Sherwood “Parked” but perhaps not forever…
Founded in 1976, the Sawmill, one of Edmonton’s iconic steak house and lounge establishments announced May 2020 that the Sherwood Park location has opted not to renew their franchise agreement with the Sawmill Prime Rib & Steak House. The Sherwood Park ownership having major interests in another hospitality brand became a strong business influence and during this time of change made best sense for all involved.
Richard and Vickie Gauthier have been model partners and the decision did not come easily. The partnership has and will remain very personal and the Gauthier’s will always continue to be close as colleagues and equally friends.
The Sawmill Prime Rib & Steak House celebrates its 44th year in business this November, a business sensation by any stretch and more so for one that has achieved its legacy in a competitive food and beverage industry. Sherwood Park, including Strathcona County, has been an exceptional marketplace and the brand has not ruled out a more modern version of the Sawmill brand within the neighborhood in the future.
Confidently supporting Alberta through its patriotic and unwavering support of Alberta and Canada Beef, and having faith in the wisdom and lessons to live by quotation credited to Abraham Lincoln and Peter Drucker, “the best way to predict the future is to create it” The Sawmill Restaurant Group is all that… and all in. The brand looks forward to serving you in the near future at any of their 10 locations.
