THE UNIQUENESS OF EARLS

Unchaining The Chain

March 9, 2020

When Earls started over 35 years ago, it offered something that – at the time – was unique to the world of hospitality. During the 80s, the Canadian restaurant scene was mostly made up of either very casual coffee shops and diner-style spots or elevated fine dining establishments. So when Earls opened up its doors offering a place for people to enjoy a burger and beer with friends in an unfussy environment, the concept was an immediate hit; lineups went around the block. It was offering something unique, and something people craved.

Over the years, Earls continued to expand to different cities, featuring the same worldly-inspired food and drinks menus that people grew to love, and creating a new restaurant category lovingly known as ‘premium casual dining’. In time, other concepts popped up that followed the same dining approach that Earls pioneered.

As we kept growing, the neighbourhoods we started to call home had a uniqueness about them that was hard to ignore. Each city had their own sense of style, character, charm and taste. And since the identity of our very first Earls location was shaped by our neighbours-turned-regulars (many know the famous parrots because of this–more on that here), we saw this as an opportunity to keep the spirit of our roots alive within each of our restaurants, leading us to who we are today: a group of independently-compelling restaurants that’s unchaining the chain.

Now, no two Earls menus are the same, even in the cities that have multiple Earls locations. While we may offer some of our most-loved dishes everywhere (let’s be honest, there’s no way we couldn’t serve the Dynamite Rolls at every location), there are many dishes and drinks that are unique to that specific restaurant. Our beer lists are distinctly different at each Earls, featuring some of our favourited craft labels from local breweries. In every of our newer locations and those that have undergone huge makeovers feature interior designs that reflect the vibe and energy of the city each Earls is in, and the art on the walls proudly showcase the work of local visual artists.

To us, our neighbours are our family. And as a family-run company, we cherish the uniqueness of these relationships and love the opportunity to create a catered experience for the communities we’re in. We can’t wait to meet new neighbourhoods and create a unique space for them, too.
