PORTA™ launches as Ontario's first Italian meal delivery service – Yahoo Finance

Renowned restaurateur Cosimo Mammoliti brings traditional restaurant-quality Italian food to Ontario kitchen tables, cooked in 15 minutes or less
TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2021 /CNW/ – From the same culinary team behind Terroni, Sud Forno and Spaccio, comes PORTA™ – Ontario's first Italian meal delivery service. Meaning 'door' or 'carry' in Italian, PORTA brings ready-to-cook traditional Italian food directly to the homes of millions province-wide.
For over 25 years, Cosimo Mammoliti and his family have shared their love of food through their twelve restaurants, bakeries and shops across North America, where they have presented their unique approach to Italian dining to millions of loyal customers. With a desire to get this quality of food into more homes, Cosimo is now taking the food he loves and sharing it more broadly as a ready-to-cook meal delivery business.
"While restaurants were closed during the pandemic, we learned a lot about our customers' desire to replicate parts of the dining out experience in their own homes," says Mammoliti, one of the founding partners of PORTA. "Even though they couldn't visit us in our eateries, they still wanted restaurant-quality Italian food made with real ingredients. So, I challenged our chefs to start thinking about how we could bring restaurant-quality Italian food to more tables across the country."
The result is a curated food subscription that brings the best of Italy to you, so everyone can feel like a chef and enjoy the kind of Italian food that makes a house feel like a home. To start, PORTA will offer eight different pasta dishes, eight different pizzas and four desserts. PORTA uses a unique, Roman-style pizza dough called Stirata, which results in a light and crispy dough even in the most unforgiving of home ovens.
"PORTA offers something that doesn't exist in the market today – an elevated dining experience that saves people time, effort and the dreaded clean up," explains Jason Cassidy, founding general manager of PORTA. "Italian food is one of the most popular cuisines in North America, has the ability to bring families together, and is highly habitual."
Each menu item is handmade fresh by chefs and then flash frozen to protect its rich flavours and make it easy to store at home. All you have to do is take it out of the freezer and cook it, which takes only 15 minutes or less, with little to no preparation or clean up required.
"It's truly never been easier to serve high-quality, traditional Italian food to your family and friends in your home at a great price," continues Cassidy.
PORTA's subscription service allows Ontarians to choose between three delivery frequency options: weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Subscribers can always change their frequency or even skip a week, and they can cancel at any time. Pizzas are $11.99, pastas (2 servings) are $18.99 and the dessert pack (4 servings) is $13.99. Ontarians can visit EATPORTA.com today to place their order.
PORTA has partnered with BrandProject to provide seed funding and operational expertise to support the business. "We are thrilled to partner with Cosimo and his team to build the next great Italian food business," says Andrew Black, CEO of BrandProject and board member at PORTA. "There is a huge demand for a restaurant quality Italian food at home and PORTA is designed to meet that need. We look forward to working with the PORTA team to deliver an exceptional customer experience."

The automotive sector is in the midst of an enormous change. A combination of social and political forces are pushing the industry more and more toward adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) as a new standard – although the internal combustion engine is not likely to be fully phased out, EVs are certain to find a large niche. ‘Last mile’ delivery, and various fleet businesses are already finding that EVs can meet their needs efficiently.

Buy the dip, wrote J.P. Morgan’s strategists early this past week. Yes, the U.S. inflation rate just hit 7%, the highest since 1982, back when E.T. was phoning home and the rich kid on my street got a Commodore 64 computer—his old man worked for IBM. J.P. Morgan compares now with late 2018, when rate increases sparked a stock selloff, and the Fed later reversed course.
This month marks an anniversary of sorts, as it was three years ago that the current bull market got started. Aside from the short, albeit deep, turndown in Feb/March of 2020, when the corona truck hit us, stock markets have been rising steadily since January 2019. And despite the pandemic, the market’s rate of increase was steeper after the short 2020 recession than before it.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell recently confirmed that the central bank will be raising interest rates this year, and previous comments suggest that multiple rate hikes could be in the works. Rising interest rates have typically meant a much weaker backdrop for growth stocks, but there are also companies in the category that already trade at steep discounts and could be poised for big gains despite less favorable macroeconomic conditions. With that in mind, a panel of Motley Fool contributors has profiled stocks that could still be capable of doubling before the year is out.
