We admit it: at Chef Inspired, it’s always the season for food. But the holidays are here and with them, opportunities to make delicious memories with your loved ones. We’d love to be part of your celebrations this holiday season.
Keeping you fuelled: December specials
Shopping, gift-wrapping, cooking, tree-trimming, mirth-making… it’s enough to wear a person down. But fear not! Chef Inspired can keep you going, right through the new year.
The Cheese Curds headliner this month: a festive fan favourite, Turkey Dinner Poutine. We roast our turkey in house, make our own gravy and dressing, and hand chip our PEI fries. At Habaneros, we’re featuring our Halifamous Donair Tacos - so popular, they might make our regular menu one day! As always, we make our own donair meat and sweet garlic sauce in house, from scratch. Come on, now, you have to keep your energy up.
Office potluck problem solved
Every office has the person with zero kitchen skills who stresses and stresses before sheepishly bringing a couple bags of chips. It also has the hero who spends far too many precious December hours making a slow-cooker miracle.
This year, everyone can enjoy the office potluck. Our catering options run from traditional fare to comfort food… to a more elegant menu if that’s your style. The food is Chef Inspired, we take care of the dishes, and it’s more affordable than you might think. Call 902-446-3095, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our catering webpage for more details.
Gift cards to solve every gift-giving quandary
The kids’ bus driver. Your hair stylist. Your dental hygienist. The office mailroom clerk. Can you think of anyone who wouldn’t appreciate a gift of fresh, delicious meals? Neither can we. Our gift cards are available at any one of our locations. Whether they’d prefer the indulgence of Cheese Curds’ burgers and poutines or the healthy oasis of Habaneros’ fresh salads and burritos amid the holiday gluttony, we’ll take good care of them.
2017 has been great to us
We say this every year, but 2017 really was generous with Chef Inspired. Here are a few highlights we’re particularly proud to look back on:
We opened franchise locations in a number of Atlantic Canada communities, including our newest, the Cheese Curds and Habaneros franchise in Truro/Millbrook, NS. To make sure our new neighbours noticed us, we sent our Cheese Curds food truck a week before we opened, to give away 500 free poutines… and suffice it to say, they noticed us! We were humbled by the enthusiastic and warm welcome from the Hub of Nova Scotia, and already feel part of our new community. To the good people of Truro/Millbrook, as well as our new neighbours in Bedford and Oromocto, Thank you!
We spent a year serving customers we love with food we’re proud to prepare fresh every day - and if you’ve worked outside your home, you know what a gift it is to work with people you value and respect. We celebrate our standout employees every month - if you’d like to know more about them, check out our People of Chef Inspired blog.

Looking into the new year
From where we’re standing, 2018 is looking every bit as delicious as 2017. Two big things we’ve got simmering.
Our first stand-alone Habaneros franchise will open in Sydney, NS early in 2018. We couldn’t be happier about bringing Chef Inspired to Cape Breton. Construction begins in January and we're hoping to have a firm opening date soon. If you haven't yet, be sure to follow our Sydney Facebook location page for current updates.
After many requests for online and order-ahead service, we’ll be kicking off the new year with ChowNow at all our Cheese Curds and Habaneros locations. You’ll be able to order from the ChowNow mobile app, online from your computer, or from your Facebook account. You asked and we listened… that’s why our business works. Any time you have other ideas that could help us serve you better, please let us know.
Holiday Hours & Closures
Our employees are our greatest asset in serving you, so we make sure they have time with family and friends over the holidays. Accordingly, we’ll be closed on December 24, 25 and 26 at all locations except Truro, which will be closed on Christmas Day only. Please check your favourite location for New Year’s Day hours and closures.
Finally, thank you for your continued support of our family business and restaurants. From all of us at Chef Inspired® Group of Restaurants, we wish you and yours a safe and joyous season, and happy, healthy 2018.
