TREVOR LUI

Trevor has made a life and career being surrounded by the sights and sounds of food and drink.  Never mind that he comes from a long line of restauranteurs, more importantly, he believes that we are all connected through our dining experiences.  He’s spent more than 20 years producing thousands of event experiences as an executive for major entertainment venues, top-tier hotels & casinos for the likes of heads of states and Hollywood starlets.  A diverse builder of innovative implementation, brand marketing, operations and ground-zero build outs, he likens a good, honest meal on a street corner than being too tied down to a corporate boardroom.  He’s a lover of ‘the story’ and seeks motivation and inspiration with each bite and sip around him.

Involved in several entrepreneurial ventures, Trevor sheds his daytime suit for an apron and knife as co-creator and Culinary Director of Toronto’s foremost and renowned brands, Kanpai Snack Bar, Yatai Japanese Street Food, La Brea Food and the newest addition, Fat Rabbit Foods.  He is also the Global Vice Chair of Development for MPI, the largest event association in the world and is on the advisory board for hospitality programs at several prominent academic institutions.

In addition, Trevor is a frequent consultant, speaker & editorial contributor to industry publications and business forums.  He provides promotional ambassadorship and enterprise coaching to numerous consumer brands.  Look out for Trevor’s next project to add to his #SoulfoulFoodStories and join him on his culinary journey.
