The Opportunity

We’re driven by a commitment to producing and delivering delicious and nutritious food in a way that respects people, the environment and the community at large. In doing so, we believe we can make a real difference to the lives of seniors in Canada.

We supply delicious and nutritious frozen meals from franchises based in local communities that are easy to prepare and delivered direct to the freezer. Our model is based around good old-fashioned service and the belief that life should get easier as you age. We seek to make a real difference to the lives of our customers living in their own homes. For many of our customers, they often look forward to seeing and speaking to our drivers and office staff on a regular basis—and the importance of this relationship is key to the success of Heart to Home Meals.

I find the seniors so appreciative of what we’re doing. I keep forgetting we’re running a business and feel like we’re doing a community service. It feels good.”

Our Story

At Heart to Home Meals, we’re proud of the great brand name and reputation we’ve built since establishing here in Canada in 2007. apetito—of which apetito Canada is the Franchisor for the Heart to Home Meals business—has been providing the best nutritional based solutions and making a real difference since 1958.

The model we follow here in Canada for Heart to Home Meals comes from our sister company, Wiltshire Farm Foods (the incredibly successful UK version of the service), and has since become apetito Canada’s most important division. The growth we’ve experienced since establishing this model in Canada has been exceptional and we plan to maintain this acceleration.

Canada’s population continues to age, with about 56,000 people turning 75 each year. As people are living longer, being able to live independently in their own homes is becoming increasingly important. Through our service we aspire to enhance quality of life through positively impacting health and independence, giving several thousand Canadians an opportunity to “age in place”. Our customers can enjoy healthy and nutritious meals on a daily basis thanks to our incredible network of franchise owners.

While we are proud of the meals we provide, we are even more proud of our people. The strength of this business lies in the customer service that our franchisees and employees exemplify. Our reputation has been built from the heart.
