About Pearsons

Pearsons European Deli todayPaul and Shan Pearson moved to Kelowna in 1991. After Paul had completed a successful football career playing for the Toronto Argonauts. One of the highlights being a Grey Cup win over the BC Lions in 1983. After football in 1987 Paul owned and operated a Pizza Pizza franchise in Brampton Ontario with Shan. B.C. was home and where family was so they decided to move to Kelowna with their two boys Michael and David. To be closer to family.

Paul and Shan purchased the European Deli in 1991 and with the help of Shan’s parents (Dave and Orfi) put personal touches to an already established lunch place to make it their own.

After 21 years a new generation of Pearson’s (Michael and his wife Chantal) are involved in running the shop alongside Paul and Shan and will one day take the lead.
