Toronto—Italian food company Eataly unveiled plans for its first Canadian location as an anchor tenant of the recently renovated Manulife Centre in Toronto’s affluent Yorkville neighborhood.

The new marketplace will open its doors in 2019 as part of the Manulife Centre expansion. Eataly will occupy roughly 50,000 square feet spread over three stories.

“Firstly, the city of Toronto values high quality food. And we do too. Secondly this will be our first Canadian location, and with every first in a new market comes something full of excitement and adrenaline. Lastly, and above all, we are entering the market with people we fully trust and we share the same passions with,” said Oscar Farinetti, founder of Eataly, in prepared remarks.
