27 years in 100 words.
Mike Timani, president of Fancy Pokket, arrived in Toronto from Lebanon in 1976. After several years in the food and beverage industry, he opened a small bakery in Moncton, New Brunswick to supply the pita bread for the restaurant he opened the very next day.
The following twenty-seven years have been a classic entrepreneurial success story marked by hard work, steady growth, continuous improvement, physical expansion and a major investment in technology.
Today, Fancy Pokket is Atlantic Canada’s largest producer of pita bread, bagels and tortilla wraps. For anyone interested in a longer, more detailed version of “The Baker’s Adventure”, click here.
