Hear From Successful Franchise Partners
– M&M Food Market Franchise Partner, Nepean-Barrhaven, ON
Jill grew up with M&M Food Market as a part of her childhood, and it remained a staple at dinner as she started working in a corporate career and feeding a family of her own. She loved the quality of the food and how the products have evolved and changed alongside her tastes.
Before taking over the Nepean location, Jill worked in accounting and finance for over 25 years. But in the back of her mind, she knew she wanted to do something different and more fulfilling.
Since becoming a Franchise Partner, Jill has renovated the store, built new relationships with customers, and established her business within the local community.
Martine Major and Bert LeGuerrier
– M&M Food Market Franchise Partners – Gatineau (Aylmer), Quebec
Martine and Bert first joined the M&M Food Market brand in 1993, growing and evolving along with their community. Today, customers they got to know as children come into the store with families of their own.
They’ve seen a positive impact on sales after renovating to the new store design, while the enhanced products and variety of gluten free and vegan options have led to opportunities to reach a new type of clientele.
Martine and Bert also credit the support of Head Office and their local Area Manager in helping them navigate the pandemic and ensure a safe and comfortable experience for both customers and employees.
Andrew Nandee & Drew Bishop
– M&M Food Market Franchise Partners, Calgary, AB
Drew would often visit his local M&M Food Market while in school. A recent immigrant to Canada from the Caribbean, he loved the versatility of the food and how he could incorporate it into his own recipes. One day, a quick trip to the store turned into a long conversation about potentially owning a franchise.
At the same time, Andrew was looking for an opportunity of his own. When Drew told him about M&M Food Market, it immediately stood out as a well run and supportive business.
Together, they took over Drew’s local Calgary M&M Food Market store in 2018 and acquired a second location in 2019. They’ve built on the success of the previous owners by growing the stores, creating and offering new experiences while nurturing close relationships with their customers.
“We’re all in this together. You join a network of like-minded people who share their stories and help you succeed. You can pick up the phone and talk to Head Office, your Area Manager, or other Franchise Partners and they’re always there to guide you. It’s really nice to be a part of!”
– M&M Food Market Franchise Partner, Sault Ste. Marie, ON
Deanna has been in and around M&M Food Market stores her whole life. Though she originally pursued a career in teaching, she worked in the store with her parents after graduating and found that she really enjoyed the people and the business. She knew then that she wanted to get involved.
From there, it was only a matter of time before she took over. Today, she owns multiple stores and she still helps her parents with their remaining location.
Deanna credits her success to the skills of her team, the support she’s received from Head Office, and the personal approach to customers that’s part of the M&M Food Market experience.
