White Spot Limited once again named one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies

White Spot Limited is honoured to have successfully re-qualified as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies in 2011. In 2010, we were awarded with this prestigious award which is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian-owned and managed companies. Additionally, 90 per cent of British Columbians who dined out last year, did so at a White Spot restaurant—making 2011 a banner year.

With more than 80 successful years in business, White Spot Limited is still on top of its game. Despite the challenging Canadian economy and intense competition in the quick-service and full-service industry, White Spot and Triple O’s continue to grow.

“Re-qualifying as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies is an exceptional honour as it further validates our deep commitment to our employees, guests and partners,” said Warren Erhart, president of White Spot. “To know that nine out of ten British Columbians have dined in one of our restaurants in the past year reinforces our belief that passion for great quality food and service fuels business success.”

White Spot has taken an aggressive approach to growing its impressive footprint as a Western Canadian restaurant icon. Along with ongoing expansion in B.C. and Alberta, a continuously evolving menu, and a successful Red Seal Chef apprenticeship and certification program, White Spot is also rapidly moving into the Asian market.

“We’re very focused on growth and introducing White Spot and Triple O’s into new Canadian markets as well as markets abroad,” said Erhart. “Our Triple O burgers have captured the hearts of Western Canadians and have been voted the best hamburger in Hong Kong for the past five years.”

“We have 125 locations with our White Spot full serve and Triple O quick-service concept; seven in Asia and four in Alberta. In the next two years we plan to build 20 more restaurants in Western Canada; 14 Triple O's and six full-service White Spot Restaurants”, says Erhart.

White Spot is in the hospitality business, operating the White Spot brand of 65 family casual dining restaurants, and the Triple O’s brand of 61 premium quick-service restaurants. Both concepts are renowned for their unique tasting food, including the award winning legendary burger with secret “Triple O” sauce, their warm and genuine service, and their wide appeal to any demographic, any time.
