It was in 1925 that Max Lester left Eastern Europe to settle in Canada bringing with him his family’s celebrated smoked meat recipe.
In 1931, he opened a restaurant on “the Main”. It was open 7 days a week and enjoyed immediate success! The appearance of Lesters high-quality products on the market was well received by consumers. Lester took advantage of his products’ growing popularity and started selling them to restaurants and grocery stores in the surrounding area. And that’s how the incredible story of the Lesters Corporation began!
