The Phelan Feud: Available for pre-order now

The Phelan Feud: The Bitter Struggle for Control of a Great Canadian Food Empire by Stephen Kimber will be released on June 6, 2024, by Barlow Books. It is now available for pre-order.

Award-winning journalist Stephen Kimber takes readers behind the scenes of an epic family feud inside the Phelan clan—one of Canada’s wealthiest families—who over three generations built and ran Cara and its many popular restaurant chains, including Harvey’s and Swiss Chalet.

Trouble began when the family patriarch Paul James Phelan—who could often be seen dining at his favourite haunt, the Swiss Chalet on Toronto’s Bloor St. West—refused to yield control to the next generation. What followed pitted the heir-apparent brother against his sisters, forcing a bitter power struggle that played out in boardrooms, courtrooms, and high-society living rooms. Readers will be surprised to learn who won this generational war.
