35th Location in Regent Park Opening Spring 2021

Rabba to open new market location in Regent Park featuring shop-in-shop pilot concept with Paramount Fine Foods

‘Rabba Kitchen – by Paramount’ set to pilot as part of new location, opening early 2021 

TORONTO, December 17, 2020 – Rabba Fine Foods will open a new local market in Regent Park in early 2021 and it will feature a pilot concept sure to please Toronto-area palates and taste buds. The local grocer’s 35th location will feature Rabba Kitchen – By Paramount, a shop-in-shop take-out counter that will offer freshly made meal options with a Middle Eastern-inspired menu. 

“We’ve been great fans of Paramount Fine Foods over the years,” says Jack Rabba, founder of Rabba and a dedicated Toronto-area grocer since 1967.

“This collaboration is a result of many months of planning and, of course, many enjoyable taste tests. I can assure you the final product passes with flying colours, and a very satisfied appetite.”

Reflecting the mutual respect shared between the two homegrown and entrepreneurial foodservice brands, the concept will be piloted and, in time, is expected to be rolled out across multiple locations in the Rabba network.

“The region of the Middle East has long been revered for its flavours, spices and wholesome meals,” says Mohamad Fakih, founder and president of Paramount Fine Foods. “Together with Jack Rabba and his team, we’ll be able to honour our common roots while sharing our love of food with even more people than we could achieve on our own. In these times of pandemic, it’s more important than ever for all of us to celebrate life’s greatest, often small and humble, pleasures.”

The location is currently under construction.  More details on the menu options to come in the following months.
