With under 2 years in Business, Momma Mari’s can be found in more than 60 retail locations and 7 restaurants across Ontario. We won’t stop there! Momma Mari’s believes that we will be in hundreds of local stores within another year of business. We have a vision to be in a chain retailer or restaurant within the next 5 years. With that being said, we wouldn’t have been able to get to where we are in business today if it wasn’t for the support of our local community of Orillia and our amazing customers across Ontario. We will be adding more healthy and delicious products including more salad dressings and pasta sauces accommodating those with other main allergens.  Stay tuned to see our new lineup of great tasting products.

Beautiful Minds provides support services to youth who have learning disabilities, mental health disorders, autism or those who need a helping hand.

Child and youth work is unique as it comes from a strengths-based perspective. Child and youth work is based on the foundation that we plant seeds in every youth we meet. This is the notion that we plant ideas that empower youth to develop into the best person they can be. Growth takes progress, time and effort but every youth has the capacity to succeed.

Through planned and organized activities youth will enhance their resiliency, build their self-worth and self-esteem. Beautiful Minds empowers youth to see their ability.
