MONTREAL — A man wanted for kidnapping the president of the Cora restaurant chain last year has been arrested.

Quebec police made the arrest Tuesday morning and did not rule out further arrests in the alleged kidnapping of Tsouflidis, who was abducted from his Mirabel, Que. home in March 2017.

“Today, I am relieved to learn of the arrest of a suspect. From what I know, this is a unique and isolated case,” Nicolas Tsouflidis noted in a statement. “At Cora, we have no tolerance when it comes to violence. I am convinced that all our employees and franchisees, who are at the very heart of our success, join me in condemning the act that has been committed.”

Tsouflidis was 44-years-old at the time of the kidnapping and was found eight hours later by a passer-by in a ditch in Ste-Dorothee, Que.

Tsouflidis is the youngest son of franchise founder Cora Tsouflidou, who opened the first Chez Cora snack bar in 1987. The chain now has 50 locations in Quebec and more than 130 across Canada.
