Canada's 'Smoke's Poutinerie' expands again – this time to Philadelphia

StaffRebel Columnist

It may always be sunny in Philadelphia, but now it'll be a bit cheesier too.

Canada's own Smoke's Poutinerie' is expanding again. The popular poutine franchise (with over 30 types of poutine) has already penetrated most of Canada and parts of the US including Las Vegas, Hollywood, Florida and Arizona.

The expansion has been very effective so far.

According to Biz Journals, this is part of the company's “global domination tour.” The goal is, in five years time, to open 1,300 stores around the world and 800 in the United States.

The team is looking over retail spaces and is focusing on areas near colleges and universities throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.

There's no word on when the first European store will open, but this author can tell you from past experience, Smoke's is welcome there.

This sticker was found in Frankfurt airport in 2014.

The hype is real.

I never heard of poutine until about the mid nineties….growing up in Edmonton we called it “chips and gravy”….

Glad to see a Canadian company do well…free market capitalism and Canadian culture and all that.
Still got a huge problem with Bill 101, et al…not to mention ALL those transfer payments to Quebec.
As for pronouncing ‘poutinerie’…this YouTube pronunciation is kind of – weird…but then again I’ve never heard it pronounced, just poutine…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEtDn_eT5aA
BILL ELDER; Are you suggesting ’Smoke’s Poutinerie’ is just another Cloward/Piven strategy being used to bring down the West by One Worlders?

Poutine may be a ‘cardiac bomb’ and ‘artery bung’ if you ate one once a day. Most people don’t. If you have never enjoyed that which is wonderful, cheesy poutine, you have never lived. Comfort food like no other. Just as, ‘every person needs to be their own LCBO , LCBA, or B’, every person must be their own PCB, (poutine control board). Daily consumption is not advised obviously. Poutine is one of the best things to come out of Quebec, that and their street hotdogs on steamed buns with grated cabbage, (if they still have them).

I am excited to see this Canadian company go global. Yeah poutine!

Bill, I could not say it any better.

I’ll never understand why garbage like this ever becomes popular, except maybe people are oblivious to the sludge they shovel into themselves. Aside from looking like a drunken Habs fan vomited onto a plate, this stuff is a cardiac bomb, an artery bung of the first order – sure let the Yanks have as big a heart and cancer problem as Quebec. Hope they saturate Calif. and Obama care goes broke keeping up to the fall out.
