A cookbook, how about that? As the co-founders of Earls, we’re delighted to be able to share all of these wonderful recipes with you. And we’re happy to see so many stories from our ﬁrst thirty-four years, as well as surprised that they’re so interest-ing . . . we thought we ran a pretty tight ship!
It’s clear how lucky we’ve been to be surrounded by so many remarkable people along the way, so if we regret anything, it’s that between these covers there was room to feature so few. Every Earls is an intricate symphony of cleaners, dishwashers, bussers, cooks, hosts, servers, bartenders, chefs, managers and more, and the customer experience is entirely dependent on each of them. We have around seven thousand employees, and it’s possible that as many as a hundred thousand people have worked with us since we started in 1982. Please know that if you are one of those people, your contribution is very much appreciated.
And then there’s this book. Our thanks to the team behind it for the detailed recipes, the beautiful pictures, and the words, however fantastical. It’s been a slice, and we think that’s well reflected. Now, let’s eat.
-Bus and Stan Fuller

Some 30 years ago, Leroy (Bus) Earl Fuller and his son Stanley Earl Fuller had a simple idea: to create a laid-back burger and beer joint. A lot has changed since the early days, but one thing has remained the same — Earls is still a family business driven by people who are genuinely passionate about great food and drinks.
The tradition of Earls is centered on globally inspired dishes that make people want to come back for more. Fresh, made from scratch, locally-sourced ingredients, and now, innovative chef-led experiments that are getting the industry’s attention through the Earls Chef Collective.
You can now create and enjoy all of your favourite Earls dishes from the comfort of your own home. ‘Earls The Cookbook’ will be available at all Earls locations in mid-May. You can also find it in-stores and online at Chapters, Indigo, Amazon and other select retailers.
