Smoke’s Poutinerie Launches National EDU-TAINMENT Program


TORONTO (April 5, 2019) – Smoke’s Poutinerie announces the official launch of their national franchising EDU-TAINMENT Program benefiting Canadian post-secondary graduates by providing them with an opportunity to jump aboard the Smoke’s Poutinerie Rock ‘n’ Roll Gravy Train with a 50% discount off all franchise related fees.* 

This original franchising initiative is the brain-child of Ryan Smolkin, Founder and CEO of Smoke’s Poutinerie who remembers the challenges faced when starting out as a serial entrepreneur. “I’m excited to inspire young, ambitious students with aspirations to own their own businesses. I can’t wait to bring this unique partnership coast-to-coast. My main goal is to pave the way for students who are in the same position I was when I was finding my way in university,” said Ryan. “I am totally stoked to be the first in this industry to support students in their journey toward entrepreneurship – I really want to give them opportunities I didn’t have.”

In addition, any post-secondary student attending one of Ryan Smolkin’s presentations during his ongoing Canada-wide speaking tour can enter an exclusive competition (1 entry/year) for a 100% discount off all franchise related fees.*
