After being based in the small shopping complex on Robert Burns Avenue in Côte Saint-Luc for 25 years, Solly the Caterer is relocating to Lachine.
“They are building condos so we have to move,” owner Mitchell Kadanoff told me. “ So we are moving to a brand new kitchen in Lachine where customers will be welcome again once COVID-19 somehow ends. Our CSL kitchen used to accept
customers pre COVID, but now we do deliveries directly to homes and will continue to do so from Lachine.”
The new address is 130 St. Joseph Blvd. Their final day in CSL will be October 30. “We have a large parking lot for customers to eventually come visit us in Lachine,” he says.
Home delivery service will be temporarily stopped between October 28 and and November 6.
“Our new kitchen will now all be on one floor as compared to two in CSL and built with expansion in mind,” Kadanoff says. “The process to find a new kitchen and to build it was about two years.There were and still are many obstacles in doing such a move and we are hoping to only be shut down for a couple of days in terms of our wholesale business and delivery to our retail customers such as Nosherz, REAL Bagel, and many others.”
The new locale is only a few minutes away from the best steamed hotdog in town at Lafleurs.
A brand new website for online ordering being is developed, for a November launch. There will also be new business division set for January.
"All of our great customers have been extremely understanding during the process,” Kadanoff says. “Davcon Construction was hired as general contractors for the move and their owner David Fine has been fabulous to work with. COVID-19 has made it very difficult for us to get the new kitchen done in time, but even with the pandemic causing havoc to our schedule we somehow managed.”
