We’ve all been there: that lazy Sunday afternoon and the only thing that’s on your mind is a big hearty bacon and egg breakfast.
At Ricky’s All-Day Grill, an 82-seat restaurant that will stand next to Whole Foods at SOLO District, the breakfast is huge, hearty, and available all day. The same goes for all the warm, filling comfort food that Ricky’s has become synonymous for more than 50 years.
“Ricky’s has a long history in B.C., and that’s a testament to how well the chain taps into what local customers want,” says Jim Bosa, founder of Appia Development.
“The menu is all about comfort food that appeals to a diverse population, much like our community. We’re happy to welcome Ricky’s warmth and quality of service to SOLO District.”
Ricky’s took root in B.C. in 1962 as a humble pancake house. As it grew in popularity, so did the menu. Soon enough, customers were ordering all-day breakfasts, weekend brunches, and the staples of lunch and dinner—Angus beef steaks, ribs, pastas, salads and seafood for adults, and a comprehensive kids’ menu and “club” activities for young ones during family events.”
Ricky’s CEO and owner Frank Di Benedetto says the restaurants are a destination point, a meeting place for families and big groups of friends.
“Ricky’s All-Day Grill is a place where friends and neighbours meet, business people lunch, and families come for the food and service they know and appreciate,” he says.
Ricky’s franchises include 70 restaurants in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Yukon.
