Beavertails Niagara Falls
Owner: Zahir Ismail
Location: 4967 Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, ON
Zahir Ismail always knew he wanted to be his own boss.So when it came time to embrace the entrepreneur he says was always within him, he put some leather to the pavement and headed to a franchise show. "I've always had the passion to be an entrepreneur," said the affable owner operator of BeaverTails Pastry in Niagara Falls.
BeaverTails have been referred to as a Canadian culinary icon. These deliciously addictive, traditional whole-wheat pastries are stretched by to resemble the tail of a beaver, one of Canada's best-known national symbols. The pastries are then float cooked on high quality canola oil and served piping hot, topped with butter and a choice of delectable flavours.
On November 12, 2011, with the help of a CYBF loan, Zahir opened his franchise on the Hill. Clifton Hill that is. His enthusiasm and commitment to offering quality products and top-notch service can be seen in the delicious treats he's dishing out and the friendly smiles that accompany them.
