TORONTO, May 12, 2020 /CNW/ - After eight long weeks, most of us in North America are now shifting our mindset from crisis mode to recovery mode. Governments and health authorities are releasing reopening plans for our communities. And everyone is feeling the responsibility of getting it right as the world reopens for business.

With almost 15,000 restaurant locations across North America, team members and restaurant owners at Burger King, Tim Hortons and Popeyes have done an incredible job in operating drive-thru, delivery and mobile channels efficiently and safely throughout this crisis. We are now moving into the next phase of reopening dining rooms according to guidance from local authorities and will be welcoming back millions of guests to dine-in at our convenient locations. 

In times of crisis, you rely heavily on what you believe in. We believe in the power of creativity and diversity of perspectives. This means finding ways to do things differently to make them better. And that a wide range of voices and perspectives makes us stronger. Both have been proudly on display during these past weeks.

We also believe in being hard working, good people. To that end, our corporate teams and restaurant owners have contributed millions of dollars to help those impacted by COVID-19, including restaurant team members who have been impacted. I could not be prouder of our teams and our restaurant owners.

Our 30 most senior restaurant leaders from around the world have participated in daily morning calls for the last two months and we have all benefited from the diversity of voices and experiences available to help us quickly navigate so many difficult issues. Our early decision to take the temperatures of all our team members at the start of each shift in North America is just one good example of something we learned from our colleagues in Asia where they are a couple months ahead of us and have learned how to safely reopen dining rooms while giving comfort to our guests.

We have fully embraced the notion that parts of our restaurants need to change – certainly, for the foreseeable future and possibly forever. For instance, while we have mandated masks and gloves in the short-term, our brand and operations teams are now evaluating more comfortable and reusable masks that may become part of our standard uniforms.

We have rapidly scaled our digital capabilities, including adding hundreds of new restaurants onto delivery apps and improving our drive-thru experience, expanding mobile order and pay and curbside pick-up options so that we are both quick and increasingly contactless in your guest experience. There has never been a better time to embrace a business model that serves tens of millions of people a day with speed and limited contact.

As we read all the stories about our communities re-opening, all of the focus is understandably on ways to continue to keep us apart. But one of the most normal things in our lives is coming together. And that often includes sitting down with your family or friends and enjoying a meal together at a restaurant.

We are working very hard to continue to build your confidence in the measures we are taking to keep you safe in our restaurants – so you can more quickly return to a sense of comfort and normalcy in bringing your family inside to sit down for a meal. 

We have acrylic shields and contactless service at most of our restaurants. We are maintaining a 'safe distance' rule in our dining rooms – whether communities require it or not. We have designed beautiful tabletop signage to indicate which tables are open and which ones are reserved to help maintain safe distances. We will be sanitizing tables and chairs after each use and will have hand sanitizer available in the dining room for our guests. We have turned off our self-serve soda fountains and are offering beverages, extra condiments and trays from the behind the front counter. And we benefit from a business model inside our restaurants that has minimal contact with anyone other than your friends and family who you are sitting with.

Our team members worldwide are participating in thorough, rigorous training to ensure that all of our health and safety protocols are well-known and implemented. But equally important, we are reminding all our team members that they play an important role in creating a dining atmosphere that gives you a safe, comfortable and welcoming space to gather with friends and families to enjoy time together over a meal.

So, the next time you walk into a Burger King, Tim Hortons or Popeyes dining room, we will proudly welcome you back – and our restaurant owners and their incredible teams are looking forward to serving you responsibly and safely, as we have throughout and especially during the crisis.

I am very proud of everyone in the Burger King, Tim Hortons and Popeyes families for your hard work, and your positive, responsible approach through the crisis and now into phases of recovery. I believe we have the right balance between implementing essential procedures for the here and now, as well as pursuing our long-term vision of building the most loved restaurant brands in the world. And that includes re-establishing confidence and comfort in the dine-in restaurant experience. More to come.

With all my best wishes and thanks,

Jose Cil
CEO, Restaurant Brands International

Sainte-Thérèse, May 8, 2020 – Cora Breakfast and Lunch is launching an all-new product category: the Cora Breakfast BoxTM. In just a few clicks, customers can get all the delicious Cora ingredients to put on a spread that will impress the entire family.

This sumptuous breakfast, which takes no time to prepare, will feed at least four people. The boxes come in four versions, to satisfy every family’s tastes: meat lovers, sweet lovers, French toast lovers and savoury crêpe lovers. There is a box to please every household!  

“It’s a great solution for families who want to avoid going out during this pandemic. And who knows, perhaps the idea will take hold and become popular among families who enjoy staying in their pyjamas,” explained Cora Tsouflidou, founder of Cora Breakfast and Lunch.

The Breakfast Boxes can be ordered 24 hours in advance for take-out or delivery through SkipTheDishes from any participating Cora restaurant.

Note that in addition to the Cora Breakfast BoxTM, several restaurants also offer delicious Cora dishes as well as several homemade products, for either take-out and/or delivery.

To Our Valued Guests: 

The news of the loosening of restrictions for businesses is exciting, but like so many of you, we are keenly aware of the safety of our employees and our guests. We want to get this right, so before we make any moves to open our beautiful patio or the in-house dining, we are awaiting a little more concrete guidance from Chief Public Officer Dr. Roussin about how to do that safely. We are excited to see you again when we are sure the time is right. 

In the meantime, one of our favourite days of the year is coming up: Mother’s Day. Every year, we anticipate seeing your families and sharing in the celebration of Moms. This year, we celebrate the strength of mothers who are working so hard to keep their families safe, soothe their children’s worries, all while juggling working from home, making sure that homeschooling assignments are getting done, and reinforcing restrictions that many little ones just don’t understand. We are also missing hugging our Moms who are self-isolating due to vulnerabilities or residence in long-term care or hospital.

While we rightfully celebrate our mothers every year, this year seems especially fitting to give them their due. Thank you to all of the Moms out there. We couldn’t get through any of this without you.

- Doug Stephen, President, WOW! Hospitality Concepts

TORONTO, May 6, 2020 /CNW/ - Keto Buns Ltd. doing business as Unbun Foods Inc. ("Unbun" or the "Company"), a Toronto-based bakery company and leader in grain free, gluten free, keto friendly products, announces that on March 13, 2020 and May 4, 2020, it raised approximately $1.9 Million in aggregate gross proceeds through a private placement (the "Offering") of units of the Company (the "Units"). Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, and each such warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share upon payment of the exercise price. The Offering was led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. ("Canaccord"), an independent full-service financial services firm with a global footprint.

Unbun has quickly established itself as a North American leader in creating innovative and delicious better-for-you bakery products.  By developing grain-free, gluten-free, keto, paleo, and plant-based bakery products, Unbun has brought consumers back to food products that they had left, and enables them to enjoy their favourite foods once again.  Since its founding in 2018, the Company has experienced rapid growth and has distribution in more than 2,500 locations across Canada and the U.S.

"Unbun has experienced explosive demand for its products and incredible growth since launch," says Unbun founder, Gus Klemos. "This investment is a sign that there is a growing appetite in the market for innovative products that meet a range of dietary requirements and preferences to help support a balanced lifestyle. Unbun will continue to develop new products and ramp up production to bring our better-for-you options to even more consumers."

The proceeds of the Offering will allow Unbun to increase production capacity, and support operations, supply chain and manufacturing infrastructure that will ensure the Company meets the increasing demand for its products from restaurant partners, grocery retailers and consumers.
