TORONTO, June 18, 2014 /CNW/ - BizBash, the leading trade media for
event professionals, has announced its 2014 list of the most innovative
people and brands in events and has named Tony Loschiavo, L-eat Catering Toronto, as the only Canadian caterer among the leaders of innovation. Tony
Loschiavo has stood out as an event innovator and groundbreaker—joining
an elite group that proves the value of face-to-face events, empowers
peers to consider the unconventional, and reveals a redefined image of
what the industry is today.
Tony Loschiavo founded L-eat Catering as a sandwich-delivery service and
quickly turned it into the full-service custom catering business it is
today, and celebrated its 30th anniversary in March of last year. Located adjacent to L-eat Catering, PAESE, an Italian restaurant Loschiavo opened shortly after L-eat Catering,
also celebrates a milestone this year, 25 years as a neighbourhood
favourite in North York. The L-eat Group was born in 2010 when a second PAESE location on King St. West was
opened, and 2 years later, a downtown grab-and-go café called L-eat Express solidifying The L-eat Group as a triple threat in the hospitality
Among Loschiavo's many innovations in 2013 was a new catering division
that opened in September called The Great Gobbler, offering year-round turkey dinners in Toronto. No longer limited to Thanksgiving and Christmas, he believes turkey
dinners are so tasty they should be available from your local caterer
anytime of year!
In November of last year, L-eat Catering was asked to operate the Royal
Court Restaurant at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair serving
thousands of sophisticated diners throughout the 10-day exhibition at
the Direct Energy Centre.
Whether it's new business ventures in the hospitality industry, menu innovations such as avocado ice cream and lobster popcorn, or unique décor items
such as our salmon chandeliers that created a social media frenzy at a 250-person gala, L-eat Catering seeks to always create the
unimaginable and elevate the culinary experience to new heights.
"Tony Loschiavo was willing to take risks and find opportunities to create authentic
engagement and value, which is why we decided to highlight him and his
work", says BizBash editor in chief Anna Sekula.
