Celine Dion's Sellin' Sandwiches!

Celine Dion Buys Deli

Singer, diva…deli owner?! What CAN’T Celine Dion do? The entertainer recently teamed up with hubby Rene Angelil to buy a famous Montreal sandwich shop.

Schwartz’s, founded in 1928, has become a landmark for locals and tourists alike — not only for its amazing sandwiches, but for its timeless decor. Walking into the restaurant is like taking a step back in time and holds many memories for Celine and Rene.

Rene recalls:

“I have so many great memories of being there with the guys, and with Celine and our families throughout the years. It’s the most unique restaurant in the world and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”

The deli duo have partnered with other businesses as well, including a chain of 1950s diners in Montreal. They hope to maintain the authenticity of the restaurants and only make necessary improvements.

…Just another thing to add to her ALREADY extensive resume!

    as someone from montreal i should note, this isnt a typical sandwich shop, it is a deli, with the best smoked meat in the city, and some argue among the best in the world. As someone who has stood in that line multiple times, i really hope that the make absolutely no changes to it!

    Me too, I love Schwarts. My great-grandmother used to work there about a million years ago.

    Celine and Rene have such good memories here as this is where he first started feeling her up…I believe she was, what ? 14……He was 52 …..

    It's a Montreal landmark, a must for anyone visiting the city.
    You probably know a lot about smoked meat though.

    Well, this is how local landmarks get saved…people with mean$ giving it a go. As our North of the Border friends allude- this is a place to be saved. Best wishes to them- hope it continues to thrive.

    Re: Be-Atch – She's 43, and he's 70. That makes a 27 years difference.

    This place has people lined to get inside all day, all year. I don't know why this needed savinng, because Schwartz's has been doing just fine on it's own.
    I really hope celine doesn't take Schwartzs and turn it into another Nickles restaurant type chain.
    What's next, Boustans?

    Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, piled high with sides and a deli pickle. It's the real smoked meat as it should be.
