We very much regret to announce the recent untimely passing of Robert Walker, our General Manager for the past 9 years. Rob was a very experienced, extremely well-liked and appreciated executive who helped guide us through a growth phase including the opening of The Original Pancake House on McGillivray, redecorating of the other three stores, implementation of a POS system and development of new, exciting menu items. Rob, known as the “gentle giant”, was equally at home bringing new cooks up to speed in the kitchen or crunching out numbers on a spreadsheet. His personality and expertise were recognized by his colleagues when he was chosen as Executive Chair of the Manitoba Restaurant Association, a position he held since 2015. When he was not working, he enjoyed spending time with his dog Kongo, reading historical novels, watching Netflix movies and playing tournament billiards in Las Vegas. Rob will be missed by the entire Pancake House family.
