Swiss Chalet Franchising


Swiss Chalet is proud to be the home of Canada’s Favourite Rotisserie Chicken. Since 1954, we have lovingly basted grain-fed, fresh chickens raised by Canadian Farmers, and slow-roasted them in our iconic rotisserie ovens to tender, juicy perfection every time.

We’re also famous for our smoky BBQ Ribs - pork ribs dry-rubbed and marinated in-house for 24 hours, and grilled for that classic taste. And of course the crown jewel, our Signature Chalet Dipping Sauce, is made fresh daily with a secret recipe passed down through generations. There's a reason there is nothing else like Swiss Chalet.
