Jonathan and Thea Avis have been in the Food Industry for over 30 years, both in Retail Bakery shops and Wholesale Manufacturing. In 2014, they decided to develop a new concept in the casual dining experience by perfecting meat pie recipes from parts of Canada, Britain and the former colonies. Meat Street Pies was born. It started with a mobile Food Truck and has now morphed into a downtown market location.
Jonathan, British pastry chef extraordinaire, uses his decades of experience to develop a steady stream of irresistible pastry treats. He remembers the meat pies his mother made and it's in that first bite of one of his pies, we are transported to our grandmother's table again. Mmmm delicious!
Thea brings on the fun when you approach the food truck. She's everywhere, talking to everyone and always has a smile to share. She loves getting to know people and finding out what they like. She made sure their food truck was so attractive and intriguing that people just had to approach it. Jon's pastries sell themselves, once a person tastes them. Thea makes sure that happens.
The Avis Team's dedication to excellence is the deep root of their success. Their entrepreneurial spirit thrives on that foundation.
With food this delicious, one Food Truck just isn't enough. Now you don't have to wait for the truck to come to your neighbourhood. Stop by at the downtown market (10305 97th street) on Saturdays and Sundays.
