MB Chicken Offers Fresh New Franchise Opportunity


Mary Brown's (MB) Chicken, the premier Canadian-owned quick serve chicken restaurant brand, has launched in the UK market, with plans for rapid expansion with a select group of sophisticated franchise partners.
Founded in 1969, MB Chicken currently has around 300 locations across Canada and is growing both within North America and in international markets. As one of Canada’s fastest growing franchises, it is renowned for its Signature Chicken, Taters, Big Mary® chicken sandwich, and its popular Tater Poutine, which combines hand-cut, breaded and fried potatoes smothered in gravy and cheese.
The company prides itself on its made-fresh methodology, including hand cutting and hand breading its Signature Chicken & Taters from locally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients. It has maintained the same traditional breading and seasoning recipe since 1969 using its own proprietary cooking equipment with patented technology, sealing in the chicken's natural flavours resulting in a less oily, juicy, tender, and incredibly delicious product.
MB Chicken’s first-ever store in the UK, located in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, opens on 21st February, with subsequent stores scheduled to open in 2024, including sites in Belfast, Leicester and London.
MB Chicken is now welcoming applications from sophisticated franchisees and Master Franchisees to expand the brand across the UK and Ireland and continental Europe.  Ideal partners are successful Multi Unit or Multi Brand Operators with an experienced team and sufficient capital to rapidly develop an exclusive territory.
CEO of MBI Brands, Hadi Chahin, expressed his excitement about the UK launch: “For over 54 years Canadians have made Mary Brown’s Chicken their first choice for fresh, hand-cut, hand breaded delicious fried chicken and Taters. We are therefore excited to introduce our legendary concept to the wonderful people of the UK. What makes MB Chicken special is our delicious, handcrafted menu and genuine hospitality; we have been a beloved tradition in Canada for generations, and we can't wait to share our passion for delicious, made-from-scratch quality food with new friends in the UK.”
Dylan Powell, VP International Development, said: “Backed by our experienced operational and franchise team, new franchisees have a fantastic opportunity to join us on our quest to reach 300 branches in the UK. We are 100% focused on identifying the right partners who share our values and can work as a team.”

MB Chicken offers a comprehensive franchise package including extensive training, store fit out, national marketing and tailored operational support to get new stores and franchise partners off to a great start.
