30 Aug 2019 - Qdoba Mexican Eats is continuing its expansion across Canada through an agreement with multi-unit operator, Burgess Enterprise. The five-unit deal will bring locations to Northern Ontario with the first opening early next year in Sault Ste. Marie.

"As co-founder and operator of the Ontario-based Wacky Wings concept, I understand the value in providing an elevated dining experience," Craig Burgess, CEO of Burgess Enterprise, said in a company press release. "When we looked to grow our portfolio with another restaurant, we were immediately impressed with Qdoba — everything from the delicious food to the experienced leadership team. We're excited to bring the Qdoba brand to fans across Northern Ontario."

Burgess Enterprise will also open several locations over the next few years in Sudbury, Timmins, North Bay and Thunder Bay.

"In Wacky Wings, Burgess Enterprise has done an incredible job creating and incubating a crowd-pleasing restaurant brand from scratch," Qdoba CEO Keith Guilbault said in the release. "Canada is a growing market for us, and we're excited to have Craig and his team on board, bringing the Qdoba brand to even more area guests."

Qdoba has more than 700 restaurants in the United States and in Canada.
