Chuckles Jack, see their Success Story below
february 21st

Do you know how businesses are going to need to change to keep pace with disruptions? What are you doing to keep pace with these changes? Who is your customer? How do you know you are making a difference? Do you have the data you need, to know what to do? Are you needing to talk to others who also want to know?
These are just some of the questions that we will be exploring on March 2nd Economic Development - Disrupted.  This is a day dedicated to thinking of the future - the future that is here now! Register here

Chuckles Jack

A CIP Success Story

A visit to Chuckles Jack is an exploration of the senses - centrally located in downtown Smiths Falls, Chuckles Jack entices diners with delectable culinary creations focused on authentic Indian and Canadian cuisine, all served in a spacious and tastefully decorated interior complete with top of the line fixtures and stylish d├ęcor.
Looking around Chuckles Jack's well-furnished interior, it's hard to believe this community centrepiece spent months with its doors closed to the public, struggling through a difficult and challenging move and renovation. It was Chuckles Jack co-owner and chef, Ram Mogandas,' passion for food and commitment to offering his guests a one-of-a-kind dining experience that prompted the restaurant's move from its former Centre Street location, to the new Russell Street building, formerly Manhattan Bar & Grill.
