Nostalgic Zellers restaurant is coming back – in food truck form

With the exciting announcement that the iconic Zellers brand would be making a return as a store-within-a-store inside of Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) locations across Canada, one big question remained: what about the restaurant? 

With many agreeing that a Zellers without its famous onsite restaurant just wouldn’t be the same, the HBC has announced that the famous Zellers Family Restaurant will in fact be making a return; however, they’ll be back as a food truck serving up favourite dishes from the past. 

“Whether you called it The Skillet or Zellers Family Restaurant back in the day, we’re comin’ in hot,” reads a message from Zellers on social media

“From time-honoured classics to brand-new bites, a select menu will be cooked up and dished out of our custom Zellers Diner food trucks for a throwback event this spring!” 

Zellers is currently encouraging the public to vote on Instagram for their top five favourite Zellers Diner dishes to bring back for the food truck, with choices including the hot chicken sandwich, Big Z Burger, poutine, quesadilla, grilled cheese, and chicken fingers. 

The news comes after Zellers announced its first 25 locations to be opening across Canada within Hudson’s Bay stores, with locations in Ontario including Burlington Mall, Cambridge Centre, Erin Mills in Mississauga, and Pen Centre Shopping Plaza in St. Catharines.
