Our Story


I'm a trained chef and while I've had jobs throughout NWT, Alberta and BC, I've always dreamed of starting my own business.


In 2011 I returned to Vancouver Island and settled in working at Coco Cafe in Cedar. I supported all aspects of the business - line cooking, catering and managing the commercial retail department.  All the while I was perfecting my pot pies and planning for the future.  

After a lot of hard work, raising funds, paperwork, and business planning and licensing I found the perfect spot and Rita's Apron was launched. I opened my doors as Rita's Apron on January 29, 2019.​ My focus remains, as always, to supply you with home cooked food that is delicious, convenient and fresh. That's my dream come true!
