Iconic Winnipeg Restaurant Chain A Huge Success in Norway House
Now in its second year of operation, a Salisbury House restaurant in Norway House has become a great success story. The Winnipeg-based restaurant chain, affectionately known as “The Sals”, has been serving quality food to Winnipeggers since 1931. In May 2015, the firm ventured out of Winnipeg for the first time, opening a new 80 to 100 seat restaurant in Norway House.
The restaurant is a profit-sharing economic partnership between Salisbury House Restaurants and the Chief and Council of Norway House Cree Nation (NHCN). The restaurant employs about 40 people from the community and Norway House Cree Nation Chief Ron Evans says the partnership is helping to build understanding and friendship and improve living conditions on NHCN.
