Chef on the Run is a local Victoria owned and operated business specializing in creating delicious, healthy meals that can be delivered fresh at your door step. Established in 1982, Chef on the Run operates in the heart of Oak Bay and has a strong base of regular clientele.

Owned and operated by Martin Cownden, who has been in the restaurant and food industry for over 44 years, Chef on the Run continues to grow and has just recently received a lovely in store renovation, to continue to improve the atmosphere that is created for our customers.

Chef on the Run produces a menu of fresh meals that changes weekly, and each item is carefully prepared in our kitchen using fresh ingredients and our own recipes designed by our Head Chef. Our deli staff take time to get to know our customers personally, and over the years have developed a wonderful rapport with them, as our business does not only specialize in providing fabulous food, but also meeting a need in our community. As many of our clientele is elderly, our meal delivery service enables them to get the nutrition they need while remaining in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible.

We are also able to accommodate almost any catering request or contract service, and would love to part of your special event! Candace, our Operations Manager, would be happy to create a personalized quote for you and work together with you to make sure your menu is just right!
