SUDBURY -- Two established restaurant brands in Canada are acknowledging the efforts of front-line workers dealing with the COVID-19 crisis.

Government healthcare workers and first responders will receive 50 percent off orders when ordering take-out or drive-thru.

"First responders are working countless hours to help keep Canadians safe and healthy, and we wanted to support them and their families," said David Colebrook, Chief Operating Officer, Harvey's Canada.

"We thank our front-line health care workers - you are the heroes right now and we are here for you," added Ron Simard, Chief Operating Officer, Swiss Chalet.

All front-line workers can take advantage of this offer by simply showing credentials to staff.

"Our dining room seating is currently closed, but our drive-thru and takeout are still open, so you can maintain social distance and pick up a bite to eat for yourself and your family after a long day," said Colebrook.
