Ketul Patel

Barrie, ON  |  Since April 2013

In 2003 Ketul left India to attend Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario.

Back in the day, a young Ketul (he’s still young in our opinion) played a lot of cricket in his native Guajarat, India. Fast forward to 2017 and his new hobbies include camping, snow-tubing and exploring new places. Life is like a box of chocolates!

After graduation he managed an Esso and then a Mac’s. Ketul takes pride in personally operating his Quesada but steadfastly reserves Sundays to spend time with his wife and daughter.

As a big believer in community involvement, Ketul sponsors local kids hockey, and soccer teams. A fundraising partnership with a local high school has helped students raise $400 toward a trip to Ecuador.

“I love Quesada’s message to find the moments of joy in everything we do, whether it’s the joy you get from a tasty meal, or giving people in your community a helping hand.”

Ketul now owns and operates two Quesada locations in Barrie, and his favourite burrito is a regular Veggie on a white tortilla with brown rice, pinto beans, salsa verde, sour cream, chipotle mayo, lettuce, cheese and guacamole.
