New Business Profile: Moody's Mediterranean
Moody's Mediterranean opened their doors in Coopers Town Promenade on December 1 and owner Moudie Baroud is excited to bring a new, hip and authentic restaurant to Airdrie.
Moody's is a locally owned and operated family business, offering quality Mediterranean food and beverages, using the freshest ingredients and cooked to order right in front of you.
With more than 15 years' in the food industry, Moudie and his family have owned a few franchises during that time. They have travelled to many parts of the Mediterranean to learn about their food and culture, and created the concept for Moody's after six years of extensive research.
Quick Q&A with Moody's Mediterranean
What product/services do you offer?
We offer a healthy menu inspired from different countries of the Mediterranean such as Greece, Italy, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine Morocco and many more. What makes us unique is that the restaurant is an open concept kitchen, offering customers the ability to watch how their food is made.
What is the biggest challenge or opportunity your face as a business owner?
As a local small business, our biggest challenge is competing with franchise or restaurant chains. However, our biggest opportunity is showcasing all that Mediterranean food has to offer to the ever-growing Airdrie community.
What is your favourite thing about owning a business?
I love the fact that I can showcase my cooking talent, the way I want, with the unique authentic flavours of the Mediterranean.
What are your growth plans?
We hope to add a second location in the next 24 months, eventually growing into other cities and turning the Moody's brand into a franchise.
