Max's Restaurant is going to open in Winnipeg in 2019

Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program started its work in 1998 and this year it celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Four brothers and a sister from the Alibins family made an incredible effort to attract the popular chain of restaurants from the Philippines called Max's Restaurant to Winnipeg. It is going to open in the early 2019. The secret of this restaurant lies in the fact that it employs locals and they cook local traditional cuisine.

During 20 years, this initiative has attracted more than 100,000 Filipinos to Canada, more than 90% of them has good jobs.

Hipolito Alibin is an accountant in the restaurant chain and he explained that there are a lot of Filipinos in Manitoba, so this province deserves to have one of a famous Manilla-based chain of restaurants. The man also added that his family came to this conclusion several years ago, but only now they were able to realize all their plans.  Max's Restaurant will be situated in the Polo Park area.

Several years ago Max's Restaurants appeared in Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia. Manitoba became the next on the list. The province has a great program that was bringing lots of Filipinos every year to Manitoba. So, the executives of Max’s decided to open a restaurant in Winnipeg. About fifty people will start their work in the restaurant at the beginning of 2019.

The former Progressive Conservative premier was invited to the event dedicated to the 20th anniversary of this program. Gary Filmon said that he came from an immigrant family, his two parents were immigrants. According to him, Manitoba makes a huge contribution to the maintenance of immigrants and it deserves great respect.

Frank Alibin deals with IT and marketing in Max's Restaurant. He has children and he is proud to say that they live in Winnipeg, he really loves this city. The main desire of the Alibins family is to try to make their home country a little closer to the country where they grew up and live now. The family does not forget its roots.

But the reality today is the parking space is hard to find near popular locations, like big stores and shopping malls, you either get lucky to catch one or, most likely, need to wait for one to open or cruise around to find it. Costco stores are definitely a good example of a constantly busy parking lot, so people have to park just where they can and,...
