STE-THÉRÈSE, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 15, 2012) - Cora Franchise Group, Inc., On Tuesday February 21st, Canada's breakfast leader will be proud to celebrate its first National Pancake Day! On this day, every customer that visits our restaurants across Canada to enjoy either our pancakes, or our sweet or savoury crepes can feel good about themselves. Not only will they enjoy an amazing breakfast but also feel good knowing that they are helping children across Canada.
The Cora Foundation will donate $1 from the sale of every plate sold to the Breakfasts Clubs of Canada thus further enabling them to provide nutritious breakfasts to children across Canada.
"Given the existence of the Cora Foundation and the fact that we are Canada's Breakfast leader, the connection with National Pancake Day is an incredible opportunity for us to lever. This is a great event and a worthy cause, both of which are aligned with our market leader positioning and brand objectives, and we're excited by the possibilities for all." states David Polny, Executive Vice-President Cora Franchise Group.
The Cora Foundation established in the early part of 1998. The Cora Foundation's mission is to aid children in need. The Foundation supports and works in collaboration with non-profit organizations trying to improve the quality of life for Canadian children. The Foundation is financed through the profits generated by fundraising events as well as through special events created by employees and the owners of the more than 125 franchised restaurants across Canada. Over the last years, the Foundation has been working very closely with the Breakfast Clubs of Canada and the Club des petits dejeuners du Quebec to help provide support and food to children across the country.
