Lux Adds New Concept to Roster


CALGARY — The Lux Restaurant Group has announced plans to launch the Chiasso Coffee Company cafés, as part of its portfolio that already includes Flatiron Restaurant and Bar and Kayne’s Restaurants.

“We believe coffee connects people,” says Adam Drybrough, a partner at Lux. “Chiasso is an ideal addition to our existing restaurant family.”

Chiasso, a chain of coffee cafés, will serve fresh-baked breads and pastries, homemade soups, sandwiches and other hot food. The new concept is scheduled to open at both Jamieson Place and Centennial Place in Calgary before the end of summer.

“At Chiasso, our aim is to enrich our guests’ experiences. We back up great coffee and food with exceptional people,” says Drybrough. And, one such person is Lux’s vice-president, Scott Frank, a Red Seal Chef, with nearly two decades of restaurant and coffee house experience. “Following a brilliant career at Earl’s Restaurants, Scott became the operations director for Caffè Artigiano (a 14-location coffee concept), where he managed recruiting, training and development, quality control systems and profit control,” the Lux partner added.
