VAUGHN, Ont. — Recipe Unlimited Corporation has acquired Plant Powered Ventures Ltd., operator of the original five Fresh-branded plant-based restaurants in Ontario, and the remaining 15 per cent minority interest in Fresh since 1999.
“We’re so thrilled that a Canadian company as respected in the industry as Recipe would choose to focus on the vegan space, and we’re honoured that we’re the brand they have chosen to partner with,” says Ruth Tal, founder and owner of Fresh Restaurants. “We cannot wait to bring Fresh and our plant-powered vision to communities across the country.”
“To be able to add this incredible omni-channel brand to the portfolio of Recipe is very exciting,” says Frank Hennessey, CEO, Recipe Unlimited. “What Ruth, her partners and the team of Fresh have created is remarkable. The fresh food and beverages are outstanding and we look forward to expanding the reach of the brand to all Canadians.”
Fresh is currently being served at Recipe’s Ultimate Kitchens.
