Good meals are made not just with the food you’re eating but with the people you’re eating with. This is something our CEO, Naveen Seth, strongly believes in.
During Naveen’s childhood in India, eating was an opportunity to get together with family and friends to share one of life’s simplest pleasures: a good meal. In the late 1980s, Seth immigrated to Canada and began a new life. After building a successful business where he would rescue failing convenience stores, he transitioned into the IT sector. From there, his passion for fresh authentic food led him to La Prep. After more than a decade as a master franchisor for Southern Ontario, Seth bought the whole chain in 2017. He has since led a major overhaul of the brand and has set his sights on doubling its 50 restaurants across Canada in four years.
La Prep is a space for you to indulge in meals that are healthy, delicious and varied. We want you to “Find Your Balance” and have the option to eat what you want to eat, not what you “should” eat. You can have a nutrient-filled salad one day and choose a creamy soup paired with a baked good the next.
Our new Social Bistros offer a rich and diverse menu of fresh foods and sophisticated environment where you can connect with friends, family and colleagues over tasty, high-quality meals. You can choose bright and bold flavours you may not have had before or turn to a comforting, classic dish. Grab a meal and go or take a longer break and soak up the ambiance of the restaurant.
Social Bistro locations showcase an extremely clean, upscale design, featuring warm, bright colours, comfortable seating and beautiful displays that accentuate the bistro’s fresh sandwiches, salads, hot meals, baked goods and signature beverages, including our line of 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee.
Our goal is simple: to inspire you to find your balance and connect with each other through great food.
“All in all, this exciting new journey that we have embarked upon will truly change the face of La Prep, markedly differentiate us from the competition, and set us on our way to exciting new franchising opportunities.” - NAVEEN SETH, CEO
With over 50 locations across Canada, La Prep has embarked on an exciting new journey.
At the new La Prep, customers can opt for low-calorie salads or indulge in calorie-laden deserts. Experiment with bright, bold flavours or curl up with comfort classics. Personalize their own meals or choose from a variety of conveniently packaged favourites. We want to encourage everyone to find their own balance, hence our new motto: Find Your Balance.
By doing away with the former “Daily Fresh” tag, our new La Prep “Social Bistro” restaurants are rolling out with a contemporary new look and an emphasis on communal eating with the addition of sleek harvest tables alongside more private areas. Our goal is simple: to inspire people to find their balance and to connect with each other through great food.
To ensure consistently superior quality and provide full support to our franchise locations, we are also opening a new commissary kitchen from where we will provide food offerings based on our Executive Chef’s exclusive recipes.
All in all, this exciting new journey that we have embarked upon will truly change the face of La Prep, markedly differentiate us from the competition, and set us on our way to exciting new franchising opportunities.
