CBJ – Cara Operations is expanding its already large network of Canadian restaurant chains with the all-cash acquisition of New York Fries.

Cara owns Harvey’s, Swiss Chalet, Kelsey’s, East Side Mario’s, Montana’s, Milestones, Prime Pubs (Fionn MacCool’s, The Merchant), Casey’s, Bier Markt and Landing Restaurants, including Hunter’s Landing, Harper’s Landing and Williams Landing.

The addition of NY Fries will help diversify Cara’s portfolio of stores into shopping centers, where Cara’s existing brands have limited presence, according to Cara CEO Bill Gregson, who works out of Cara’s corporate head office in Vaughan, just north of Toronto.
