Ryan Smolkin - Smoke's Poutinerie
Founder & Chief Entertainment Officer
Leap Junction presents Ryan Smolkin LIVE at Fanshawe College, an animated and engaging on-stage presentation on March 19th, 2020. Open to all students and community members who want to listen to how one Canadian made the world’s fastest growing QSR.
Smolkin will walk attendees and aspiring entrepreneurs through what it takes to build a global brand, the journey into franchising, entrepreneurship, challenges faces and much more.
“It's always inspiring to talk to the young, ambitious students and hear about their big dreams, I just want to remind them they don’t have to think small just because Canada has a small population doesn’t mean their goals have to be small,” said, Ryan Smolkin, CEO (Creative Executive Officer) & Founder of Smoke’s Poutinerie. “I am totally stoked to be providing students support and insight on how to not just be an entrepreneur but be one of Canada’s industry leaders, excited to bring everyone on the Smoke’s Poutinerie Rock ‘n’ Roll Gravy Train. FIRE IT UP!”
Ryan Smolkin LIVE at Fanshawe College is part of the Smoke’s Poutinerie EDU-TAINMENT Programspeaking series launched at Wilfrid Laurier University in the fall of 2018 and will be traveling across the country in 2020 and into 2021. Smolkin is bringing with him a unique opportunity; post-secondary students who attend the session can enter for an exclusive chance to jump aboard the Smoke’s Poutinerie Gravy Train for 100% discount off all franchise fees. *
