MISSISSAUGA, August 9, 2018 – CWB Franchise Finance (CWB), a division of CWB Financial Group, has provided financing to the Joseph Richard Group to assist with new premises construction, expansion, and renovations of existing premises and other general corporate purposes. Established in 2002 by founding partners Andre Joseph Bourque and Ryan Richard Moreno, the Joseph Richard Group owns and operates 18 restaurants in the British Columbia lower mainland, including Oak & Thorne Public House, S&L Kitchen and Bar, Townhall Public House, and the Oceanside Yacht Club.

“CWB’s knowledge of the restaurant business was evident from the start. We saw an opportunity to work with a partner that could develop unique financing for the Joseph Richard Group, and we pursued this partnership,” says Ryan Moreno. “We’re now poised to deliver on our vision for growth and expansion, and look forward to a continued, close relationship with CWB Franchise Finance.”
