With the global pandemic shutting down many restaurants, many are trying to remain hopeful that takeout and delivery service can keep business and paycheques going. The food industry has been there when we needed them and they are now hoping we can be there for them. With restuarants forced to close for dining, the impact is felt not only by employees and owners, but also their suppliers, farmers, and fisheries who depend on their business.
What is TakeoutDay?
#TakeoutDay launches on April 7th & continues every Wednesday until the restaurants welcome us back. They are encouraging Canadians across the country to order takeout en-masse in a show of support for their favourite local restaurants. Promoting restaurants across Canada that are still offering takeout options across social media, paid media, collaborations & public relations. Creating a user-generated map to promote restaurants across Canada that are offering takeout & delivery options on an ongoing basis. This is a complimentary promotion.
If you missed the first Canadian Kitchen Party, you can check it out below. Hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos, and featuring artists such as Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies), Tal & Randy Bachman, Barney Bentall, Spirit of the West, Alan Doyle, and many Canadian celebs and athletes.
For more information check out their website and tune in every Wednesday at 8PM ET for some kickass Canadian music.
