P.E.I. businesses that have made the expansion into Halifax.
Murphy Hospitality Group opened The Barrington Steakhouse and Oyster Bar last year after having success with The Gahan House on the Halifax waterfront during the past three years. The company’s latest ventures are Grounded Coffee Bar, which is located next to the Gahan House, as well as Two Men and a Truck moving franchise.
Cows Ice Cream has been located on the Halifax waterfront for more than 15 years. With the location reliably being one of its busiest venues in the summer, the company opened a new kiosk on the waterfront earlier this summer.
P.E.I. entrepreneur Dave Hyndman opened his Dave’s Lobster kiosk on the waterfront three years ago after finding success in Charlottetown the year before. He has also opened a new kiosk this year called DeepSea Donuts, a concept he hopes to eventually bring back to P.E.I.
How Bazaar, which has six locations throughout P.E.I., opened its first store outside of the province earlier this spring on Barrington Street.
Boom Burger, which specializes in fast and fresh dining, opened its Bedford location in the Halifax Regional Municipality just over three years ago. The restaurant began in 2011 on the North River causeway and remains popular.
While D.P. Murphy Inc. may be more well-known to Islanders through its numerous Wendy’s and Tim Horton’s locations in P.E.I., the company also operates the Future Inns Halifax Hotel & Conference Centre.
