Hot on the heels of Zellers’ big announcement in Canada, the beloved Canadian retailer from our past will also be bringing its iconic restaurant back to life. However, it won’t be the sit-down joint you remember — it’s more like a Zellers food truck.
“Zellers is mobilizing a fleet of food trucks to greet customers at its first locations opening this spring,” said The Bay in a press release.
The Zellers Diner on wheels will pull into several of its 25 locations across the country and will “serve shoppers with some fan favourites from the fondly remembered Zellers Family Restaurant.”
However, before Zellers food truck hits the road, Canadians are being asked to build the menu.
There are 10 options to choose from — nine of them are from the original menu and one is a new vegetarian option.
All you have to do is weigh in and choose your favourites from the options below.
- Big Z Burger
- Fries and Gravy
- Hot Chicken Sandwich
- Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Onion Rings
- Hot Dog
- Chicken Fingers
- Veggie Burger
Hopefully, you are one of many with the same idea, and your choices will make it to the final menu.
You will only have one week to submit your choices on Zellers’ new official Instagram page, so keep your eyes peeled.
Earlier this month, Zellers Canada announced it will be making a comeback through an online platform and in-person.
The beloved Canadian retailer will be reviving 25 locations across the country – through not standalone stores, these locations would be within select Hudson’s Bay stores.
The new Zellers experience will be between 8,000 – 10,000 sq ft., depending on the location.
Both the Zellers in-store experience and Zellers.ca are planned to launch at the same time. As to when that will come to blossom, we have yet to find out. We have a feeling it’ll be really soon!
There will be four locations in British Columbia, three in Alberta, nine in Ontario, five in Quebec, one in Manitoba and two in Nova Scotia.
This is an exciting chapter in Canadian history, and we truly can’t wait.
