Currently, registration is open to many restaurants in neighbourhoods that have not participated in previous programs. This extension will allow positive outcome for small and local business owners as they will benefit from this program.
“Small businesses shape our neighbourhoods, and restaurants in particular help define the flavour of our local communities. I can’t think of a better way for all of us to come together than to dine small in support of some of our local faves through the City’s DineTOgether initiative” say Kerri-Ann Santaguida, Vice President and General Manager of Merchant Services, American Express Canada.
Restaurants that participate in this program will offer lunch and dinner feature menus with a main dish, appetizer, or dessert, priced between $15 and $50 in $5 increments. This will accommodate as much restaurant as possible, prices are per person and exclude beverages, taxes, and gratuity.
