A fresh start for one of Canada’s cherished destinations

Kelowna, BC – November 10, 2020 – Known as one of the country’s best vacation spots with beautiful landscapes, Kelowna welcomes another Chopped Leaf location as the community’s go-to spot for nourishing food options fit to fuel a scenic adventure.

Owner Jillian Gunderson is a familiar face in Kelowna, and this is her second location opening within a two year time frame. She opened the West Kelowna Chopped Leaf in March of 2019, and the community has shown their love and support for the service (and tasty) dishes her and her team provide.

“I decided to open a second Chopped Leaf because the first one turned heads and the communities response was so uplifting. I have the most amazing team behind me and we created a family there”, Jillian explains. “The goal of this franchise aligns with my lifestyle beliefs.  I believe everyone should have the option to a nutritious concept and meal on-the-go or delivered to their home. Its changed my life in more ways than one.”


Jillian is proud that the originating concept of The Chopped Leaf started in Kelowna, BC where she has lived for years.  She feels blessed to have the opportunity to grow with the brand and continue inspiring people in her community to look for food options that leave them feeling good, nourished and satisfied. She believes The Chopped Leaf offers an abundance of opportunities, including “becoming a business owner, becoming one with the community, and being able to provide back to it.”

The restaurant officially opens on Tuesday, November 10th and is located at Unit 12, 3151 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, BC, V1W 3S9. The Chopped Leaf offers fresh and delicious ingredients, paired with signature dressings and sauces exclusive to their brand.  They celebrate people’s unique dietary needs and offer something for everyone. From vegan and vegetarian, to kid friendly and gluten-friendly options, their fresh and customizable salads, bowls, wraps and soups have been designed with you in mind.
