Mary Brown’s Famous Chicken & Taters returning to Red Deer

After about a lengthy absence, Mary Brown’s Famous Chicken & Taters has returned to Red Deer.

After about a lengthy absence, Mary Brown’s Famous Chicken & Taters has returned to Red Deer.

The Canadian fast-food restaurant recently opened a store at 6858 Gaetz Ave., the former premises of Clancy’s Meat Co. Mary Brown’s previously operated at 3701 Gaetz Ave., but closed years ago.

Stefan Abraham, business development consultant with Mary Brown’s, said the chain is known for its fried chicken and signature sandwiches.

“It’s all hand-cut in store,” he said of the chicken, which is also marinated and breaded on site.

“We only keep it for two hours once it’s cooked, and then it’s discarded.”

Mary Brown’s started in Newfoundland in 1969, originally under the name Golden Skillet. It’s since expanded west, with the Red Deer store its 102nd.

The company has set a goal of having 200 outlets in five years, with Alberta figuring prominently in this growth.

Peter Rakovalis, franchise development manager for the company, said eight are slated to open in Alberta this year, bringing the total in this province to 30.

Kam Khurshed, who owns the Red Deer franchise, also operates the Mary Brown’s in St. Albert and Spruce Grove.

Canadian business Greg Roberts has been owned Mary Brown’s since 2007.

The Red Deer store is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
