They’ve been doing a lot of work on the new Papa John’s on Fort Street.


Sure is taking awhile. Didn't they start Papa Johns before they started Popeye's?

So as fast as they can make the pizzas they are being eaten.

Deer and Dough bakery has opened on Fairfield in the former cottage Bakery space; it appears they might be sharing some space with Martha’s Delectables?

Matt might find this interesting:

 

 

 

 

 

Beckta, a storied upscale restaurant in downtown Ottawa, was buzzing one recent day — but it wasn't because of diners. The second-floor dining room was converted into an assembly line where staff were packing three-course dinners into paper boxes.

 

Dozens of these kits — with lamb shank confit, prawn lettuce wraps and espresso tarts, along with a wine pairing — stood ready to be delivered to diners' homes by one of the restaurant's in-house drivers.

 

Beckta began offering them in May 2020. They're such a big money-maker that the restaurant cancelled its lunch service and reduced opening hours. It now operates five days a week and is employing a record number of staff.

 

It's even made restaurant work, usually a gruelling affair with long hours, something with some work-life balance, owner Stephen Beckta said.

 

"For me personally now, my workday is probably eight to six most days," he said. "I used to do a lot of nights in the restaurant, so I get to see my family a lot more than I used to."
