Globe & Mail reports the Italian chain intends to open a Toronto location, in combination with the Weston family. Likely to be in the Yorkville area, according to the article.
Eataly, the international Italian food emporium that blurs the line between supermarket and restaurant, will open its first Canadian store in Toronto next year in partnership with the Weston family.
Oscar Farinetti, Eataly’s founder, co-owner and chairman, said a location in central Toronto had been found and that the Westons would have 52 per cent of the real estate and retail project, with Eataly taking the rest. “We’ve been looking for a location for a long time,” he said after giving a talk last week on Eataly at the American University of Rome. “It’s coming for sure.”
