Question: How are you supporting other local businesses?
Answer: It only makes sense to use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. In doing so, we are able to consistently achieve that fresh, quality taste that is so beloved by our customers.We work with about 25 local suppliers. Almost 100% of our ingredients – from flour to fruit and eggs and meat is supplied by B.C. suppliers, and the rest are from Canada. We also support local business service providers. About 90% of our services like accounting, bookkeeping, banking, media (advertising, etc.), repair & maintenance, and employee benefits are from B.C. based businesses, and the remaining 10% are from Canadian suppliers.
Question: What social and environmental practices are you proud of?
Answer: We are committed to supporting our community, and we provide many donations to local charities. We donate more than 3% of our annual revenue to community charities. We are also making progress to reduce our environmental footprint.
