Tom and Mlee Price felt that owning one franchise just wasn’t enough. The owners of Booster Juice on 18th Street therefore made the two year journey to secure the rights for the young and up and coming business Chopped Leaf. The Brandon location will be the first of its kind in Manitoba and they are set to open this Sunday at 11am. “We went to Regina to check it out and we fell in love right away” said Tom Price.
When asked to compare Chopped Leaf to Pita Pit or Freshii, Tom felt that Chopped Leaf was a smaller and younger chain and that some of the products of the 3 could be considered similar. “But, we have tried them both and we prefer Chopped Leaf and now the public will decide. I will put ours up against anyone…plus our starter salads start at $6.00” added Tom.
Price was very happy with securing their location in the former Pita Central location on 18th street. “Everything fell into place…the location, the parking, close to BU, and the visibility…it all worked out very well”.
Business opens this Sunday from 11 am – 7 pm. Chopped Leaf is located at A-601-18th Street.
