OAKVILLE, ON—Howard Johnson Canada has signed a deal with the Golden Village Inn, as it continues to expand the brand across Canada. The Inn is located at 1439 Lafontaine Road and is situated on the east entrance of Golden, BC, in the Kicking Horse Canyon, nestled between the Rocky and Purcell Mountain ranges. The property is owned and operated by Pavi Khunkhun, and is currently undergoing an extensive renovation program to meet Howard Johnson brand standards, with plans to start operating as a HoJo by November 2013.
The Howard Johnson Hotel Strathmore, AB has opened their new Don Cherry’s Sports Grill, the most westerly location in the Don Cherry’s Sports Grill system.
This marks the opening of the 16th Don Cherry’s as it continues its expansion program across Canada. Don Cherry’s is 100 per cent Canadian-owned and is based in Parry Sound, ON. Chris and Darrel Painter have been expanding the brand through a program which focuses on converting space in hotels and inns across the country.
Moe and Paul Gill, owners and operators of the Strathmore HoJo said, “We are very excited about the opening of our Don Cherry’s Sports Grill. We were looking for something that would complement our HoJo, a concept that was family friendly, had great food, and was recognizable.”
