It All Started... in Sudbury, Ontario, in 1980 when we opened our first Casey's restaurant. Since then, we have grown to over 160 restaurants that operate under five brand names across Canada franchised by Prime Restaurants Inc. including Casey's (Est. 1980), Pat & Mario's (Est. 1982), East Side Mario's (Est. 1987), Prime Pubs (Est. 1996), the Bier Markt (Est. 1998), and Prime Pubs of America (Est. 2006).
Prime's brands employ more than 8,000 Canadians in full and part time positions and a Prime Restaurant is an integral part of the communities in which they operate, from fund raising and the sponsorship of community events, to Prime’s long-standing corporate support of Camp Oochigeas, which provides kids living with cancer the opportunity to enjoy a unique summer camp experience.
