Lino Panino business profile
Lino has a passion for food. His mom’s food, specifically. So when he decided to start his own restaurant offering authentic Italian cuisine, he got his mom, Sandra, involved. Together, they ensure that every dish is served with only the freshest ingredients possible, with recipes that have been passed down through generations of the Mazzuca family.
A Newmarket native, Lino’s dream was to have a profession that he cared about deeply, involved his family, and allowed him to make lasting connections with the community. Located at 17 Alexander Road, near Southlake Regional Health Centre and Huron Heights Secondary School, Lino Panino has been ten years in the making. Over that time, he has done his research, renovations and a few taste tests along the way, to make his dream a reality.
Now, the family restaurant has become his pride and joy, and his definition of family extends to the people that come through the door.
So, make a special trip to try the veal parmesan, already a local favourite, or have them cater your next corporate meeting or event. To see the menu, visit their website at www.linopanino.ca or give Lino a call at 905 853 5466.;
A true “gem” of a destination, MCD Jewellery on Highway 7 at Keele, has been in business for over 31 years. We spoke to the proprietor, Mr. Mark Covant, and asked him 7 Questions.
7 Questions on 7
1. How long have you owned MCD Jewellery, and how did you start out?
I’ve been in business now for 31 years plus, and before that, I worked in the family jewellery business at Bloor and Bathurst in Toronto. I started out at Keele & Langstaff, in an industrial area. Our pricing is in the discount/wholesale range – we keep expenses and overhead low, so our prices can stay low. It works for us! Then we moved down here to Highway 7. I believe we were the first jeweller in Concord.
2. What is your favourite, most satisfying thing about your particular type of business?
The reason we got into jewellery buying and selling is that I’m a true treasure hunter – it’s thrilling! And the reason I got into designing jewellery is because it allows me to be creative.
3. What do you like most about being a business owner?
I love buying and selling deals! And being a business owner allows me to make my own decisions about the business.
4. What’s the best thing about your customers?
The best thing about my customers is that they are also treasure hunters. They’re not looking for the same thing as everyone else. They’re looking for a one-of-a-kind piece, whether it’s new or estate. And we have the latest pieces for them, at a range of prices. We like to say, from $100 to $100,000.
5. How has your business changed over time?
I started out treasure hunting and went into wholesale. Now we bring in the most up-to-date, on-trend, pieces. If a trend is happening in Europe, we have it here before anybody else. But I’m still a treasure hunter!
6. What’s your best piece of advice you have for your customers?
Deal with us! We have it all. We are a destination, not an impulse shop. We’re very customer-service oriented and knowledgeable about the jewellery business.
7. Why did you choose to locate here in Vaughan – and what do you like about it?
We’ve been 30 years in this location. Coming to Highway 7 gave us the opportunity to own the location and not have to lease. Since we do wholesale and retail, this is our retail division. Everyone comes along Highway 7 – it’s a major route and a central location.
MCD Jewellery is located at 2104 Highway 7 (unit 7), on the north side, east of Keele. You can view their website at www.mcdjewellery.com or call them at 905-738-1276. MCD Jewellery is open for business! ;

It’s all about traffic – the good kind.
York Region is growing. Over the next 20 years, our population is expected to increase by 50% – [from 1 million to 1.5 million] and the number of jobs by 100%. That’s awesome news for businesses. But before we get there, we have to build for it. VivaNext is delivering rapid transit along with tree-lined sidewalks and replacing the "underground city" of utilities that help support development.
During construction, there’s no change to how you get to all your favourite stops and shops. It’s business as usual, and these businesses look forward to seeing you.
