Our success and growth year after year is proof that our diversified business has excelled and become one of the leading names in the hospitality and entertainment industry.
Our results reinforce our tireless spirit, which inspires our entire team to be innovative, and to never stop in the pursuit of excellence. My passion has always been to bring people together. Although a lot has changed in the world since our inception, people still want to receive great service and have great food, and I am still driven by that same desire to deliver these at each event. This is what has kept byPeterandPauls.com on top for the last 35 years. The fact is, we love what we do, and what we simply want to do is exceed our client’s expectations every time.
With three decades of experience and having served over 23 million people, 128 million cocktails and hosted 162 thousand events, I am confident the best is yet to come.
Born in Potamia, Sparti, Greece, Peter Eliopoulos immigrated to Canada in 1967 with his parents and younger sister. They moved into a humble home in Toronto with his two uncles where quarters were never too close because spending time together with family was always something that he valued. His first taste of entrepreneurship began shortly after arriving in Canada, when he took on his first paper route at 12 years old. Putting 100% effort into everything he did, Peter would go above and beyond – wowing his customers by providing an exceptional client experience.
Peter’s Greek influence on celebration shows through the love and flair he brings to food, drink, and entertainment. Peter thrived off of the fast-paced environment that came with the restaurant industry and grew up in the business. Working along side his uncles throughout much of his early life in their family restaurant.
When Peter met his wife, Anna, they instantly became the best partners in life, love and business. Together they formed the foundation upon which, byPeterandPauls.com was built. Wanting to start a family and build a life together, Peter merged his love of entertainment and hospitality with his entrepreneurial spirit and made an investment in his family’s future. Peter purchased Paul’s Fine Foods and it was not long after this that he and his wife had three daughters. Katherine, Angela and Nicole have always been involved in the business, playing a key role in helping the company operate successfully on a day-to-day basis. The girls went on to marry and now have 6 beautiful children between them.
Fuelled by passion, and a vision to grow, Peter and Anna expanded the business to offer their clientele off-site catering, gift baskets and as always, outstanding customer service. It was this momentum that drove the business to eventually grow into the Peter and Paul’s group of companies.
“It has been an incredible ride,” says Peter Eliopoulos, “byPeterandPauls.com has grown beyond my wildest dreams!”

Our passion has always been to bring people together. Although, a lot has changed in the world since the inception of byPeterandPauls.com, some things remain the same – people still want to receive great service and have great food, and we are still driven by that same desire to deliver these at each event.

Our future is shaped by our experience and our vision. With over three decades of experience and having served over 23 million people, 128 million cocktails and hosted 162 thousand events, it is with confidence that we say the best is yet to come.
“Hospitality is in my DNA. It’s as simple as that. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished. The future holds great things,” says Eliopoulos.
“It’s very difficult today because we live in a world where so much is pre-made and pre-purchased but we strive to make everything from scratch and serve a meal that is comparable to a high end restaurant. I really mean that. When someone comes to any of our venues, they know they are going to eat well – that’s the reputation we’ve built and we’re proud of that.” – Peter Eliopoulos
