Founder of Paramount Fine Foods

Mohamad Fakih is the CEO, President and Owner of Paramount Fine Foods, a major Canadian food and hospitality group providing authentic Middle Eastern foods through restaurants, Halal butcher shops and wholesale food distribution outlets. A multifaceted entrepreneur, Mohamad was committed to bringing his vision of creating the number one Middle Eastern halal restaurant chain in Canada to life after acquiring the nearly bankrupt Paramount Fine Foods in 2006. There are now 36 locations across Canada, and Mohamad has begun working with franchise partners to open Paramounts in the United States and even Lebanon, with an agreement to soon launch 20 locations in Britain. The restaurateur’s dream is simple: to run the world’s biggest and best Middle Eastern restaurant chain, with locations in the Middle East itself, from his home of Canada.
