We reached out to small businesses to hear their stories on how receiving a $10,000 grant from the CBRN Small Business Relief Fund would affect their business. This is Brian Doherty’s story:
The Old Triangle Irish Alehouse in Halifax, Nova Scotia is facing challenges as a result of the state of emergency that has been in place since March. The 20-year-old business is now working hard to adapt.
If successful, the restaurant would invest the $10,000 in improving their online ordering system in order to continue to serve their community. They would also work to improve the health and safety measures in place, in order to keep everyone safe.
Cheers Brian for your submission, and good luck!
