Despite being in Canada for less than 10 years, Marc Forrat received Canada-wide attention when he appeared on CBC-TV’s business reality show Dragon’s Den in 2006. The show gives budding entrepreneurs the chance to pitch for funding to expand their product and/or concept. He was offered an investment deal with Jim Treliving, co-owner of the Boston Pizza chain who wanted 50% of the business and 200 franchise outlets across Canada. The deal was later not fulfilled – Marc wanted to stick to his roots and grow the business through the reputation of his home-made success, and natural ingredients/suppliers.
