When I usually tell people “Swiss Chalet is the reason why I’m alive” I am often faced with confusing looks. However, after providing some more context, this somehow becomes less odd and more heartwarming. My parents both worked at a Swiss Chalet in St. Catharines ON when they were both teenagers. The day my dad walked in on his first shift, and even before he was able to say hello to my mom, his boss told him that “he would never have a chance”...
"My fondest memories growing up are going to Swiss Chalet with my family around Christmas time and ordering the Festive Special. At that time it came with the toberlone bar, which was such a treat. As I got older my parents and I would go to Swiss Chalet on Sunday’s after church and the smell of chicken always brings me back. Now that I am older and have kids, they always enjoy going to Swiss Chalet, especially for the kids meals and the ice cream!"
Me and my fiancée are getting married in 55 days. We dated before but ended up parting ways Becuase it just wasn’t the right time. We reconnected 3 years and our first meal together was Swiss chalet. My bridal shower was yesterday and one of the questions in the game “how well do you know the bride” ... one of the questions was where was there first date... Swiss chalet!! Here’s a photo from us yesterday.
I came to Canada 9 years a go and the first meal we took was at a Swiss Chalet at Hurontario St on September 14 / 2009. It was a great day and the staff were very nice with us as the knew we were new comers. They make us feel at home. Since that day Swiss Chalet become our favorite place to gather and enjoy a great meal together. Also my mother came 3 years a ago and enjoyed an every day lunch for 1 month with my son and my nephew. My nephew loves Swiss Chalet and always remember and ask for his favorite place in Canada.
Our family of 12(and growing) has been going to Swiss Chalet to celebrate our 'family day' for the past 15+ years. On March 19 we all head over to our closest Swiss Chalet to enjoy the delicious rotisserie chicken/ribs/chicken entrees, etc. and of course the Shirley Temples. We have even had the same waitress for many of those years, its like coming home. Our last visit included a daughter-in-law, son-in-law and grandson for a grand total of 15. The kids look forward to March 19 and the next trip to Swiss Chalet.
For as long as I can remember, my family's Friday night tradition has always been to enjoy takeout. Their rotisserie chicken and Chalet dipping sauce have always been our family fav and we love their assortment of tasty sides. I've always been a side salad or fries type of girl but I tried their sweet potato fries for the first time and I am a huge fan. Their food never disappoints and that's why they'll always be our # 1 choice for a delicious meal that our whole family can enjoy #comehometoswiss.
When I don't plan or prep dinner, I get @swisschaletca to go and have a picnic at home 💁🏻♀️ L was happy bc he got his fave cheese pizza + yam fries, but he decided on having dessert first. I don’t blame him. It was mini donuts and apple pie 🤤🤤 #comehometoswiss
For my #ComeHomeToSwiss story I'd like to share one of my fondest memories, as a hockeyloving kid, growing up in a small community. #ad As kids, my friends and I lived for hockey. But, because we lived in a small town, we had to travel a lot to play other kids in our age group. My favorite trips for hockey involved going to Edmonton for tournaments! During tournaments, we always played two games a day, sometimes three …
Any guesses what the boys are laughing about? I'm sure someone said something inappropriate!
I'm smiling because I didn't have to make dinner. I ordered dinner from @swisschaletca. Taking a night off from cooking was a welcomed break because it's been a crazy month (and yes, we are only just a few days into it)...
