TORONTO — McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada and Superior Lodging will be recognized with Company of the Year honours at Kostuch Media Limited’s annual Pinnacle Awards ceremony Dec. 2. The Toronto-based publisher of Foodservice and Hospitality and Hotelier magazines announced the recipients of the 2016 awards to companies and individuals who have made a lasting impact on the foodservice and hospitality industries.
Other category winners for Foodservice and Hospitality include Thornhill, Ont.-based Paramount Fine Foods for Regional Company of the Year; Calgary’s BMeX Restaurant Group takes top honours as Independent Restaurateur while Anthony Walsh, corporate chef of Toronto’s Oliver & Bonacini Group, is this year’s Chef of the Year. Rounding out the winners for F&H magazine is King City, Ont.’s Beretta Farms as Supplier of the Year.
On the hotel side, this year’s winner of the Regional Company of the Year is Toronto-based Sunray Group. Mandy Farmer, president of Accent Inns and the fledging Hotel Zed is this year’s Hotelier of the Year and Toronto-based Avendra wins as Supplier of the Year.
“This year’s winners clearly reflect a changing and evolving industry,” says Rosanna Caira, editor and publisher of Kostuch Media Ltd. “From McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada, who are slowly reinventing the notion of fast food, to Mandy Farmer, who has created a new type of hotel venture, to Beretta Farms, with its focus on ethically raised cattle, our portfolio of winners is evidence that the hospitality industry continues to change, grow and evolve to meet the differing needs of an increasingly sophisticated marketplace.”
The 2016 Pinnacle Awards will take place Dec. 2 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto. For more information please contact: Rosanna Caira at (416) 447-0888, ext. 224 or firstname.lastname@example.org
