Nana’s Kitchen began as a small restaurant producing delicious family style and ethnic meals in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Co-Founders Nasim and Shelina started with a restaurant that became well known for their great food, lots of laughter and for providing job opportunities as cooks and servers to new Canadian women.
By 2000, the take-away orders for their popular pastry items were surpassing the restaurant’s capacity. From this demand, Nana’s Kitchen production facility was born. With that step came their sales to Grocery Retail and Food Service throughout North America. In 2019 Shelina took over Nana’s Kitchen after her sister made the decision to retire.
Fueled by a strong vision to produce to the highest quality product, Nanas Kitchen opened their state-of-the-art production facility. As a CFIA inspected facility, Nana’s Kitchen is proud of their HACCP certification and British Retailer Consortium’s (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety.
Several of the original restaurant staff have grown to become managers at Nana’s Kitchen production facility. The legacy of providing a place for women to work remains very important to the company. Nana’s Kitchen continues to be a place where daily laughter and great food are an every day occurrence.
2020 has brought a lot of challenges with the global pandemic. Nana’s Kitchen has pushed through and has not only been able to provide the same great tasting products, but also has been able to ensure the safety of our staff members by implementing even tighter safety protocols.

No matter if you called her “Nana, Grandma, Baba, Abuela or Dadi” your own Nana’s kitchen was a special place. Her signature meal, pastry or special sauce tasted unlike anyone else’s recipe and might be a food memory that you recall to this day.
