Inspired by the Grand Cafés of Paris, Balzac’s Coffee Roasters was brought to life by a burning ambition to bring that culture to the Great White North i.e. Canada. The company was founded in Stratford, Ontario in 1996, led by the entrepreneurial and artistic vision of Diana Olsen.
In 2011, Ms. Olsen appeared on CBC Television’s popular show Dragon’s Den to seek strategic investors to generate capital for the Reference Library and Ryerson café locations as well as to help generate future growth. The successful pitch resulted in both Arlene Dickinson and Bruce Croxon investing in the company. Today, they offer strategic coaching and counselling to every level of operations as well as sitting on the Board of Directors.
