Inside The Private Launch of The Company That’s Leading The Pet Food Revolution
By The Get Leashed Events Team
Pets are welcome. Those are three words that we here at Get Leashed absolutely love to read on an event invite. Who wants to feel guilty leaving their beloved fur pal at home, and really, why shouldn’t they be welcome? We’re all about working to make more spaces pet-inclusive, so when we heard about Tom&Sawyer, our ears perked up and tails started wagging.
On June 23rd, we joined a special group of pet enthusiasts and influencers in Toronto to help celebrate the opening of Tom&Sawyer‘s flagship location. This open, modern kitchen, where meals for your pet are prepared fresh with quality ingredients, also includes café service to enjoy a latte in a pet-friendly lounge.
Our hosts for the evening – co-founders Kristin Matthews and Peter Zakarow, along with their Yorkie, Sawyer – the Chief Pet Officer – really understand the importance of the customer experience. A special VIP (Very Important Pooch) outdoor area was reserved for dogs to do their own mingling.
The launch pawty brought together the best in pet and people food, with Culinary Team Manager Trish Donnelly and her crew busy in the kitchen, using the same techniques and ingredients to prepare delights for both humans and canines.
The evening was filled with a selection of delicious treats, drinks, and party favors such as Tom&Sawyer’s popular morning muffin selection – one for you and one for your pooch – as guests made their way home, bellies full.
Being wined and dined with your pouch by your side, what could be better, right?
