Apply for Restaurant Rescue

Putting is short and sweet, we want to be Canada’s Restaurant’s lifeline.  We understand the challenges that Canadian restaurants face in these very difficult times. It is estimated that up to half of restaurants nationwide are barely scraping by, with one third projecting to go out of business in the coming one to two years if things don’t improve drastically.

We are a network of passionate individuals with firsthand experience in restaurant operations, food and beverage services, menu design, customer service, small and medium size business financials, web design, Google search, online marketing, among others. Our goal is to equip your restaurant with resources, options and tools designed to help you succeed in our highly competitive industry. We provide customized strategies, tailored to your business' unique needs and goals, and we are here to help you every step of the way.

Our ultimate objective is to help you discover the pathways to succeed, to keep you generating jobs, feeding your community and to have you eventually start expanding!

With well over two decades in hospitality pre-openings, openings, management, planning and design, in hotels and restaurants in 4 continents, both for independent corporations and global brands, I am first-hand acquainted with your challenges and your worries for the future of your business, your team, your customers and your brand and dream. When you call for a rescue, myself and team we will be there with you and absolutely committed to turning things around for you, drawing on my significant experience in the field but most importantly, our joint passion and dedication to your cause. Let's grab a drink or your favorite dish at your restaurant, and let's have a life-changing chat together!

Luis Riestra, 

Managing Director

Restaurants take significant effort and time to grow, a sacrifice that demands all you can give. Imagine suddenly coming across so many more options than you thought you had, and realizing that it is not difficult to have a fantastic website and digital marketing strategy to bring you tons of customers and take-out orders. Or that there are government financing options for your operation you didn’t know you qualified for. Imagine buying new equipment you need in order to expand your menu offer, and that this equipment is freely given to you as a gesture of many communities across the country who want to see you survive and succeed.
