Breakfast Moms – Sonia


Have you met Sonia?

Sonia, her husband Ron, and their business partner Massimo took over our Alliston Sunset Grill just over a year ago. From the moment you walk through the doors of the restaurant, it feels like home. It’s a cozy nook with a close-knit staff and Sonia runs a tight ship.

She jokingly refers to herself as the “Tasmanian Devil,” an earned nickname for the way she can come into any situation and accomplish so much in such a short amount of time.

She certainly is a busy woman with three teenagers at home. Lucas, 16, is her go-to tech whiz, Joshua, 15, loves soccer, and 13-year-old Maya enjoys art and dance.

Her children are part of the reason she became a Sunset Grill Franchise Owner.

“Upon many family trips to Sunset Grill locations, I witnessed an environment that was truly family oriented, warm and inviting,” she says. “My children encouraged me and expressed their love for breakfast and the pleasant experience that always complimented our morning meals.”

Sonia has been able to replicate that like-home environment for guests in her restaurant with her warm smile and outgoing personality. “I just love people,” she says.

Sonia attributes much of the restaurant’s success to their patient and understanding staff members and incredible regulars that keep coming back. Her 25-year track record as a customer service professional has also helped her out along the way.

“It is such a fulfilling feeling when we hear such positive feedback from all that dine with us,” says Sonia. “Bonds and friendships have formulated and many more are expected to develop. I will continue to look forward to hosting many more families just like my own.”

Sonia is heading on a well-deserve vacation to Vegas soon to celebrate her sister’s 50th birthday, and she couldn’t be more excited. She values the healthy work/life balance being a Sunset Grill franchisee has provided her with.

“It’s enabled me to be a stronger person,” she says with confidence.

The next time you stop by for breakfast or lunch at our Alliston Sunset Grill, be sure to say hi to Sonia!
