A Family Store-y

Kardish has a rich Ottawa history dating back to 1979. In fact, our current owner Robert Assaf grew up in a Kardish store! His father owned and operated two Kardish stores. Robert fondly remembers his first job stocking shelves and working alongside his family. Over the years, Robert took on more and more responsibility eventually acquiring ownership of all Kardish locations with his wife Melinda. Since then, Robert and Melinda have worked together to bring wellness solutions to a larger community across the region. Now with more than 50 team members, Kardish is the largest health food retailer in Ottawa.
