"This was an exceptional opportunity and we will never be able to thank FedDev and investStratford enough, your kindness in including us will never be forgotten."

Lynn Barber, Owner

Project Summary

With the help of this grant we were able to complete a major portion of the project. We were able to have a safe and sustainable patio built which will allow for outdoor dining for upwards of 20 guests, safely distanced. The grant also allowed us the ability to purchase a gate system for the entrance way so that we can leave furniture, heaters etc on patio and not fear them being stolen. This upgrade to our property and business will allow us to cater events and micro weddings and has given us the chance to be able to reopen in the spring where we might not other wise have been permitted.

Key Impacts

• We now have a separate entrance for the business, as well as an outdoor dining option should indoor dining be deemed unsafe.

• Increased competitiveness – this patio will allow us to offer weddings and outdoor events that we previously would not have had.

• Increased our sustainability and maintained employment.
