Hot off the heels of launching the first-ever Jamie’s Italian in North America, Jamie Oliver and The King Street Food Company are pleased to announce that a second restaurant location is set open at Mississauga’s Square One Shopping Centre in June 2016. Following the hugely successful debut of Jamie’s Italian in Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall, the restaurant will offer freshly made Italian-inspired dishes, with a Jamie twist, using only high-quality, sustainable ingredients. Open daily from 11am for lunch, dinner and drinks, Jamie’s Italian Mississauga will be located in Square One’s brand new south expansion and will overlook Mississauga’s Celebration Square making it a great destination for a business lunch, to take a break from shopping or spend time with family.
Jamie’s Italian has become a worldwide success since its first restaurant opening in 2008 in Oxford, England. With over 60 restaurants around the world, Jamie’s Italian employs thousands of people. Canadians can join the Jamie’s Italian family by attending the Employee Job Fair from Wednesday, May 4 to Saturday, May 7 between the hours of 10am and 7pm at Square One on the second level near the new south expansion or by visiting jamiesitalian.ca.
“We’re over the moon to be opening our second restaurant in Canada,” said Jamie Oliver. “We’re incredibly grateful to be welcomed so warmly – the people of Mississauga have been just brilliant. I’m incredibly proud of the success our Toronto restaurant has had, and I can’t wait to bring the same super-tasty, fantastic-quality offering to this buzzing community. It’s going to be epic.”
Located in the GTA’s premier shopping centre, Square One, the restaurant can be accessed from inside the brand new south expansion, or directly from the south parking lot at Entrance 3, which backs on to Celebration Square. Similar to the Yorkdale location, this venue will have an inviting and relaxed atmosphere. The 6,400 sq. ft. space will have an open kitchen, leather banquettes, statement chandeliers and accents of reclaimed wood. With an indoor seating capacity for 200, a welcoming bar and a patio for outdoor dining, the restaurant is a great place for a casual lunch, dinner, after-work drinks or family celebrations.
“We are very excited to bring Jamie’s Italian to Mississauga,” said Gus Giazitzidis, Managing Director and Partner, The King Street Food Company and Jamie’s Italian Canada. “Mississauga is a great city and we look forward to becoming a part of the community.”
The new restaurant will share the same tasty menu as the Yorkdale location, which includes beloved dishes such as made-to-order pizzas, prawn linguine, turkey Milanese and Jamie’s Italian trademark antipasti bar. To guarantee that everyone can find something to their liking, Jamie’s Italian offers an award-winning kids’ menu, as well as gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.
Jamie and The King Street Food Company team are united in their commitment to source the best possible ingredients to bring the menu to life. Sourcing for Jamie’s Italian is about finding more than suppliers; it’s about premium people and premium ingredients, with a focus on local artisans who can develop the perfect products. The Jamie’s Italian Canada team has forged relationships locally and internationally to bring the best and freshest ingredients – from locally grown produce and sustainably sourced seafood, to cured meats, cheeses and even flour from Italy.
Jamie’s Italian is located in Square One, Mississauga’s premier shopping centre and Canada’s second largest shopping centre. Jamie’s Italian Mississauga will be open for both reservations and walk-ins, from 11am, seven days a week.
