Meet Warren & Rachel Fornara

Warren & Rachel Fornara is the owner of Daddio's Family Restaurant

There’s no better place to operate a family restaurant than a wonderful, family-oriented community like Smithers, according to Rachel Fornara. She and her husband, Warren, purchased Daddio’s Family Restaurant in 2013, in large part as an investment in their and their family’s future and to build a legacy that they could pass on to their kids.

“The Bulkley Valley is so beautiful and is a great place to raise a family. We love Smithers!” says Rachel. It’s the only place the Fornaras would consider raising their own children, and they appreciate the fact that Smithers has so much to offer in the way of family activities, like clubs, sports, recreation, good schools and safety and security.

Of course, a community is just a town without the people who make it up, and Smithers has some of the best in the world. “People in Smithers are friendly and… everyone is willing to jump in and help when it counts,” Rachel notes. She and Warren have seen the people of Smithers express compassion when one of their own was in need. “No matter what is going on, this town will jump in and do whatever it takes to help support anyone in need.” The Fornaras are especially proud of their staff who, they say, exemplify that compassionate spirit and commitment to family. In the short time that they have owned their restaurant, they have been enjoying getting to know their customers who, they declare, have shown them an outpouring of support and who are extremely passionate about supporting their local small business owners and seeing Smithers thrive.
