Since 1975 when John Dys, our founder, opened the first De Dutch Pannekoek House in Vancouver , British Columbia , we have strived to uphold quality of food and service in a unique environment.
Over the years, we have evolved and continue to do so with our many signature menu items and our distinctive décor that has helped us create our own identity. Folks from outside the company recognized our achievements and asked to join us as a franchisee. Each new member of our franchise family brings with them their own special characteristics which enhance the individual attention expected at a neighbourhood restaurant.
Like many great stories throughout history, ours starts with a mistake. The year was 1955 and John Dys was living in the Netherlands. At some point John had a great idea. Join the army. And like most men with great ideas, this one didn’t work. Shortly after joining, John wanted “out.” Luckily the Dutch army provided three convenient options: die, retire, or leave the country. Option three seemed nice. So he packed his bags and left for Canada.
