TORONTO TO GET A TASTE OF AMERICAN AIR-FARE
Published January 19, 1996
Michael Jordan announced yesterday that he and a group of investors will open the second Michael Jordan Restaurant in Toronto this September. Jim Byers reports in this morning's TORONTO STAR that the deal "puts basketball's best in competition with hockey's finest player," as the new cafe will compete with Wayne Gretzky's restaurant. Gretzky's restaurant is run by the Bitove family, which controls the Raptors. Area lawyer Wayne Novak is the leading investor in the Jordan project. As part of the deal, Jordan will also launch an annual charity golf tournament in the area. Byers reports that although a site has not been chosen for the restaurant, "a safe bet would be something near" the proposed Air Canada Centre (TORONTO STAR, 1/19).
