Restaurateur of the Year
Newsmaker of the Year
The Restaurateur of the Year award recognizes an operator who has brought significant positive change to the restaurant scene in Ontario.
The Newsmaker of the Year award recognizes special achievements that have positive effects on the hospitality and foodservice industries.
“You need to keep evolving, keep changing. If you stop, you become stagnant and people pass you by,” says Domenic Primucci. “If there’s a burnt pizza, I’m upset, because I don’t want a customer to get a burnt pizza. I understand things happen. I understand we can’t be perfect, but we can be excellent.”
“Because of my drive and desire to succeed, I was given the opportunity to do so,” says Kevin Collins. “If I can give one kid the same opportunities I was given as a child, my ultimate dream keeps going forward. That’s what drives me every day I wake up, because I know those opportunities are there.”
