Best known for her cor­po­rate break­fasts and lunches, de­liv­ered via bike courier, Julie Har­ri­son of Spread De­liv­ers has par­layed her ex­per­tise into a thriv­ing “pic­nic bou­tique.” Hers is a trav­el­ling can­teen, with a team from 2 Wheels Ahead Courier show­ing up at parks around town to drop off her gourmet pic­nic lunches be­tween May and Septem­ber. Julie's pic­nic ad­vice is to keep it not too messy and not too fussy. Pic­nics should be sim­ple and easy to eat. Her clien­tele in­cludes stroller moms and ro­man­tic dates. All you have to do is place an or­der by 5 p.m. the day be­fore, then wait at your des­ig­nated pic­nic spot for lunch to show up.

Har­ri­son's top pic­nic spots:

"Our top three de­liv­ery spots are Lans­downe Park, the water­front at the Cana­dian Mu­seum of His­tory, and the Mu­seum of Na­ture. Dows Lake (shown above) is pretty pop­u­lar, and we get quite a few calls for Ma­jor’s Hill and Vin­cent Massey parks."
