Daniel has been in the hospitality business since the young age of 14 when he opened his first mobile ice cream cart. It was this early successful experience that gave him his passion for the hospitality industry. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario in 1997, followed by short stint in the entertainment business, Daniel opened a small coffee shop that was to become the beginning of his hospitality company which today consists of six operations, and growing.
In 2012, Mr. Frankel introduced a new concept with Tap & Barrel opening in the former Olympic Village in False Creek. Tap & Barrel is a 500-seat restaurant and bar focusing on BC beer and wine on tap. Mr. Frankel is also presently developing new restaurant locations, which will be part of the Tap & Barrel brand.
