Lino Panino business profile

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 or give Lino a call at 905 853 5466.;

Sports Performance Centres

Sports Performance Centres
Are you working on your physical fitness, but have a sports injury or a habit that needs tweaking? Sports Performance Centres is a sports and rehabilitation shop, co-owned by Doctors Scott Howitt and Andreo Spina. SPC has a multidisciplinary team of specialists helping patients move better. We spoke to Dr. Howitt, and asked him the traditional 7 Questions on 7....

7 Questions on 7

1. How long have you owned Sports Performance Centres, and how did you start out?
Andreo and I are business partners, and both of us are practicing Chiropractic Sports Specialists in addition to being directors here at SPC. The business started 13 years ago back in our first location over at Centre and Dufferin. As sports and rehab specialists, we wanted to help people get to where they want to be in their physical activities, and athletically in their sports. We work with a variety of active  people in team and individual sports, from professionals to weekend warriors.

2. What do you like most about being a business owner?
It gives us the opportunity to lead a team of health care professionals and take responsibility for ensuring our collective success.

3. What is your favourite, most satisfying thing about your particular type of business?
The best thing about being a sports doctor is that we genuinely like helping people move better – and it’s incredibly satisfying helping people achieve their athletic goals.

4. What’s the best thing about your clients?
The best thing about our clients and patients is how appreciative they are; the heartfelt thanks you get is inspiring, and once they experience better movement, less pain, or start to achieve what they’re aiming for, they also start sending in friends and family.

5. How has your business changed over time?
We started out more with clients with acute injuries. Now we’re working more and more on performance care at different points in their athletic development and journey. That being said, we are not limited to any particular sport and look at all patients from the perspective of what physical activities they want to perform better.

6. What’s your best piece of advice you have for your clients?
Don’t stop moving! Keeping up a variety of movement, and not getting stuck in any one position for too long is crucial to living long and more importantly living well!

7. Why did you choose to locate here in Vaughan – and what do you like most about it?
We wanted more space, and the thing we like about being here is how central is it and how easy it is for our clients and patients to get here. Of course, the 407 access really makes it possible. We have clients from Burlington, Barrie, Ajax, Toronto, Vaughan – it’s helpful that it’s close and central.

Sports Performance Centres is located at 2180 Highway 7 West. Visit their website at;

the transformation begins soon

business profiles - stop, shop + dine

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.
