Senor Froggy is a 100% Kamloops owned, second generation family business. The original Senor Froggy restaurant was opened in North Hills Mall in February 1983 by Julian and Pat Stodola. With the return of Robert Stodola to the business, a Senor Froggy Express was opened at The Sandman Centre in September 2001 and a second restaurant at Lansdowne Village in September 2007. The original restaurant moved across the street to larger premises on Sydney Avenue in July 2010. The business has diversified greatly into a large school lunch business and a greatly expanded catering division. We were very proud to have been awarded the Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Service Providers with 11+ staff for 2018.
Completely independent, and not part of a corporate franchise chain, we are proud to be able to provide over 40 jobs for Kamloops people, keeping 100% of our revenues in our fabulous city.
Community involvement has been a priority and key to our success for 35 years! Señor Froggy has been actively supporting many community organizations for many years, including the Boys and Girls Club, Minor Hockey, Kamloops Arts Council, the BC Wildlife Park, Dry Grad and numerous local sports and arts groups in the city. Most recently, we were humbled and pleased to be able to donate over 550 free meals to the evacuees of the 2017 wildfires, and an additional 500 meals at a 50% discount.
Our passion is providing affordable, casual meals made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Everything in our restaurants is made on-site from scratch, using as many local suppliers and ingredients as possible. We are proud to support local Kamloops suppliers such as Nu-Leaf Produce, Blackwell Dairy and The Grocery People. We take great pleasure in having served high-quality, healthy, fresh-prepared meals for 35 years, successfully competing with the multi-national chains in the ultra-competitive Fast-Casual Restaurant space. We look forward with enthusiasm to another 35 years of success, with new stores planned for Kamloops and the surrounding area.
