Grinner's Food Systems, Limited is a Canadian company that franchises two restaurant chains, Greco Pizza and Captain Submarine in Eastern Canada. It is based in Truro, Nova Scotia. The company is owned by Trucorp Investments Incorporated of Dieppe, New Brunswick.
Trucorp also owns Bonte Foods Limited, Frank and Gino's Restaurant, and Chris Brothers food products. William Hay is chairman of Trucorp, a food and beverage company that ranked 77th on a list of the 101 top companies in Atlantic Canada in 2004. The Grinner's division had revenue of 30.4 million dollars in 2008.
Established in Moncton, New Brunswick in 1977, Greco Pizza is one of Atlantic Canada's largest pizza chains. Menu items include pizza, donair, salads, garlic fingers, and the restaurant's proprietary dipping sauces. Many of the over 170 locations in Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland operate co-branded with Captain Submarine. Both are quick-service restaurants.
Captain Submarine was acquired by Grinner's in 2002, when it only had 9 locations (21 fewer than it had in the 1980s). Many of the stores franchised since then also sell Greco Pizza items. The purchase brought the number of Grinners franchised restaurants from 111 to 120.
