We recently had a chance to sit down with Leanne Ciancone, Event and Wedding Director, of Pearle Hospitality (of Cambridge Mill, Ancaster Mill, Spencer’s at The Waterfront, Elora Mill and Whistle Bear) to discuss their recent name change and rebranding from Landmark Group to Pearle Hospitality.

Renamed after the family matriarch who started the company 80 years ago, Leanne says that Pearle has always been about family. The entire family has worked in the business at some point in the last 80 years. The 3rd (and current) generation of hospitality gurus is primarily made up of Leanne and her brother, Aaron who is the president of the company.

“We decided to rename the company after our grandmother, Pearle, who started the company with Hillcrest Dairy in Hamilton with her husband Jim in 1936. She truly was the heart of the company. Renaming it for her both honours her and reminds us to keep our focus on what we aspire to.”

Pearle later opened Hillcrest Restaurant in 1957. The Ciancone family purchased and renovated the beautifully historic Ancaster Mill in 1979. In the last 15 years, the family has added a host of other restaurants and venues to serve the communities that they’re in.

Brides and grooms have fallen in love with the wedding spaces, options and gourmet menus of the Ancaster Mill, Spencer’s on the Waterfront, Cambridge Mill and Whistle Bear, and coming soon (Fall of 2017), Elora Mill.

Rustic glam, great food, & love in the details

The Ciancone family make sure that every property is renovated and redesigned in keeping with its heritage and the rustic glam style that Pearle Hospitality is known for.

The family also stays true to their belief that “love is in the details” making sure that whenever possible only the freshest local ingredients are used. From food to service to atmosphere, brides and grooms are finding what they love with Pearle Hospitality.
