(Benny&Co. Canada Day delivery. The restaurant staff celebrated Canada Day by giving back to the community and delivered 75 meals to local charities.)
Canada Day is always a busy and profitable day for Benny&Co. and the hospitality sector. July 1, 2020 was an especially important day given the operating challenges businesses face as a result of COVID-19. But instead of focusing all the staff and resources on operating their new restaurants in Stittsville and Orleans, Benny&Co. believed it was more important to first give back to the community that has supported the company throughout the pandemic.
On Canada Day, Benny&Co. donated 75 meals to individuals living with mental illness and addiction and women living in a west-end Ottawa shelter to flee domestic violence.
(The kitchen staff were kept busy preparing the 75 meals being donated by Benny&Co. to charities in the Ottawa area on Canada Day.)
“Like many businesses in Ontario, we had to shut our restaurants for the safety of our employees and customers. We are happy to report that, after three months, Benny&Co. recently reopened in Stittsville and Orléans, and all our employees have returned to work. At Benny&Co., we believe that community comes first. Even though Canada Day celebrations were very different this year, we wanted to show our Canadian pride by giving back to the Stittsville community that has supported us through thick and thin, by serving them complimentary portions of our tasty rotisserie
(Jean-Christophe Benny could be found on Canada Day assisting with delivery of 75 Benny&Co. meals to local charities, including Chrysalis House.)
Benny&Co. believes in putting community first and that is why the company made donations to the Montfort Renaissance and to Chrysalis House.
The Stittsville location of Benny&Co. also donated a $50.00 gift card to the virtual Canada Day contest held by the Stittsville Village Association. Farisha Irshad and family were the lucky winners of the gift card for submitting a photo of her 12-year old son’s patriotic creation of a Canada Day wreath for the family’s front door.
