COVID 19 Transformation: TuckShop Takeout Window

Read BlogTO’s article on the transformation

During the COVID019 pandemic, the team at TuckShop realized that we needed to remodel our space for 2 reasons:

  • Safety: Helping keep our staff and customers safe
  • Business: Remodeling our business to survive financially

Given the small floor space, we realized that it would be better to remodel our space into a takeout window to provide a safe distance between customers and our staff. 

With the strict COVID-19 measures in place, we could only allow 1 person at a time in our tight indoor space. Even with that it would be questionable depending on the number of staff we had operating in the restaurant at one time.

Happy Burger Day 2018!

Tuck Royale Burger

The origins of Burger Day are unknown. In some places, Burger Day appears to be celebrated in August.  But on the whole, May 28 appears to be widely accepted as International Burger Day. May 28 is roughly the start of grilling season and the Victoria Day long weekend, which makes it an ideal time to celebrate. It’s likely that Burger Day was created by some enterprising soul in the United States, since it’s a similar time to the Memorial Day long weekend, and kicks off the start of Summer grilling season. This gives us some idea of where Burger Day may have originated, but what about burgers themselves?

The Royal Couple: Soup and Sandwich

Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil Soup

Few foods are as comforting as soup. We turn to chicken noodle soup when we’re sick. When you live in a wintry climate, few things beat a hot soup on a cold day. But sometimes soup alone isn’t enough, so what better to pair with a soup than a sandwich? TuckShop Kitchen loves this combination as much as you do and the team serves five of their favourite soups throughout the week. Here’s what makes each soup special:

Happy Grilled Cheese Day!


Tuck Grilled Cheese: Gruyère, swiss and cheddar, spinach, sun-dried tomato chutney, roasted red peppers

It’s warm and soothing, like a savoury and non-liquid version of hot chocolate. Kids love it because it’s an incredibly simple and accessible food. Photographers love it because it’s awesome taking a photo of the moment when you pull the two halves of your grilled cheese sandwich apart and it becomes satisfyingly stringy in the middle. People who don’t know how to cook love it because even they are capable of making a grilled cheese sandwich. But amidst all this love, there’s controversy. Read more
