Mag’s 99 reveals ambitious expansion plans to serve their fried chicken and Mexican food across B.C.


Mag’s 99 was a long-time fixture on the Sea to Sky Highway, serving up Squamish locals and visitors alike and gaining loyal fans of their eclectic mix of Mexican fare and fried chicken.

While Mag’s 99 has moved on from their original location (which was in a converted KFC-Taco Bell, no less), the restaurant biz is still going strong – and in fact plans to expand on a pretty epic scale – with the launch of several food trucks and permanent locations across B.C.

You’ll be able to find the Mag’s 99 food truck in Squamish as of June 12 at the corner of Discovery and Industrial. They then plan to roll out a truck each in Tofino and Uculet by mid-July, Surrey by August 1, and Nanaimo by mid-August.

Additionally, Mag’s 99 is aiming to get food trucks on the streets of Kelowna, Kamloops, and Prince George by spring 2020.

When it comes to sit-down spots, Mag’s 99 has already opened a Port Alberni Cantina location. Mag’s 99 also plans to relocate the restaurant in Squamish this summer, and in Victoria and Surrey this fall.

Mag’s is known for their crave-worthy fried chicken served up with fries and sides, and Mexican eats like loaded burritos, nachos, and quesadillas, as well as a little Canadiana with their poutine.

Stay tuned as Mag’s 99 starts rolling out the fresh locations.
