Select Sandwich – Our History
“From the beginning I have focused on developing a family business with a commitment to excellence and on building solid relationships with every franchisee and business partner. The continuing success and expansion of the Select Food Service’s brands is still based upon this commitment. We don’t need to be the biggest, only the best.” Brian Kahn, President
The idea of a restaurant with a fresh, affordable and healthy menu travelled across the world with Brian Kahn, founder of Select Sandwich. His passion for restaurant operations and expert management coupled with his talent for food preparation has lead to a career spanning three continents in some of the world’s most renowned kitchens and hotels.
It all started in October of 1979, when Brian opened his very first restaurant at 901 Yonge Street in Toronto, Ontario. An enthusiastic Brian quickly built the store’s sales on word of mouth, great customer service and the highest quality product.
From that modest start grew one of Canada’s homegrown success stories. Today Select Food Services Inc. has fifteen Select Sandwich locations across GTA and beyond. Plus, we have launched a new concept restaurant, the refreshing Urban Kitchen.
