About New Management(Mr.saravanan periyasamy)

Hailing from Namakkal in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, largely a food-producing community, Periyasamy ran a bakery and confectionery from his home from age 18.

He eventually settled in Esquimalt with his family after first immigrating to Whitehorse to work in the pizza business, then shifting to Calgary for four or five years.

“Then I came for a visit into Victoria – I loved that place,” he said. “Then I decided, in the future of my kids, they also wanted to stay. They don’t want to go anywhere else.”

Two and a half years ago, the family purchased La Fiesta Cafe at Douglas and Broughton streets, which shut down for three months during the pandemic and eventually closed.

After selling the Mexican food cafe, Periyasamy set his sights on Yumbrosia.

“I got into the store (and) saw a lot of unique foods, so I loved it. That’s why I don’t want to change anything. No (new) name or phone number. I just try to follow (Askar).”

Periyasamy and his family got rid of any expired products and donated fresher items to the Mustard Seed Food Bank. “He could’ve gone to buy the cheap foods or whatever it is, but he went with something unique,” he said, noting the business carries almost 60 varieties of pasta alone.
