Food Franchise Opportunity

It was in 1954, on the corner of Bloor St. and Bedford St. in Toronto, that Swiss Chalet fired up its first slow-roasting rotisserie oven. Our delicious chicken, fresh cut fries, popular dipping sauce, and warm welcoming environment have been bringing Canadians back for more ever since. When Swiss Chalet first opened, the menu was simple, with Rotisserie chicken as the only entrée. Guests would visit the Swiss style dining room or the convenient take-out area to enjoy their meals. Our unique combination of delicious rotisserie chicken, zesty Chalet dipping sauce, and fresh cut fries – all prepared from the freshest of ingredients has made Swiss Chalet a tasty favourite of Canadians everywhere.

Today, the rotisserie – a large open-flamed oven that slowly roasts the chicken in its own juices so it’s crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside – is still at the heart of every Swiss Chalet restaurant. Swiss Chalet currently has more than 200 restaurants across Canada and the United States serving up our Canada’s favourite Chicken dinner and a variety of other menu items – available in our dining room, for take-out, or delivery.

Swiss Chalet is owned and supported by Cara Operations Limited – Canada’s oldest and largest branded restaurant company with over $1.5 billion in annual sales from some of Canada’s leading restaurant brands; Harvey’s, Montana’s, Kelsey’s and Milestone’s. Cara’s size enables Swiss Chalet and our franchisees to take advantage of their scale and expertise in Marketing, Product Development, Purchasing, Real Estate, Information Technology and more.

Who are our guests?

Swiss Chalet has one of the most loyal guest bases out of any full service restaurant chain in Canada. It would not be surprising to find guests dining in our restaurants that have been visiting Swiss Chalet for years. They keep coming back because of our commitment to our quality product, our excellent service and our welcoming and comfortable restaurants. At Swiss Chalet, we strive to be Canada’s Family Restaurant.

What can I expect as a franchisee?

As a Franchise partner at Swiss Chalet, you can expect to be immersed in a culture that is loyal, supportive and dedicated to the brand.

If successful as a franchise candidate, you will engage in an 8 week, comprehensive training program that includes a combination of hands on training, online learning courses and in class courses. You will be fully prepared to run your own restaurant.

As you begin your career with us, you can also take comfort in knowing that our restaurants are not only family friendly for our guests, but also family friendly for you, with hours of operation that provide a great opportunity for you to spend time with your family and friends outside of work.
