Na’eem Adam and Thierry Rassam founders of Poutine Week
La Poutine Week was first created by co-founders Na’eem Adam and Thierry Rassam, also of the wildly successful fall food festival Le Burger Week, in 2012. After their success bringing a new kind of national burger festival across Canada, the Montreal entrepreneurs thought what better way than to expand the culinary horizons of Canada than with a poutine focused festival! La Poutine Week was an instantaneous hit – with over 20,000 poutine-lovers flocking towards 40 participating restaurants across Quebec in the first alone! Now, eight years later, the festival includes six Canadian provinces and over 350,000 participants!
