Smoke’s Poutinerie Invading Mississauga

Published January 10, 2015 at 1:52 am


Ryan Smolkin the CEO and Founder of Smoke’s Poutinerie was on TV last night and revealed his plans for global domination, well, at least his plans for Mississauga.

Port Credit locals and anyone who’s driven through the area may have noticed that there’s been a sign up for a new Smoke’s Poutinerie to open for what seems like eons.

Thankfully the wait won’t be much longer as Smolkin exclusively revealed to that January 26, 2015 is the official grand opening for Mississauga’s first Smoke’s Poutinerie, but not the only one.

The City Centre area will be graced with a second location in 2015 sometime – this is definitely ‘Smolkin’ news for the Sheridan College crowd.

Smolkin repped the  i♥sauga tee, as seen below, and discussed ideas on a Mississauga themed poutine, perhaps one called The Hurricane Hazel McCallion poutine. I wonder what would be on it?

The World Poutine Eating Championship is the largest eating competition in Canada and it is a yearly event which draws hard core poutine lovers to gorge out on the Canadian delicacy for a chance to win some money. Last year’s champ walked away with $3000 for eating nearly 15 lbs of poutine in 10 minutes.

Smolkin has thoughts on hosting a poutine eating competition qualifier in Port Credit, and if he does he can count me in. Silky and rich gravy, loads of Quebec cheese curds, and hand-cut fries – that’s heaven in my mouth!

The very first Smoke’s Poutinerie opened up in 2009, and since then they have literally exploded with  100 locations worldwide with the first American location in Berkeley, California.
