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!
“I have 2 stores with The Chopped Leaf, my first being a resale, and most recent being a new location. The assistance I received from head office made my decision making process smooth. They provided step by step guidance which was very helpful.”

Our marketing team works in conjunction with our Operations team to create initiatives that drive traffic to your store, including new limited-time menu offerings.

We conduct regular store visits, host regional meetings between the head office & franchise partners, and work with vendors to reduce food and supply costs.
We also provide 24/7 IT support to ensure you and your business receive any help you need! Our Point of Sales system allows us to see what you see and allows you to instantly access vital information on your store’s sales to make sure everything is running smoothly.
“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 2011
