The Swiss Chalet Story
Swiss Chalet is looking to continue its growth across Canada with the help of new franchise partners. As a Swiss Chalet franchisee, you have the chance to own one of Canada’s most historic and recognizable restaurant brands.

Swiss Chalet is one of Canada’s most iconic restaurant brands, our doors first opened in 1954. With over 200 restaurant locations across Canada serving up classic, craveable, wholesome food in our dining rooms, through take-out and delivery. Our rotisserie chicken is made fresh on premise every day; it’s slow roasted to perfection and needless to say, it never sees the inside of a freezer. Our fries are hand-cut in our own kitchen from fresh potatoes. Our famous Chalet dipping sauce is simmered on premise daily so you can always be sure it’ll taste as good as you remembered. And our grilled to order ribs are marinated in-house to make them fall off the bone tender. Truth is, at Swiss Chalet you’ll always know your food was made fresh by real people.

Swiss Chalet is owned by Cara Operations Ltd. Cara is Canada’s most historic and largest full service restaurant company and owns many of Canada’s most recognizable and favorite restaurant concepts including; Harvey’s, Kelsey’s, Montana’s, Milestones and of course Swiss Chalet. Cara has system wide sales of approximately $1.2 billion and over 700 restaurant locations across Canada.

Leveraging these services provides Swiss Chalet franchisees with superior added value and support to help increase the bottom line.
