Cousin Vinny's Restaurant opened its doors in December, 2009 in Chelmsford in the province of Ontario Canada. The owner, Chris Vitello opened the Italian restaurant with his business partner and best friend Tylor McNair. The two of them won the Young Entrepreneurs Award in 2010 and the Bell Business Excellence Top 40 in 2011. Chris was nominated for Entrepreneur of the year again in 2018.
In 2015 the two friends decided to end their business partnership amicably since Tylor wanted to pursue other interests but the two still remain best friends. Chris is active in the community and gets involved in helping organizations in Chelmsford. In 2017 Chris expanded the business, opening a second location,a restaurant and bar in the Place Bonaventure Mall. The new location was completely renovated and is an exact replica of the original location of the original Hanmer location. Both locations have the same menu options and offer a variety of top entertainment. Both restaurants also host fundraiser events for charities.
When Cousin Vinnys decided to renovate their restaurant they wanted to convey a classy image to their guests in keeping with a fashionable, refined look. Comfortable, luxurious seating was important to Chris, so he decided to go with a classic design, the upholstered back wood chairs with padded seats and matching bar stools. The chairs and bar stools were made by our skilled craftsmen in the USA. It was important to Chris that the furniture he buys has a minimal impact on the planet so he was glad to learn that the wood in his restaurant seating uses responsibly harvested FSC Certified wood.
To complete the restaurant remodel, Chris decided on plush dining booths for maximum comfort and to give customers more intimacy. Restaurant booths are also a great way to maximize floor space adding great value to his restaurant. He decided to go with Restaurant Furniture.net again, choosing our 6 channel restaurant booths, which are also made in the USA. The booths are sturdy and can handle the heavy traffic that Cousin Vinnys gets. They are also easy to clean and maintain, another plus for Chris.

Their all inclusive packages include the hall rental rate, liquor license, coat check service, cash bar, in-house decorator, reception DJ and shuttle bus service for guests.
