The Canadian Costa Vida locations are a franchise partnership between Costa Vida and Landale Services. Landale partner Larry Dugdale stated his company plans to continue Canadian expansion throughout southern Alberta over the coming years. “We believe our restaurants' fun, light-hearted atmosphere, and fresh made from scratch menu will meet a demand in southern Alberta for fresh, healthy, Mexican cuisine. We can't wait to share our fare with the folks here in Royal Oak.”

The freshness of these ingredients is guaranteed by the fact that there are no freezers for storage in any Costa Vida location.
