The Concept

Owner operated, California Style Breakfast Restaurant with a warm and friendly community atmosphere. Featuring fresh grilled breakfast and lunch prepared in an open kitchen.

Background
On March 20th 1985, Sunset Grill opened its doors for the first time on Queen Street East in the Beaches area of Toronto, Ontario. The California inspired concept was named after the Don Henley hit song, Sunset Grill. The goal was to become the best breakfast restaurant in town and to keep it a 1 shift specialty operation.
Following the simple formula that “Fresh is Tastiest™”, Sunset Grill quickly became very popular with long lineups of loyal customers. Today, Sunset Grill is Ontario’s favourite breakfast restaurant with 21 locations and growing.

Future Expansion
Over the next 12 month span, Sunset Grill is opening at least 20 new franchised units and is focusing on all of Ontario. The chain will concentrate on high traffic and highly visible street locations in addition to freestanding pad sites and end caps with patio (where possible). Street units require 1000 to 1500 square feet with basement areas while pad units require approximately 2200 square feet.

Appealing Factors
  • Specialization in the marketplace positions us as the dominant brand. Operations are streamlined and efficient in comparison to broad spectrum restaurants.
  • Breakfast is a high profit market and by offering large portions of fresh, quality food at affordable rates, the formula is award winning.
  • A clean, open concept kitchen instills customer confidence and is now more popular than ever! It also provides management a full, unobstructed view of customer flow, kitchen operations and seating areas at all times - resulting in mass savings on payroll, excellent customer service and maximized employee productivity.
  • 1 shift operation (7 am to 4 pm daily) ensures zero down time and maximizes profits. A 1 shift operation also allows you to go home every night and spend quality time with your family - without worrying about the restaurant!
  • Staffing is simple with 1 shift to manage and coupled with no evening hours, the results are a very low staff turnover.
  • Excellent income. Featuring the highest net profit of any full service restaurant (over 20% profit on net sales).
  • Strong support. Head office will find and pre-filter locations in prime, high visibility sites only. We negotiate long term clean leases (up to 30 years) and provide initial and ongoing training.
  • Strong community presence and an opportunity to meet good wholesome people.

  1. Profits
