About Us

Who We Are

We are two sisters who want to spread happiness through simply delicious food, and encourage others to do the same. And so we focus on doing one thing really well – using local apples to make fritters that you’ll want to enjoy with others over, and over, and over again.

How We Began

We started The Fritter Co. in 1987 at the St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market when our children were young. At the time, we did not have much more than a couple of electric, counter-top fryers and a few tongs. The equipment has since become more advanced, but the apple fritters remain just as tasty. And much to our amazement and delight, they are known from coast-to-coast and around the world.

Trusted Employees

We employ young energetic teenagers and teach them teamwork, responsibility and customer service. We are proud of the success that they encounter in the workforce after leaving the Fritter Co. We know that the values we instil stay with them for a lifetime.

But… let’s not forget about the dedicated Thursday ladies who have been instrumental in keeping our business growing over the past years.
