One of Canada’s fast food chains has started using hockey sticks in an effort to practice social distancing with their customers.
Harvey’s has teamed up with Bauer Hockey and is attaching its point-of-sales machines to the blade of hockey sticks and using them to keep a safer distance between drive-thru customers and restaurant employees.
A portion of drive-thru sales proceeds will also be donated to Food Banks Canada.
David Colebrook, the CEO of Harvey’s said, “Only in Canada would we use our iconic hockey sticks to ensure everyone stays safe at a physical distance while buying their Harvey's burgers.”
“It's a creative and fun solution to a challenging issue. And it ensures we can keep feeding Canadians through our restaurants and food banks.”
Mary-Kay Messier, Bauer Hockey’s Vice President of Global Marketing said, “We're all one team in combating COVID-19 and in helping to keep one another as safe as possible during this pandemic.”
“Until hockey re-starts, we're glad to put our sticks to good use.”
Bauer has also been producing face shields to assist medical professionals in their fight against coronavirus.
