The funding allowed us to more than double our outdoor seating capacity to provide a safe dining environment, while also assisting in keeping our key food and beverage staff employed. The funding kick started a new business venture and restaurant project that will make us leaders in the local restaurant culinary scene. Thank you investStratford and FedDev Ontario for helping make our dream a reality!"
