OUR STORY

FAMILY RUN

With a love for entertaining, unique venues, and of course incredible food,
the concept for The Pearl was created by the owners of the TOBEN Hospitality
Group, Toben Kochman, Elana Kochman and Ryan Feldman.

With a love for entertaining, unique venues, and of course incredible food, the concept for The Pearl was created by the owners of the TOBEN Hospitality Group, Toben Kochman, Elana Kochman and Ryan Feldman.

The trio recognized a void in the food industry as you drove north from the city. They saw their clients and friends visiting a variety of local Toronto curated shops to stock up before heading to their cottages for the weekend. Pastries for breakfasts, sandwiches and sides for lunch, tapas for dinner, the list goes on. Trunks were packed full and away they went.

But why wasn’t there a local place that offered quality contemporary cuisine in the country? Why couldn’t you support the community and buy locally? Why couldn’t you grab a killer cocktail while your toddler mowed down on a decadent grilled cheese? In short, because it didn’t exist.

The TOBEN owners fine-tuned their ideas and created The Pearl, the first of its kind. A local Bala hot spot where you can order food for group entertaining, grab a bite on your way up north, or enjoy a night out with family and friends.

Reflective of its physical location, a true crossing of city to country; where modern delicacy and cozy comforts combine.

The Pearl is backed by The TOBEN Hospitality Group, a catering and event service management company in action for nearly 20 years. With an extremely successful presence in the industry, TOBEN knows how to make delicious cuisine, provide top notch service, and throw a stellar party. These key factors came directly into play in the planning and execution of The Pearl and have helped to name it the hot spot it is today.

Toben, Elana and Ryan are humbled and excited to be offering the quality of their business in a new area north of the city. With the goal of providing fresh, accessible cuisine and a great experience, they’re in for the long haul and hope to become a community staple of the Muskoka area for years to come.
