Enhancing Local Economy in Dawson Creek, BC
A Chopped Leaf restaurant in Dawson Co-Op Mall is a natural fit. Kattie Brigden, Co-Op Marketing Manager, has this to say:
“It’s very exciting for the Co-op to be able to bring Chopped Leaf to Dawson Creek. Quick, healthy food, and a company that shares the same quality and service values that we do; it was exactly what we needed for the Co-op and for the Community.”
The Dawson Co-Op community searched for a healthy addition to their restaurant line up that ensures economic growth close to home, and they found Chopped Leaf. Soon, community members looking for healthy fast casual food alternatives to fit their busy schedules will have to look no further either.
