Robbie Irvine – Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce President
Robbie, and her husband Alain, have toured the world with their Culinary and Hospitality careers. In 2004, they moved their family to Gravenhurst allowing them to settle down closer to family. Robbie opened Irvine & Sons Fine Foods in 2005, which led to expansion when they opened North Restaurant & Catering in 2007. Now working with their sons, the family owns and operates Carey’s Irish Pub, The Oar & Paddle, North Catering and North Cafe. Robbie appreciates Gravenhurst’s proximity to Toronto, the strong sense of community and the ability to mix business with leisure. Robbie rejoined the chamber board in 2013 because she likes supporting the local business community. She believes chamber membership is a great way to develop relationships and learn from other business owners.
