After years of serving up their signature farm-to-table wine-country fare everywhere from God’s Mountain Estate to the Penticton Farmer’s Market, Cameron Smith and Dana Ewart have decided it’s time to take another road, or at least a slight detour.

And so the Okanagan Valley’s go-to boutique caterers have sold Joy Road Catering to the Lower Mainland’s Cocktails and Canapes Catering and Events.

Don’t panic! This is only a change in ownership, at least for now. Smith and Ewart are staying on for at least a year; all staffing and menu items will remain the same, and it’ll be business as usual for any 2019 bookings.

They also say the two companies have a similar philosophy and shared values, and the plan is for Joy Road “to successfully continue for years to come.” Even better news? Smith and Ewart have said that this sale will help “open ourselves up to other opportunities,” and we can’t wait to see what those opportunities will be.
