EDMONTON, Sept. 11, 2020 /CNW/ - To celebrate Pizza 73's 35th anniversary, pizza-lovers will be able to enjoy their favourite small recipe pizzas for only $7.35! The offer includes the Meat Supreme, Vegetarian, Hawaiian, and Grand Slam, and will be available until September 20th.

"Thirty-five years is an incredible milestone in the restaurant industry, and we are so proud of the franchisees, staff and partners that make the Pizza 73 family so special. Their passion for providing high quality pizzas, delicious chicken wings, safe delivery and great customer service at the highest standards is at the heart of everything they do," says Chief Operating Officer Philip Goudreau. "I want to personally share my deep appreciation to everyone for their outstanding work. Their drive, coupled with their involvement in local communities and the relationships they've built, will ensure we continue to serve guests for another thirty-five years."

When the first Pizza 73 opened in Edmonton in the autumn of 1985, pizza was either cheap or it was quality. Pizza 73 was determined to be known for the reliable delivery of great quality pizza at budget-friendly prices. Thirty-five years later, Pizza 73 continues to "deliver" on those same marks; with high quality Canadian ingredients, safe and reliable delivery and great value to feed the family.

And while no one knows the exact "secret ingredient" to what's made Pizza 73 a favourite of Western Canadians, innovation has been a big factor. As Calgary operating partner Gurnam Sidhu says, "Pizza 73 has been reliable, advanced and flexible in our technology. We were the first in Alberta to launch a central call centre taking orders and we've continued to move with the times, launching our online ordering, then our apps, all while ensuring the best customer experience."

Another key to our success: the heart of our incredible staff and customers. The Souky family, long-time operating partner in Edmonton, put it best: "Pizza 73 has been in our family's life for the last 30-plus years. As a family, we came together and worked hard to create not only a legacy but memories that have brought us together and formed a bond. We take pride in serving our customers and providing them not only with the best quality food, but service from our heart. This is truly where the secret to our success lies over the years. We came together as a family and led the way with our dedication, hard work, and most of all our love."

And who could deny our delicious, freshly baked-in-store dough? A great tasting pizza starts with dough, and we make it fresh every day then pour on your toppings of choice for a mouth-watering, affordable pizza every time.

Steam Whistle and American craft brewing pioneer New Belgium Brewing are partnering again to bring the distinctive Voodoo Ranger IPA to the Canadian marketplace. Steam Whistle will brew Voodoo Ranger IPA at its Etobicoke facility and market and distribute one of the U.S. fasting growing IPAs.

The new agreement builds on a successful partnership between the two beer producers, which saw Steam Whistle begin brewing and marketing New Belgium Brewing’s Fat Tire Amber Ale in Canada in 2019.

“Our breweries share a lot in common in terms of our commitment to quality, sustainability and our desire to make one-of-a-kind products that consumers can get anywhere else,” says Tim McLaughlin VP Marketing at Steam Whistle. “We’ve worked together very well over the past two years expanding the market for Fat Tire, so this new agreement allows us to develop that relationship even further with a fantastic new beer in Voodoo Ranger IPA.”

Voodoo Ranger is a golden IPA that combines tropical aromas and juicy fruit flavours from Mosaic and Amarillo hops. Light golden and bright with a little particulate and medium-thin white foam. Voodoo Ranger packs a perfectly bitter bite and a refreshing finish.  Voodoo Ranger IPA is 7.0 % ABV with an IBU of 50.

VAUGHAN, ONSept. 9, 2020 /CNW/ - Harvey's is digging deeper into its commitment to sustainability with a new, family-friendly initiative that gives kids the chance to play their part in supporting the environment.  Rolling out across Canada today, the Harvey's Grow a Plant program will provide a plant kit with every kid's meal purchased with over a million plant kits expected to be given away annually.

In lieu of a plastic toy, kids will receive a sunflower or nasturtium plant kit that they can care for at home either indoors or outdoors. Plant types will change with the seasons in the future, and all kits will come with care instructions.

"We are always looking at our operations with a sustainability lens and asking ourselves how we can do better in reducing waste, limiting our carbon footprint and playing our part to help keep Canada a beautiful thing," said David Colebrook, Chief Operating Officer, Harvey'sCanada. "Providing plants instead of plastic toys in our kid's meals is a fun, eco-friendly way to involve the next generation in our efforts."

Grow a Plant is the latest effort from Harvey's in its long-term commitment to reduce single-use plastics and source from sustainable, recycled materials for as many items as possible. The brand's commitment to reducing waste can be seen in its recent changes to more sustainable product and packaging options that has already impacted approximately 80% of all packaging.

In addition to being one of the first QSRs to move to paper straws in early 2019, all Harvey's burger wrappers, poutine boxes and takeout and delivery bags are made from recycled paper. Condiment cups are made out of 100% bamboo while all shake cups and cutlery are made from 100% recycled materials.

While it continues to increase its sustainable packaging initiatives, Harvey's has also made significant strides in its commitment to beef sustainability. Harvey's only sources 100% Canadian Beef, and supports sustainable sourcing practices through its partnership with the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef.
