Susan Niczowski knew her calling early in life. She started her business in the basement of her parent’s house, where she and her mother, Francis, thinking 15 years ahead of their time made home replacement dinners years before it became fashionable. In 1991, Susan started Summer Fresh Salads Inc., and at that time, the company focused all of its attention servicing the local Toronto market with , prepared salads creations.
Over the years the company has grown to offer a full line of prepared salads, home meal replacement solutions, dips, appetizers and fresh soups. Since its inception, Summer Fresh Salads Inc. sales has grown in leaps and bounds; a growth of almost $10 million in 3 years, reaching over $41 million in 2005. Summer Fresh has grown today from a Toronto delivery system to a company recognized across Canada and in the USA.
