A new fast-food restaurant is coming to the neighbourhood, but this one has a twist. Mad Radish will open its doors in Stittsville on March 1st, bringing a wide selection of hearty bowls, burritos, sandwiches, and other tasty treats.
Mad Radish serves healthy fast food that tastes as good as it makes you feel. The menu offers a variety of healthy, customizable meals that suit every diet and lifestyle. Their proteins are roasted fresh daily, and their in-house dressings are intensely craveable. On top of the delicious food, the utensils, bowls, and packaging are all made from compostable, plant-based materials.
Co-founders Stephanie Howarth, David Segal (also the co-founder of DAVIDsTEA), and Adam Tomczyk created Mad Radish to meet the needs of Canadians looking for delicious, healthy fast food. “Because historically, you can never have all three: delicious, healthy and fast,” explains Stephanie.
In 2017, Stephanie, David, and Adam began their mission to provide every neighbourhood with healthy, high-quality fast food while supporting their team members, the environment, and the well-being of their customers. Stephanie is passionate about being an anti-diet culture brand, with Mad Radish focusing on the overall nutrition and enjoyment of a dish rather than on counting calories and worshipping thinness. “When you eat well balanced, high-quality food, good health will follow.” Mad Radish’s Stittsville location will be the chain’s fifth restaurant in Ottawa. Two Mad Radish restaurants can also be found in Toronto, with a third opening in May.
Located at 24 Iber Road (right next to the Starbucks by Brandon & Megan’s No Frills), the Stittsville location will be Mad Radish’s first franchised store. Stephanie says, “We’re incredibly excited to open our doors in Stittsville because this is a community that embraces healthy lifestyles and sustainability. And with so many professionals working from home, we decided it was time to bring the good food to your doorstep.”
The best-selling dishes at Mad Radish include the Piri-Piri Bowl, Maple Farm Bowl, and the El Dorado Burrito, “but my personal favourite is the Santa Fe,” says Stephanie.
