Meet the owner

“The problem we were trying to solve was getting fast food to be healthy and delicious,” says Crave marketing director Salma Hamidi, leaning on the colourful communal bar at their restaurant in the TD Towers.

Behind Salma, patterned tiles from Spain climb the wall. It’s a decor wink that’s found in each of Crave’s locations, which are spaced throughout the financial district and downtown core. Punches of colour, warm lighting and eclecticisms (like a shelf of the co-owners’ favourite books) add a distinct decorative vibe to the space. Salma says, “We like to think of ourselves as a getaway from the food court, if you’re looking for something a little healthier or with a more upscale feel.”

Alongside three other long-time friends, Salma is one of the minds behind this local chain of healthy cafés offering breakfast and lunch as well as catering for downtown Toronto’s urban professionals. “When we started, there weren’t too many people doing healthy and quick food,” she says, “and we were passionate about the possibilities of how to provide that, particularly in large urban centres.”
