Our History

In 1954, on the corner of Clinton and College, nestled away in the heart of Toronto's Little Italy, The Original San Francesco Foods opened its doors. It fast became known for its signature Italian Veal Sandwich within the local community. Our fame has since grown far beyond the local neighbourhood crowd, now recognized as one of Toronto's most historically-iconic "must-try" culinary experiences.

Our Vision

We are looking for franchisees to open and share in the success of owning and operating San Francesco Foods locations. Every location we open embodies our family atmosphere and becomes a local community hotspot where neighbours share in enjoying our classic Italian flavours. Our brand is beloved so much that many loyal customers regularly travel hours to relive their fondest childhood memories of trips to San Francesco Foods.

Corporate Integrity

Every person who joins the San Francesco Foods family becomes part of a network where everyone works together for the good of the group. San Francesco Foods is a professional management company owned and operated by industry professionals with a proven track record. Veal has never been in safer hands!
