Chester's Flies North

HOBBEMA, Alberta -- Chester’s newest location at Cree Convenience Store, located on the Samson Native American reservation here, celebrated its grand opening Friday.

The Samson Cree Nation is the largest group of First Nations in Canada, with more than 200,000 members and 135 registered bands. Named after Chief Samson (Kanatakasu), Samson Cree Nation members are ancestors of the Plains Cree who were part of the Great Cree Nation that traditionally used, occupied and controlled the Western Plains.

"We are both extremely excited about bring Chester’s to the Cree Convenience Store and the Samson Cree Nation," Derek and Cody Bruno, owners of Cree Convenience, said in a statement. "Chester’s great taste and marketing support are welcome additions to our store, and we are sure that this program will do well here."

Chester’s signature menu options, including fried bone-in chicken, chicken tenders, potato wedges and biscuits, will be served at the Cree Convenience Store. The newest Chester’s location will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will offer customers dine-in, carry-out, and catering options.

"Derek and Cody are visionaries who have done tremendous things for their community," said Richard Davis, Chester’s vice president of systems management. “It's great to have such civic-minded people to work with bringing Chester's and new business to the Cree Nation."
