In the spring of 1976, the Chances R Restaurant was established and located in Shopper’s City mall on the corner of Baseline and Woodroffe. Amongst the original partners was Brian Kilrea, Hall of Fame coach of the Ottawa 67’s. The following year saw Nick Bouris, a graduate from the Hotel and Restaurant faculty of Niagara College, join the management team and within a few years became the restaurant’s only working partner.
In 1998, Brian and Nick became sole owners of the Chances R and immediately began drawing up the blueprints for a new restaurant at the future College Square. In March 2003, the newly designed Chances R opened its doors with unbound enthusiasm and some new additions to the partnership team, Mike Bouris and Matt Moore. Since then, the restaurant has received outstanding accolades and has served over a million customers. The Consumers Choice Award for “Ottawa’s Best Family Restaurant” had been awarded to Chances R for the past seven consecutive years.
