A family tradition still going strong after more than 50 years

In 1965, Raymond Martel, with support from his brother Gilles, decided to start his own business. He began by selling – at construction sites – sandwiches prepared by his mother and his wife, Cécile.

Many developments and acquisitions quickly followed this initial business initiative. Later, the company extended its scope of activities over a vast sales territory covering Quebec, Ontario, and the Maritimes.

Today, Martel Group, whose head office is located in Terrebonne, is the top-ranking company in the sandwich and submarine industry, well ahead of its competition. The Group of business partners include seven separate companies: Aliments Martel Foods, Excel Prix grossiste en alimentation, National Brands Distribution, Crudessence, Services Alimentaires MonChâteau, Le Cookie Club and Boulangerie du Petit Pré; as well as Méga Snack, a division of Excel Prix grossiste en alimentation.
