The branding and colour scheme for the restaurants will be different and menus, takeout bags, promotional material and the like from Famous Laffa Kosher will all feature the COR kosher symbol prominently. At present the 401 Magnetic Drive is the only Famous Laffa Kosher location. Dr. Laffa on the Go located at 3027 Bathurst Street is also still in operation and under COR certification.
