Go west to score some of the finest savoury pies this side of Down Under.
BY: KARON LIU
Off the beaten path is an understatement when it comes to the five-week-old Pie Commission in Etobicoke. The little joint that churns out piping-hot miniature meat pies is located (stay with us here) under a hair salon in the back of a building that’s fronted by a paint shop and bookended by a pair of fireworks stores, one of which doubles as a discount perfume emporium.

Oct 1st, 2011

In 2003, three entrepreneurs came together to launch Zebra Paper Converters. The move raised some eyebrows: the partners—each in their 20s—had no experience in the paper industry. What they had was vast finance, sales, and marketing backgrounds combined with passion and creativity.
