London: Pop singer Celine Dion and her husband Rene Angelil have become the proud owners of a popular sandwich shop in Canada. The famous couple formed part of a consortium of investors who were behind the purchase of the famous Schwartz`s Deli, which has been selling sandwiches in the city since 1928, a leading daily has reported.
The sale price was reportedly USD 6.3 million and Angelil, who has been visiting the deli since since 1961, says he will do everything he can to uphold the firm`s traditional values.
"It`s the most unique restaurant in the world and we`re thrilled to be a part of it. Of course, we`ll make a few improvements as necessary, but we`re not interested in diluting the brand by franchising, or making the deli something that it isn`t," he said.
