Halifax, NS. January 9, 2023 / HARVEST Clean Eats announces additional Maritime Canada expansion with new stores in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and its first location on Prince Edward Island as the fast-casual brand partners with noteworthy restaurateur Irwin Dawson. Dawson plans to open four HARVEST locations this year. The new stores will see HARVEST have an expanded presence in well-trafficked areas of the Maritimes, including a second store in Moncton and the first in Charlottetown. “We are thrilled about our expansion throughout the Maritime provinces. Providing more people with healthy food that is convenient and accessible is our mission” says Co-Founder & CEO, Connor Stoilov.

Irwin Dawson has been in the franchise restaurant business since 1996. Dawson is responsible for bringing the well-known Blaze Pizza franchise to the Atlantic provinces and is a proud owner of more than 22 Subway franchises. As a leader in the franchise industry, Dawson sees the potential for the HARVEST brand to grow throughout Canada. Dawson’s ambitious plans for HARVEST locations in 2023 are a significant feather in the cap for the HARVEST Clean Eats brand. “This is the type of validation we have worked so hard to receive. A veteran in the franchise space has chosen HARVEST - It is a real pinch-me moment and a testament to our hard work”, says Stoilov. The partnership with Dawson marks a strategic feat in the expansion of the HARVEST Clean Eats franchise system.

Dawson’s HARVEST franchises are set to open for business in the coming months. The downtown Charlottetown HARVEST will reside at 101 Grafton Street. In Moncton, you’ll find HARVEST in the up-and-coming Granite Centre at 10 Granite Drive. Finally, Dawson will be joining HARVEST and Subway in his new building on the corner of 138 South Albion Street and Robert Angus Drive in Amherst, NS.
