Bryan Brock and Tyrone “T-Rexx” Edwards stand on a shipping container overlooking their new community. In a neighbouring steel box, Liang Hsiaoyu is serving bubble tea to a woman on the sidewalk. Nearby, a couple hunch over a round table pushing sloppy bunjos (Indian sandwiches with yellow peas stewed in tomatoes and tamarind) into their mouths.
“At the end of the day,” Edwards, 30, says, “this is where we came from.”
The business partners have opened their first official store for their 1 Love T.O. brand in the Live Local Marketplace on Dundas Street West, just east of Bathurst Street. The marketplace is a row of about 10 mostly orange and yellow shipping containers — theirs is the one featuring the Toronto skyline — in front of Scadding Court Community Centre.
