New Glass Revolving Door Creates a Grand Entrance For Eataly Toronto

Dor-Control Craftsmen installed a beautiful glass revolving door for the entrance of Eataly Toronto. It is their first-ever store in Canada located within the Manulife Centre at the corner of Bay and Bloor in Yorkville.

Their new location is three-storeys and 50,000 square feet of high-quality Italian food. It includes so many wonderful things—a licensed all-day café, a pasta bar, a seafood restaurant, wood-fired pizza ovens, an enoteca—a premier bar featuring a wide selection of regional Italian wines by the glass or bottle, craft cocktails, and amari, or “Italian bitters”, a gelateria—with an extra special gelato flavour just for Canada, $2,000 cheese wheels, a full brew pub and a marketplace featuring a variety of seasonal, unique fruits, vegetables & more!  Eataly is also partnered with the Weston family, owner of the Loblaw brand of supermarkets in Canada.

Rob Wing is Eataly’s Toronto’s executive chef that manages the marketplace that offers the best products from Italy. The $2,000 cheese wheels are Parmigiano-Reggiano, and they each weigh over 80 pounds—so that’s a big part of what makes them so expensive.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended on November 13 2019, by Eataly CEO Nicola Farinetti, Galen Weston Jr. (the Weston family is behind part of the project), Italian consul general Eugenio Sgro and Mayor John Tory.

THE CHALLENGE

When designing Eataly’s entrance, we wanted customers to have an enhanced experience when entering and exiting the location. Being the first location in Canada, the ‘wow factor’ was definitely the main goal of ours when coming up with the right entrance.  Plus we needed to make sure all hundreds of customers of all ages could enter and exit the entrance easily.

THE SOLUTION

AAADM Certified Technicians from Dor-Control Craftsmen installed a custom glass Revolving Door, the ideal solution to create a ‘grand entrance’ for all shoppers and restaurant goers. The Revolving Door is equipped with a power-assist motor, that allows an easy user experience with the push of the door wings, allowing customers from all ages to enter and exit with ease. 

CONCLUSION

Our Revolving Door entrance at Eataly Toronto creates a unique user experience for all customers and food lovers. Everything from the stainless steel finishes to the oversized door wings and glass façades, this high profile location in the heart of Yorkville is a showcase property for our design-build project.
