About the Canadian Restaurant Investment Summit

The Canadian restaurant industry is big business! The more than 70,000 full- and limited-service restaurants in operation across Canada generate almost $80 billion in revenue according to the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association. More than a third of these restaurants are part of multi-unit national and international brands.

GE Capital is a franchise finance leader in the North American restaurant industry. As founding sponsor of the US-based Restaurant Leadership Conference, GE Capital has taken a prime role in bringing together the North American restaurant investment industry. Recognizing the need for a “made-in-Canada” event, GE Capital is now pleased to be founding producer of the Canadian Restaurant Investment Summit- an annual investment and economic conference designed to provide restaurateurs, lenders, and investors with the resources, knowledge and vision to help make better investment decisions. Senior-level executives and food service industry experts will gain from timely insights by leading financial and economic analysts.
