OUR HISTORY

Our history starts with Elias “ Loui “ Dermentzis ( Our Founder ) immigrating to Canada from Greece in 1951 at the age of 19.

His first job was that of busboy at a friend’s restaurant. Honing his cooking skills, he then became the restaurants cook.

Saving his hard earned money, he opened his own restaurant in the late 1950’s, a difficult time in the industry. Loui saw this period for what it was and resolved to form Metro Wholesale Grocery Distributors in 1960, whose mandate was to provide efficient goods and services to the restaurant industry.

Relocating the business to be more centralized, he moved underneath the St.Lawrence Market near Toronto’s waterfront and operated there until 1972.

In 1983, he formed a subsidiary company, Demenz Hotel & Restaurant Supplies to expand product offerings to include equipment and supply to the foodservice industry.

During his tenure he helped develop new and innovative products for the industry which included cutting edge types of packaging and cost-effective private label brands.

THE PRESENT

The next generation, Chris, Tom, Julia and brother-in-law Zoran are actively running the company’s day to day operations with the same passion as our founder,

“Sell the right products, give the best service and find solutions to the customers challenges”

Hence our company mantra: Products ~ Services ~ Solutions

THE FUTURE

The company continues to evolve form being strictly wholesale distribution to one that innovates and leads in product development.

We seek to create, inspire, and market products and services to the customer’s solution.

That is our company’s future philosophy.
