Peterborough is about to have a second Loaded Pierogi restaurant franchise, with a new location opening at 89 Hunter Street in East City on Saturday (May 20).
Established in Ontario in 2014 and owned by Bryan Burke and Irina Tirtirau, Loaded Pierogi is a chain of 15 quick service restaurants across Canada that began by selling a small variety of gourmet variations of the quintessential Polish pierogi and has since expanded with greens and grains bowls, French tacos, poutines, and mac and cheese dishes.
The chain plans to have over 20 stores across Canada by the fall and intends to double that within the next three years.
The new East City restaurant, which will offer dine-in, take-out, delivery, and catering options, is located beside the Tim Hortons on Hunter Street East in the former location of Reggie’s Hot Grill, which closed in 2021.
A sign announcing the coming Loaded Pierogi restaurant has been in the building’s window since 2022. The first Loaded Pierogi location opened at 1135 Lansdowne Street West last November.
“We’re proud to have put so much of our heart into planning this grand opening and are committed to upholding the flavour, quality, value, and exceptional service that each and every store in this franchise delivers,” says Paridh Thakkar, one of the franchise’s five owners, in a media release.
Thakkar says the restaurant will be offering some grand opening specials on Saturday, including buy-one-get-one-free on any signature bowls, 50 per cent off all kid’s meals, and an in-store branded merchandise giveaway.
“We are thrilled with the roster of talented staff that we have on our team and it’s incredible to see that they are just as passionate about this brand as I am,” Thakkar adds.
