About Heal Wellness

Prior to becoming a founding partner of Heal Wellness, Jay Zuccato possessed over ten years of experience working as a spokesperson alongside globally-distributed nutritional companies to market health and wellness foods. Long-time childhood friend and also a founding partner of Heal Wellness, Jesse Davidson, had five years of experience as a leader with Canada’s top protein company, specializing in business systems and operations.

With these strong backgrounds and a passion for wellness, they came together to identify a need for quick-serve food innovation that supported a healthy lifestyle. In June of 2019, they responded to this need by opening the first Heal Wellness location in their hometown of Hamilton, Ontario with the goal of being at the forefront of the plant-based food revolution.

“Heal Wellness was created out of a passion and mission to serve quick, fresh plant-based wellness foods that power and support a busy, active lifestyle. Currently, we are pleased to offer a wide variety of smoothie bowls, smoothies, waffles, plant-based burgers, tea and coffee, with plans to introduce new products in the future. We are proud to highlight that every superfood ingredient in the Heal Wellness menu is carefully selected with the intention of fueling the body with a reduced ecological footprint,” said Jay Zuccato, Co-founder of Heal Wellness.
