Caplansky’s has big (but secret) expansion plans
Earlier this week, Zane Caplansky hinted on his blog that big changes were coming for his deli business, which already comprises a College Street restaurant, a food truck and a pair of soon-to-open sandwich counters at Pearson International Airport. “Next year will see us continue to grow in ways that will likely surprise many,” he wrote. “More shock and awe I expect but time will tell.” Some parts of the deli-domination plan are already in the works: Caplansky recently hired Mark Cutrara, the former co-owner and chef at defunct Parkdale restaurant Cowbell, to take over the deli’s kitchen. According to Caplansky, Cutrara will play an “important role” in a Caplansky’s spin-off, opening later this year.
