All About Us

Today’s Tucker’s represents the evolution of a restaurant concept that originated in Winnipeg in 1975. Mother Tucker’s Food Experience featured a 60-item salad bar…one of the first and most extensive anywhere, and pioneered the idea of the roast beef carvery and all-inclusive meal pricing. Just about everything on the menu was made-from-scratch, including the freshly-baked pull-apart bread loaves and Mom’s apple pie that accompanied every meal!

Mother Tucker’s Food Experience became Tucker’s Marketplace in 1994. The transition to a full-fledged buffet format was a natural one in light of the original concept’s design. The salad bar, roast beef carvery and bakeshop that were Mother Tucker’s hallmarks were supplemented with a soup bar, bread bar, fresh food cooking station, expanded bakeshop and ice cream stand.

More than twenty years on, Tucker’s Marketplace continues to evolve. And as we develop new food and beverage ideas for our lunch, brunch, dinner and special occasion programs, we challenge ourselves to come up with new tastes from both near and far that have the potential to excite our guests and challenge expectations of what a buffet can be.

Notwithstanding our commitment to evolve, we remain true to a few simple, guiding principles…to food quality that exceeds expectations, to welcoming smiles, to polite and professional service and to fair pricing. We’re committed to delivering a restaurant experience that’s innovative, entertaining, reliable and affordable…so that you want to return time and time again.

And we believe that’s why we’ve been around since 1975.
