Toronto, September 14, 2015 – The ever-growing Smoke’s Empire is hosting the official grand opening of Toronto’s First & Original Smoke’s Weinerie! Taking a cue from the incredible success of Smoke’s Poutinerie, a restaurant focused solely on Poutine, Smoke’s Weinerie will serve Weiners exclusively. Smoke’s Weinerie will be located right beside Smoke’s Poutinerie at its new Toronto location at 457 Spadina Avenue. The grand opening event will be held on Tuesday September 22, 2015 and the restaurant will be offering $ 2.00 Snack Size Poutine and $ 2.00 Naked Premium Weiners all day long. The restaurant welcomes both new customers and longtime fans of Smoke’s Poutinerie to visit their newest location and enjoy the best of both worlds – Poutine and Weiners!

It’s not just your ball park frank. Smoke’s Weinerie takes the ever-popular hot dog concept to a whole new level with dozens of unique offerings, endless combinations and a hearty helping of quintessential Smoke’s Weinerie Brand flavours. Smoke is constantly working on developing a variety of next level Weiners including the Bacon Mushroom Melt, Nacho Nacho and the Chili-Cheez! By offering up Weiners loaded with toppings at an amazing price point, customers visiting Smoke’s Weinerie will be totally impressed by the incredible value they’re receiving. Options in the bun are the Traditional Montreal Steamie, a Quarter-Pound All Beef Weiner and a Half-Pound All Beef 12” Classic all smothered in an endless amount of gourmet toppings.

“We’re doing to Weiners what we did to Poutine. We’ve poured our heart and soul into research and development. Our test kitchen has been overflowing with Weiners and we’ve certainly had our hands full.” says Ryan Smolkin, Founder of Smoke’s Poutinerie and Smoke’s Weinerie. “We have created something so unique, so truly amazing, we cannot wait to share it with the World,” adds Smolkin.

With design inspired by industrial hot dog carts and natural street feel, the store experience promises to be entertaining, with tongue firmly planted in cheek. “Our Weiner’s are Handled with Care” and “Grab Your Weiner Here”, are just a few of the colourful phrases adorning the interior walls. The resulting concept is this one of a kind, new brand – Smoke’s Weinerie!

Franchise Owner & Operator, Duc Goi is extremely excited to offer up amazing service and products to his customers. “Much like Ryan, I believe whole heartedly in Smoke “The Man, The Myth, The Legend” and through my devotion I will stop at nothing to support Smoke in achieving his dreams of GLOBAL DOMINATION” says Goi.
