Small Toronto bakery chain makes Canadian Business' 28th annual list
TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - When it comes to freshly baked goods, Mabel's Bakery & Specialty Foods Inc. is on Toronto's go-to list for connoisseurs of home-style artisan breads, pastries and ready meals. In fact, their swoon-inducing creations have helped Mabel's qualify for another list – the 28th annual PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. Published in the October issue of Canadian Business and at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
Mabel's ranked 232 on the 2016 PROFIT 500 list with a five-year revenue growth of 238%.
"It's an honour to have made the PROFIT 500 ranking," says Lorraine Hawley, president of Mabel's, and co-owner with husband Bob Warburton. "We started Mabel's with a simple desire to bring great-tasting, high-quality food to the community. This achievement with PROFIT 500 is testament to our team's passion, expertise and dedication to quality – and that's reflected in our customers' loyalty to our business."
Along with talent in the kitchen, what's key to Mabel's success is indeed the delicious taste, a result that's in large part due to using all natural, local and organic, non-genetically modified (GMO) premium ingredients. Long supporters of the slow-movement, farm-to-table approach to food, before it was a popular trend, Mabel's offers an ingredient list that is natural, transparent and simple. In addition to scratch baked goods, Mabel's also specializes in prepared foods, ready meals, cheeses and charcuterie, with vegan and gluten-free options available.
Mabel's specializes in home style baked goods, prepared foods, ready meals and artisan breads and cheeses. Mabel's uses only the highest quality ingredients, choosing local or organic options whenever possible, with no preservatives or artificial flavouring. Mabel's opened its first store in 2008 in the city's west end on Roncesvalles Ave, and has since opened two more stores, on Queen St. West in 2012 and more recently, St. Clair Ave West.
