Meet the owner

Three years ago, three simple Canadian guys working for Sircorp—the umbrella company of casual dining restaurants like Canyon Creek, Jack Astor’s and Alice Fazooli’s—decided that they needed to put their experience to good use. Over 67 years of combined practice in opening up restaurants and designing menus led the threesome to one collective idea: “Let’s open up something of our own,” said Mike Rame, head chef of Union Social Eatery.

“The two owners were actually sitting down at Tim Hortons and they just started writing words on a piece of paper,” explains Rame, recalling how the name Union Social Eatery came to be. “Then they just pieced a few words together. We know we wanted to be a social place—it’s a union of social.”

Union Social Eatery was born and the pilot restaurant in Mississauga quickly became popular with west-enders. In January 2014, around three years after the launch of the first location, USE made its way into uptown Toronto. The strategy behind USE’s success? “I wanted to make the food very approachable,” says Rame.
