Franchisees Kate and Jerome Ubalde emigrated from the Philippines in 2008 when Jerome’s previous employer relocated him. Kate was a doctor in her home country, so she looked for a new work opportunity in the service-care industry.
“We wanted to find a franchise that would be a great business opportunity and benefit our community,” she says. “We did a lot of homework to find something right for us. The more we learned about Heart to Home Meals, the better it felt.”
The Ubaldes’ franchise serves the area east of Yonge Street to the Scarborough-Pickering border.
