Hi, My Name is Bahareh and my husband and I are in the middle of opening a quick-service restaurant/lounge 

We have a great location in which we have signed a 10-year lease downtown Toronto at dundas square right across from Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University).

This location is set up for two floors. Our vision and plan are on the main floor Middle Easter food (with 20 seats) and on the second floor, there will be bubble tea and a desert center (ice cream cakes, waffles etc) where people can relax and chill. We will also be offering free Wifi for patrons as well.

Our Story

My husband and I have been married for 2 years. Even though we met later in life we feel blessed to have the love we have for each other. We both immigrated to Canada at different times. I came with my family from Iran in 1989 and my husband came in 2007 from Syria. We were both born and raised in Tehran, Iran. In fact, born and raised on the same street even though we didn't meet until 2021. Our love story started then but Life decided to take us each on separate journeys until we met.
I have a 20-year career in retail finance and my husband has restaurant experience. This is the reason why we picked franchises so we would be able to hustle and work hard with the guidance and direction of the franchisor. We are not afraid to work hard and build and serve our community. We have set up that 20% of each dollar of our net profit goes to serve the less fortunate families for the duration of the business.

We have our capital and alongside bank loans, we are short $75,000
