Mount Foodies

Who knew there were so many Mounties who successfully own and operate restaurants?
It probably shouldn't come as a surprise, given the critical thinking and problem-solving skills students
learn while at the Mount, that our alumni are able to tap into their entrepreneurial spirit and design
unique eateries across the country. If you find yourself near one of these fine establishments,
stop in to say hello and sample some of their delicious fare!
