Philosophical post! Because who better to chat ideology than a buncha pierogi peddlers? Don’t answer that, it was rhetorical.
Real talk though, we take a lot of pride in our ethos: get a person loaded, they’re loaded for a day. Teach a person to load, they’re loaded for life.
And also, like. Have fun with it.
What we mean is we strive to pay it forward, serving our community loads of comfort food and fostering the professional growth of our staff and partners. And trust us, we have a lot of fun with both.
Always have, actually. We’ll save the detailed version for another day, but the Loaded origin story begins with a chef and his apprentice, who became friends, who became business partners. Their concept was born on a guys weekend in a cabin getting quite loaded, and spoiler alert: they put in the effort and supported one another to get to where they are today.
Allow us to expand on our expansion—currently there are 10 Loaded Pierogi locations across Canada, and that number is slated to double within the next 6 months.
We’re loading up! It’s kind of our MO.
And we don’t wanna brag (lol jk, we definitely wanna brag), but Loaded Pierogi built its franchise model at the specific and repeated requests of interested potential partners. As in, it wasn’t even our idea, we’re just BAMFs. Very grateful BAMFs, in fact, because throughout the process we’ve learned to empower others through our core values of accessibility, approachability, and support.
At the risk of getting all sentimental, the most rewarding thing we do is connect with people, through food (because who doesn’t like food?), and by way of building up others and helping them succeed. We have complete faith that with a similar outlook, anyone can rock a Loaded franchise.
So whether you’re visiting because you want to get loaded, you need a snack because you already got loaded, or you swung by because you’re ready to load up on an entrepreneurial opportunity, welcome! We’re glad you’re here, we’re happy to be here, and may we all GET LOADED!
