Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce announced Jim Treliving, Brad Treliving and Rick Kozuback as the featured speakers at their annual Member Luncheon sponsored by Penticton Toyota Scion.

The luncheon will be held at the Penticton Lakeside Resort on July 23 at noon.

“It is such a thrill to have all three men featured in their home town. These are important stories of local achievement becoming national success to share in our business community,” said John Devitt, executive director of the Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce.

Jim Treliving opened his first Boston Pizza franchise in Penticton in 1968 and has now grown the operation to almost 400 locations across North America.  Jim’s son, Brad Treliving, also got his start as a junior hockey player here in Penticton, and is now the general manager to the Calgary Flames. Rick Kozuback began his career as a teacher at Penticton Secondary, before going on to an illustrious career as a hockey coach for the Penticton Knights. He went on to create the Western Professional Hockey League with Treliving and other partners.

This event, only for chamber members, will feature an open discussion with the speakers on how Penticton played a part in the business success they’ve had to this day. To become a Chamber member and join us for this event, go to www.penticton.org.
