Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited is extending its food and beverage operations to include mobile restaurant service with the launch of two food trucks for its MATCH Eatery & Public House brand.
The “Match of the Move” trucks will bring the company’s signature MATCH Eatery food brand to the streets. A media release states that one truck will be based in British Columbia and primarily spend time travelling throughout the Lower Mainland, while the second truck will call Ontario home and spend time mainly in southwest Ontario.
The vision for Match On The Move is to bring the MATCH brand of contemporary pub, which offers a great sporting and entertainment experience, to the communities in which they operate with the familiarity of the bricks and mortar experience.
The menu is inspired by MATCH favourites and will feature items such as Fish N’ Chips tacos, The Whole Hog pork belly sandwich, a Market Chicken salad and sweet treats like the Orange Creamsicle Float and S’mores Fries.
Match on the Move will be found at local hot spots and be available to book for private parties, community events and fundraisers.
“We are extremely excited to expand our popular MATCH Eatery & Public House brand and the opportunity to share it with communities across BC and Ontario,” said Todd Pollock, Gateway’s VP of Food & Beverage. “Further we are looking forward to connecting the truck’s activity with local community groups and charitable organizations to enhance their fundraising efforts – starting with our national partners at Make-A-Wish Canada.”
“We are truly thankful for the partnership that we have with Gateway, and it’s wonderful to see them further invest in the vibrancy of our city,” said Langley City Mayor Val van den Broek. “We congratulate them on the launch of the new Match On The Move food truck and cannot wait for the community to discover this new fun and delicious dining experience.”
Kicking off during the launch festivities and continuing through August 21, GatewayGIVES – Gateway’s community and charitable giving program – is proud to fundraise for Make-A-Wish Canada, a national partner of GatewayGIVES. During the month of July/August, every time customers purchase the Hero Burger a donation will be made to their Wish Heroes Campaign. Gateway will be matching all donations up to $2,000 ($1,000 per truck).
Watch for the truck roaming a neighbourhood near you!
