TOM and LAUREL

ABOUT US


Hi my name is Tom Luzzi and I was born in New Haven CT but moved to Calgary Alberta when I was 6 months old..I was born to a famous CFL HOF football player Don Luzzi and my mom Valerie ..I would spent the next 45 plus years being proudly raised and educated in Calgary.. I hold a degree in Marketing from MRC..I also carved out a nice football career and I am member of the AFL HOF 2015... I have two wonderful kids ....Melissa who works for Deliotte, and Jeremy who is a computer programmer works for a small start up company called (Paper Interactive) and are now young adults who still reside in Calgary...


Fast forward to 1993, I met the love of my life Laurel Gilchrist and we became a blended family. Her son also named Jeromy. Jeromy resides in Vancouver BC working in upper management with the JW Marriott chain... 


Our interests were common and our goals were perfectly aligned having been associated with the food industry ... Laurel was born in Prince George BC and moved to Coquitlam when she was 4 years old. Raised and educated in BC Laurel ventured into her first business at the age of 18 owning an A&W franchise in Inuit...From there her business grew to a multi million dollar food processing facility shipping products across Canada and into USA...Together we opened OUZO and Blue Olive restaurants. Both were a huge success ..We also helped manage Chuckwagon Caterers (a family run business) that ran the consessions at McMahon stadium. Catering to 30,000 on a regular basis helped us with the sense of urgency needing to please customers...


Together we have 3 kids, one grandson (Devon) and two little dogs (Stan and Shelbie)...but most importantly we all have each other..


Laurel is a licensed realtor in the state of Arizona. The past 2 years she has ranked in the top 10%
