Muggn'z Family Restaurant Ltd

412-6655 178 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5T 4J5

This grill in Edmonton’s Callingwood neighbourhood prides itself on fresh delicious food for the whole family. They’ve got a complete kids menu with all the staples: chicken bits, a hot dog and fries or lasagna with garlic toast. But my personal favourite option? Good ol’ Kraft dinner! Sure, you could make it yourself at home. But isn’t that the part you want to avoid? Let someone else do the work!

It’s well known that businesses often disappear as quickly as they pop up. Seventy per cent of new restaurants that make it past the one-year mark close their doors before making it to five years. Many start-up businesses face similar odds. But, in Edmonton, there are the exceptions – shops and enterprises that have stood the test of time. [Image credit:iStock.com/wsfurian]
