QDOBA Mexican Eats (QDOBA) has signed a multi-unit franchise development agreement to bring five locations to Ontario.
The locations will open in Ottawa, Cornwall, Cobourg, and Kingston, with the first location set to open in fourth quarter of 2022.
Harsh Modh is at the helm of the deal, bringing multiple QDOBA locations to Canada and managing the day-to-day operations. Modh has previous experience working in a retail setting as a partner at a retail pharmacy chain, later becoming part owner of the business. Further, the knowledge Modh has gained through his involvement in an international manufacturing and export business is a vital tool in leading this new venture.
“After traveling around the country and getting a chance to finally try QDOBA, I was hooked. I am a huge fan of Mexican food so once I learned I could bring the brand to Ontario I was quick to act,” said Modh. “The wide range of tasty offerings will make for a great addition to the community, and I am excited to strengthen the brand’s presence in Canada.”
According to the company, QDOBA franchise opportunities “are unique due to flexible footprint options that allow the brand to work well in a variety of traditional and non-traditional venues.”
“Growing our presence in Canada is important for us,” said Shawn Caric, vice-president of franchise development at QDOBA. “Residents throughout the country have already proven how much they love our food—we are very excited to be working with Harsh to spread our great flavours into Ontario.”
