Jake’s Family Restaurant
375 Main St.
Why was it important for you to participate in the façade program?
We wanted to let customers know that we are here, and that we're here to stay! Investing in our business really sends an important message to our community that we aren't going anywhere! The façade program has brought a lot of vibrancy downtown and we wanted to be part of that.
The town has given us an excellent opportunity to make a positive impact on people who live here and visit here. The hardest thing about it was choosing the colours- We wanted it to be aesthetically pleasing, but not 'over the top'- we needed the façade to represent who we are as well.
What impact has your new façade made to your business?
People have really noticed the new look! Regular customers have been talking about it, on Facebook, here in person- all positive comments. Our gorgeous façade has also brought in so many new customers! There were many people who didn't know we were here before- they thought we were a new restaurant. Our staff was so proud of the changes. They were buzzing about it- excited. It gave our staff a boost to their morale.
The great thing is, the façade has gotten people off the street and into the restaurant. Once they're inside, they see what's on the whole menu- that we serve breakfast, seafood, that we are so much more than pizza and donair!
