Pair of Kamloops chain restaurants to cease operations

Milestones and Montana’s owned by same group behind The Keg and Eastside Mario’s, each of which closed Kamloops locations in recent years

Two Kamloops restaurants — both operated by the same company behind other shuttered local eateries — will close their doors for good this month.

Milestones last day of operation is May 10 and Montana’s is closing on May 26.

Both restaurants are operated by Recipe Unlimited, a Toronto-based company responsible for brands including The Keg, Eastside Mario’s and Swiss Chalet, among others.

After decades in the city, The Keg ceased operations in August 2016. Eastside Mario’s in Aberdeen Mall closed suddenly in February 2013.

Swiss Chalet opened its Kamloops location in 2013. The restaurant’s manager said she is optimistic about the future of the business.

“We are totally fine,” Lindsay Mervyn told KTW. “We have no issues whatsoever. We are not closing any time soon.”

Recipe Unlimited is also affiliated with Original Joe’s, which opened a Kamloops location in 2012. Original Joe’s, though, is owned by a separate company.

Repeated calls by KTW to Recipe Unlimited have not been returned.

Milestones employs more than 40 workers at its Kamloops location while Montana’s has a staff of about 30.
