CEO Hadi Chahin said: “For 55 years, Canadians have made Mary Brown’s Chicken their first choice for fresh, delicious hand-cut, hand-breaded fried chicken and taters. We are therefore excited to introduce our legendary fried chicken to the wonderful people of Lisburn.

“What makes Mary Brown’s special is our delicious, handcrafted menu and genuine hospitality. We have been a beloved tradition in Canada for generations, and we can’t wait to share our passion for delicious, locally sourced and made-from-scratch quality food with our new friends in the UK.”
