With its 80th store opening in Grand Prairie, Alta., restaurant-franchise system The Chopped Leaf plans to open 20 more locations which are expected to create 15 to 25 jobs in each region.
Company founder and president Blair Stevens said, “With the recent amendments to the Canadian Food Guide, people are looking for nutritious and delicious food options that are available on the go. Our restaurants not only satisfy this need but do so with delectable flavours and menu options.”
“This is the perfect opportunity for those who are interested in joining a brand that has a proven record of success,” he added. “We offer intensive in-store training, and the opportunity to learn from experienced franchisees along with a real estate support team to ensure the location is a perfect fit for the brand and franchisee.”
The Chopped Leaf, which opened its first location in Kelowna, B.C., in 2009, has recently celebrated new locations in Vernon, Tsawwassen, and West Kelowna, B.C.; Calgary Westman Village, Cochrane, and Medicine Hat, Alta., and Ottawa, Ont.
Ottawa co-owner Joanne Carisse said, “My team and I are thrilled be part of a brand devoted to serving quality ingredients with signature flavours.”
