“The Distillery is a place brimming with creativity and creative people.”

Employer Testimonial: Mathew Rosenblatt, Co-Founder of the Distillery Restaurants Corporation


“The Distillery is a place brimming with creativity and creative people. It is also one of the most popular neighbourhoods in Toronto, with high-end restaurants, trendy cafes and boutique shops. The Distillery Restaurants Corporation alone services more than 1 million customers a year and employs 750 team members.

Every business in The Distillery has a very high standard of customer service, which is fundamental to our success. That’s why ILAC student work placements are one of our biggest secret weapons. Every year, ILAC sends us qualified and screened candidates that help us meet out recruitment goals as servers, greeters, brand ambassadors and retail shop assistants.

The students from ILAC International College are ambitious, hard-working and eager to learn.  Most of all, they have the customer service skills we are looking for. ILAC International College trains students to be ready to work in a Canadian environment, which is extremely valuable for companies operating at The Distillery.”

Mathew brings passion, enthusiasm and a caring approach to every project he is involved with.  A creative entrepreneur and consultant with a focus on real estate development and place making, Mathew is driven by the idea that he can inspire and be inspired every day.
