(TORONTO, ON) January 19, 2016 – Kicking off February 2nd, Campbell Canada invites Torontonians to share how they “soup” by visiting The Cantina by Campbell’s on Queen Street West. This pop-up restaurant will serve up four delicious soups designed by Chef Matt Dean Pettit, who will add his technique and flare to create a variety of savoury interpretations using Campbell’s® soup. Cantina visitors can enhance this complimentary experience by using fresh garnishes to personalize their soup and make it their own.


“I created these delicious recipes in such a way that they can be recreated at home,” says Chef Matt Dean Pettit, Founder and Chef at Toronto’s popular Rock Lobster restaurants. “We have so many diverse cultures and flavours available to us here in Toronto. Soup is one of those universal foods that unites people from around the globe and I’m looking forward to sharing my take on it.”

The Cantina by Campbell’s will offer complimentary walk-in lunch and dinnertime soup tasting options, showcasing the variety in the Campbell’s soup portfolio and inspiring recipes using Campbell’s® broths that Canadians can make in their kitchens. The newly launched Campbell’s Soup Kits provide a head start to homemade soup – try it at The Cantina by Campbell’s and guests will be able to take away free samples to make it their own at home.


The Cantina by Campbell’s will also have a mosaic wall where each guest can place a sticker that will help build a piece of pop art. For each sticker placed, Campbell Canada will make a donation of one can of soup to Daily Bread Food Bank. Guests are invited to take a selfie in front of the wall to share with their social media followers how they’re contributing to bringing the idea of “We All Soup” to life.


“The Cantina by Campbell’s experience will be a soup collective for those who love soup, sharing it together,” says Moya Brown, Vice President of Marketing, Campbell Company of Canada. “Visitors will get to experience different flavours from Campbell’s they may not have tasted, and swap tips with Chef Pettit on different ways to use Campbell’s® soups to make their own creations.”


The Cantina by Campbell’s is located at 501 Queen Street West and will run from February 2nd until February 21, 2016. Hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
