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.

Our Toronto ‘Hood: Junction Triangle


TuckShop Kitchen is proud to call the growing Junction Triangle neighbourhood home. Since starting construction in our space in September 2014, the area has since developed a unique identity and strong sense of place in Toronto.

Our shop is located at the intersection of Dupont Street and Edwin Avenue in Toronto, close to one of the old Canadian Pacific Railway lines that give the entire Junction area its name. This area derived its name from the fact that it was at the junction of two Canadian Pacific Railway lines. Notably, TuckShop lies within the Junction Triangle area, which is bordered by railway lines on all three sides of its borders.
