Chez Ashton is a popular fast food restaurant in Quebec, Canada famous for its poutine.
Chez Ashton’s origins can be traced to a traveling snack cart started by Ashton Leblond in 1969. It was not until 1972, however, that poutine was first offered. Ashton hooked his customers by initially giving free samples of his poutine. The enterprise grew in popularity until Leblond was able to open a restaurant with a dining room open year-round in 1976.
