Schnitzel Queen Toronto

Schnitzel Queen meets crowdfunding campaign goal

Fans of small businesses prevailing in the face of large-scale developments will be happy to know that Schnitzel Queen has earned itself a second life after facing eviction for a condo on the way to Sherbourne and Queen streets. I suppose fans of schnitzel will be happy about this news too.

The restaurant initially started a $50,000 Kickstarter campaign, but soon scaled it back to $5,000 when the owners found a new location that would require renovations rather than the construction of a brand new kitchen. Yesterday, the restaurant hit its goal and subsequently announced that it's moving to 211 Queen St. E (which is just steps from the original location at 237 Queen St. E).

Schnitzel Queen will be closed throughout January as it renovates the new location, but promises to reopen on February 1st. That means you have four weeks to slim down before you start gorging on truly massive schnitzel sandwiches again. Best of luck.
