Ralia Retreats loves Mandy's Salads. Eating whole, fresh vegetables is fundamental to performance in life and in exercise and Mandy's helps us to achieve high volumes of veggie intake!
In 2004 Mandy and Rebecca Wolfe opened up Montreal’s first create-your-own salad bar in the back of a women’s clothing store.
With no prior food, business, marketing or advertising experience, the sisters played their strengths: Mandy came up with an original menu while Rebecca designed the interior of the restaurant. They crossed their fingers and opened the doors…..
Against all odds it worked! The people had spoken! Gourmet salads were what they wanted. The sisters could hardly keep up with the demand as word caught on and the Mandys salad-loving family grew.
Fast forward to 2018, Mandys has 5 locations in Montreal, a food truck, and more on the way- locally and internationally.
Mandy continues to be the Creative Food Director and Chef, while Rebecca designs all locations and heads Brand Marketing.
When they’re not making salads, they can often be found pregnant and/or raising their vegetable-loving kids in the heart of Montreal.
About the Ralia Retreats concept. A place for R & R.
Ralia Retreats is a home away from home to renew us from our busy lives. It is a place to offer peace, health, and rejuvenation. Play, work, and enjoy life here. The Montreal location, situated on the border of Quebec's beautiful Laurentians and Lanaudiere regions, is the first location of many to come as R & R is an international retreat brand. Our brand is here to lift you up as you fulfill your passions and this is why our local community is the most important community to us. We would like our place to be your place too.
Ralia Retreats is on a mission to renew you and also to uplift the world as we support world causes. An organization that is loved and cherished by the founder of R & R is the Malala Fund. R & R is dedicated to supporting the Malala Fund through proceeds and mentorship. You can donate directly to the Malala Fund on her website www.malala.org. And, by supporting the Ralia Retreats initiatives you are supporting the Malala Fund as well!
