Free Idea Fridays!

In Honour of J. Charles Grieco
This week’s Free Idea Friday is dedicated to J. Charles Grieco, a distinqued member of Toronto’s hospitality community who passed away this week.
 
To call him a pioneer is an understatement since his own mind set was so forward thinking – a maverick is definitely more like it!  Hospitality was not a job, it was a vocation.
 
During his highly successful 35-year career as owner of the renown La Scala Restaurant, he and the Grieco family set a new standard for fine dining and fine wines in Toronto.
 
His accomplishments later on in life are what resonate most for me, with his leadership of the Ontario Hostelry Institute in 1977 and subsequently becoming managing director at the Canadian Hospitality Foundation, which helped raise millions for student awards and support.
 
We can all learn from his own words:  “Great hospitality is taking however we felt before we came to the table, and making us feel a little better when we leave.”  For Mr. Grieco it wasn’t about what you did exactly or how timely the service was or the food you plated or what wine you offered -  but how you made people feel around the table.
 
Saluti to you Sir – your inspiration will live on through our memories of sharing many a table with you.  It was my privilege.

Celebrating 25 Years!

With a new year comes a fresh mindset, letting new ideas flow and embracing motivation at an all-time high!  Most of us begin the new year with resolutions of promises to achieve a certain goal or to stop a nagging habit. As a corporate team, our New Year’s resolution is the continuation of exceptional work ethics and the drive to exceed last year’s achievements.

This year, aNd Logistix is celebrating its 25th anniversary! Time flies when you love what you do! aNd Logistix was established in December 1993 and has experienced lots of change since then. We are proud to continuously organize and execute successful events year after year.

This positive open-mindedness has enabled us to work with people from different professional backgrounds and lifestyles.
