December 8, 1979 – Mandarin was founded by James Chiu, George Chiu, K.C. Chang, and Diana Chiu; all of whom had many years of restaurant experience in Montreal and New York. Together, they moved to Ontario, Canada in 1979 and purchased a small restaurant with Chinese-Canadian décor offering à-la-carte, take-out, and delivery. The restaurant was called “Mandarin” and was located on Queen Street in Brampton, Ontario.
