Houston Avenue Bar & Grill in Toronto to close its doors after 10 years


TORONTO – MAY 1, 2017

After 10 successful years, Houston Avenue Bar & Grill located at 33 Yonge Street in Toronto’s financial district is closing its doors. The decision to close comes from a shift in the Toronto market, particularly the financial district.

Houston Canada is actively looking for new locations that will offer the same success its brand garnished throughout the years. “We had to decide whether to invest in our current location and upgrade our concept or look for a new location and follow the evolving market,” explains Richard Carrer, Vice-President of Business Development for the group. “We felt it was in the best interest of the brand moving forward to find a location that will better exploit its potential and would like to thank all our loyal customers over the last years.”

The group is looking further than just one location as it makes its push into the area. “Toronto is the food capital of Canada and we feel several of our concepts have the right fit,” adds Mr. Carrer emphasizing the demand in the Toronto market for chains that focus on quality ingredients backed by a renowned executive Chef, Joe Mercuri.
