M&M Food Market

For over thirty-five years, M&M has helped Canadians put delicious meals on the table by offering restaurant-quality food, great customer service and a convenient shopping experience. M&M has grown to become Canada’s leading retailer of fine frozen foods, and a trusted guest at dinner tables across the country.

Why M&M Food Market?

For over thirty-six years, M&M has helped Canadians put delicious meals on the table by offering consumers easy-to-prepare, top quality foods and personalized customer service, all within a uniquely convenient shopping environment. We’ve taken this task to heart and have grown to become Canada’s leading retailer of frozen foods, a truly iconic Canadian brand and a trusted guest at dinner tables across the country.

Following a significant rebranding effort in 2016 – including the name change from M&M Meat Shops, a new store design, new products and packaging, a new website and newly trained Meal Advisors – M&M Food Market is poised for franchise growth.
