About The Chopped Leaf

The Chopped Leaf was founded in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada in 2009 with the belief that food plays a key role in living a balanced and fulfilled life, and that taste and quality ingredients go hand-in-hand.

The Chopped Leaf has seen rapid expansion in response to increasing consumer demand for alternatives to typical fast food, with over 100 locations open across Canada and the USA.

What makes our growth sustainable? By growing in the right places with the right people.

Our chef-designed menu combines fresh ingredients with bold, wholesome, and delicious dressings created solely for Chopped Leaf guests to enjoy. We celebrate people’s unique dietary needs and offer something for everyone: from vegan to vegetarian, to kid-friendly and gluten-friendly options, our customizable salads, bowls, wraps and soups are designed with everyone in mind.

Our goal since the start: feeling good after you eat!

“Opening my location in Ontario amidst the COVID-19 pandemic was challenging, but it’s the most rewarding thing I have ever done. The support and encouragement I received from the corporation gave me the tools and confidence I needed to navigate such unique circumstances. Business is picking up and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Harcharan Singh, Franchisee of The Chopped Leaf St. Catharines, Ontario

“Nine years ago, I went into this business venture with a little 1000 square foot store and it is growing into a very successful restaurant. I have now opened a second location in Kamloops and I am expanding my 1st location. Once our customers have tried our fresh and delicious food, they make The Chopped Leaf a regular part of their schedule. It’s our flavours and feel-good experience that keeps people coming back.”

Brenda Chornohus, Kamloops Franchisee since 201
