Country style turns the big 50!

RICHMOND HILL, ON, March 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Country Style was founded by Alan Lowe in 1962 and started franchising in 1963. This year they celebrate 50 years in the Canadian Franchising business. 

Country Style opened its first location in Toronto under the name Country Style Donuts, which at that time, donuts represented 48% of the business!!

Since then, Country Style which dropped the "donuts" in the early 1990's, has expanded their menu to include 12 breakfast sandwiches, baked goods, oatmeal, smoothies, and their own line of deli sandwiches, Bistrodeli. Coffee still remains their core business, using only 100% Arabica beans, their own proprietary blend since the beginning.

"We are thrilled to be able to celebrate with our customers, 50 years in the business! We are proud to be Canadian and we have remained steadfast and true to our core principles. We offer a quality blend of coffee that is freshly ground on site, fresh baked goods and we continue to innovate in the breakfast sandwich category", says Rita McParland, Vice President, Marketing. 

"To thank our customers for their continued patronage over the years, we are inviting all customers, old and new, to come in today (March 25th) to enjoy a FREE small cup of freshly ground coffee on us.  It's our way to say thank you", says McParland.

Country Style has evolved over the years, as the pictures show. One thing has remained true, this heritage Brand has thrived in a very competitive Canadian coffee market. Their philosophy remains the same, offer quality products, in a warm, friendly and inviting environment, with service, second to none.

Country Style, (an MTY Group Company) is the second largest coffee and baked goods franchisor in Ontario in the Quick Service Restaurant sector. There are over 500 franchised locations, across Ontario and the Maritimes, operating under the "Country Style" and "Bistrodeli" brands.
