TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2017 /CNW/ - We all have a special restaurant moment. What's yours? For Canada 150, Restaurants Canada is launching Making Moments, a campaign to collectively celebrate and share the unique role that restaurants play in the everyday lives of Canadians.
More than 1.2 million Canadians are employed in the restaurant and foodservice industry, serving more than 18 million customers every day, in communities right across Canada.
"From marriage proposals to business deals, and from first jobs to second chances, restaurants provide the setting for many special moments in our lives. Canada's anniversary year is the perfect time to celebrate and share those stories," says Restaurants Canada President and CEO Shanna Munro.
All Canadians – restaurant owners, employees, and customers – are invited to share their favourite restaurant moment. Did you land your first job in a restaurant? Work with a restaurant to raise money for a good cause? Did you meet that special someone at a restaurant? Or is the neighbourhood coffee shop your go-to spot for catching up with friends? No matter how big or small the moment is, we want to hear it. Visit www.restaurantscanada.org/makingmoments to learn more.
