St-Hubert Group joins the Cara family, creating one of the largest restaurant and food processing companies in Canada
From the Edmonton Journal
The managements of St-Hubert Group and Cara today announced the signing of an agreement which will make Cara the owner of St-Hubert Group.
St-Hubert Group owns the St-Hubert Rotisserie chain, with 120 restaurants, primarily in Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick, as well as St-Hubert Retail, the agrifood division that produces and distributes several food products in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. Cara manages a number of restaurant chains in Quebec and across Canada, including Swiss Chalet, Milestones and Harvey’s.
The current St-Hubert Group management team will continue to oversee operations, ensuring market practices are respected, both for customers and for employees and franchise owners. In addition, St-Hubert will maintain its head office in Quebec.
Jean-Pierre Léger, chairman and CEO of St-Hubert Group, said this acquisition will create one of the largest restaurant and food-processing companies in Canada. It is part of a process aimed at ensuring the growth and sustainability of St-Hubert Group, one of Quebec’s most respected restaurant and food-processing companies. He added that he will continue to be available to advise and support existing teams to ensure a smooth transition over the next few months.
