Paramount Fine Foods

Mohamad Fakih, founder and owner of Paramount Fine Foods, donated to Sheridan’s Get Creative Fundraising Campaign.  In addition to his generous gift, Mr. Fakih is a member of the Campaign Advisory Committee (which is led by honorary chair and Sheridan’s Chancellor-designate, Hazel McCallion), and provides strategic counsel to Sheridan in this role.  His recent gift moves Sheridan closer to its campaign goal of $9 million in support of the Hazel McCallion Campus (HMC) expansion.

Mr. Fakih is the driving force behind the success of Paramount Fine Foods, the company he founded in 2007 several years after immigrating to Canada from Lebanon.  Today, the Mississauga-based company is the fastest growing Middle Eastern halal restaurant chain in North America, with 30 corporate and franchise locations.

“We are very grateful for Mr. Fakih’s generous gift,” said Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, Sheridan’s President and Vice Chancellor.  “His philanthropy, combined with his entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen, will be a source of inspiration to the thousands of students preparing for their own career success at the Hazel McCallion Campus.”

“As a businessman who has grown and expanded my company from its successful base in Mississauga, I believe it is important to give back to the community,” said Mr. Fakih.  “The increase in outstanding educational opportunities available to our residents through the expansion of the Hazel McCallion Campus is very important to the continued economic and social vitality of the city.”
