Chef Ric’s

Ric Watson

Chef Ric’s embraces the legacy of the former Rideau Bakery. Established by the Kardish Family (1930), which provided warmth and a feeling of home for 90 years. ‘Chef Ric’s’ follows this vision through:

  1. healthy and affordable prepared foods;
  2. an expanded catering service; and
  3. an expanded Food Services Training Program

Chef Ric’s is a unique social enterprise for The Ottawa Mission and a community asset for people from all walks of life. We’re so grateful for our donors and partners for your support to help even more people in need.
