Adam Pesce is no rookie when it comes to coffee or The Drake Hotel. His father has been in coffee since 1978 + the family-owned business, Reunion Island Coffee, has been hustling in the roasting game in + around Toronto since 1995.
Gracie Goad, our Food & Beverage + Training Manager at Drake Hotel, is quite the busy bee. When she's not at the Hotel organizing workshops + tutorials in things like product knowledge or personal finance for servers, she's one of twenty seven up-and-coming leaders selected by CivicAction to participate in the DiverseCity "Civic MBA".
Drake invites you to give back this season by donating toys, warm clothing + grocery gifts for our annual Toy Drive. All contributions will be donated to the Alexander Muir Elementary School + Out of the Cold Program in Toronto and StoreHouse Food Bank in Wellington, ensuring a happy holiday season for those who could use a little help in making it extra special. We’re collecting until the 17th so come by today + drop off some goodies!
It's no surprise that one of the best hotbeds for arts + culture in the 6ix would also harbour some of the most talented movers + shakers of Toronto! A dedicated member of the Drake General Store staff team, our DGS shopgirl also works as a multi-talented artist when she's not offering you five star service! Check out today's featured Staff Spotlight and get yourself aquainted with multi-talented Toronto-based artist, Josefina Hernandez!
