amusement Parks and even Airports. Smolkin believes that in order to maintain the success it is important to select Franchisees with a good personality, positive energy, common sense and a strong work ethic. The Franchisee needs to be a forward thinking Entrepreneur who is ready to “live and breathe our Brand and Culture”.
Territories are available throughout the U.S. , with little to no direct competition exclusively selling Poutine. It is the Largest & Original Franchise of its kind in the World and will continue to implement fresh concepts and ideas to remain the leader in today’s market. Franchisees can expect guidance on negotiating leases, intense training, weekly communication and help with driving labor and food costs.
The most rewarding part of Smolkin’s experience is seeing dedicated owners run successful Smoke’s Poutinerie locations which lead to further opportunities for expansion. With a reputation for being Fastest Growing Company in Canada and Canadian Company of the Year by Food Service & Hospitality Magazine, Ryan Smolkin is ready for the next step, to open multi-units and area development around the World.
