Great Canadian Entertainment cooks up ‘groundbreaking’ Gordon Ramsay deal

The celebrity chef's brands are headed for British Columbia

Great Canadian Entertainment is serving up a special treat for its guests in British Columbia via a ‘groundbreaking’ partnership with celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay.

The gaming, entertainment and hospitality company operates 25 gaming properties in Canada, consisting of casinos and a number of hotels, restaurants and entertainment facilities.

One of the properties – Hard Rock Casino Vancouver – will be the first to benefit from Great Canadian Entertainment’s deal with Ramsay’s company, with Gordon Ramsay Burger expected to open its doors this fall, followed by Gordon Ramsay Steak at River Rock Casino Resort next year.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Great Canadian Entertainment to bring our dining concepts to the vibrant Canadian dining scene,” said Ramsay.

“Canada has a strong culinary market, and we can’t wait to welcome guests into our new restaurants in the coming months.”

The collaboration marks the introduction of both Gordon Ramsay brands to the Canadian marketplace, while Hard Rock Casino Vancouver is set to earn the honour of welcoming Canada’s first Gordon Ramsay Burger.

Matthew Anfinson, CEO of Great Canadian Entertainment, added: “We are absolutely thrilled to bring Gordon Ramsay’s extraordinary gastronomic vision to our properties.

“This partnership represents a monumental moment for our company as the addition of Gordon Ramsay Burger and Gordon Ramsay Steak in British Columbia will offer our guests an unrivalled dining experience, and we are eager for the opportunity to introduce additional Gordon Ramsay brands at other Great Canadian destinations in Canada.”

Elsewhere, Great Canadian Entertainment recently unveiled its latest property – Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto – equipped with 4,800 slot machines and 145 table games.

The firm later added a poker room to its Vegas-style casino ‘to cater to the market’s vibrant poker community’.
