Profile Last Updated: May 05, 2008
Founded in 1954 in Toronto, Swiss Chalet is now a chain of over 180 family restaurants across Canada and the U.S., though the first location no longer exists. The name originates from the architectural design of the first restaurants, which, with their exposed beam ceilings, resembled skiing lodges one might in the Swiss Alps. Since the brand is a division of Cara Operations along with the fast food chain Harvey’s, the two franchises often share the same location.
A Full Meal
Swiss Chalet is famous for its rotisserie chicken (available as a quarter or half chicken dinner) and mesquite-smoked barbecue ribs (available in feature, regular or large cut), which are traditionally served with your choice of French fries, mashed potatoes, garden or Caesar salad or steamed veggies, as well as a dinner roll. All dinners are accompanied with the restaurant’s signature Chalet sauce, a condiment similar to barbecue sauce but without the smokey flavour.
In addition to the rib and chicken dinners (that latter available as dark leg or white breast meat), Swiss Chalet’s sandwiches are popular items, which include the grilled Santa Fe chicken sandwich (served on a Kaiser with garlic mesquite mayo and roasted red peppers), the chicken club wrap and the messy chicken sandwich (smothered with gravy). For appetizers, you choose from sun-dried garlic cheese loaf, chicken wings, perogies and chicken spring rolls and they also sell chicken soups, charbroiled beef and veggie burgers.
During Christmas season, Swiss Chalet usually offers a modified holiday version of the trademark quarter chicken dinner called the festive special, boasting stuffing, cranberries and some fore of Swiss chocolate product (like Lindor chocolate eggs) Some locations have a built-in drive-through and most offer take-out and delivery services.
