JOEY is a Western Canadian restaurant chain based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


The first JOEY Restaurant was opened in 1992 in Calgary, Alberta. The chain now operates over twenty restaurants.[2][3]

The company's founding President and CEO is Jeff Fuller, son of restaurateur Leroy "Bus" Fuller, who founded the Earls restaurant chain with Jeff's brother Stan Fuller.[4]

JOEY was originally conceived as a pasta house called "Joey Tomato's". As more menu items were added, the name was changed to "Joey Tomato's Mediterranean Grill," before being shortened in 2005 to simply "JOEY."[5] The company also owns the American restaurant Cucina, Cucina.

In 2016, Al Jessa was promoted to company President,[6] marking another link between the Earls chain and JOEY. Al Jessa's twin brother Mo Jessa is the current president of Earls.[7]
