CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 23, 2016) - Edo Japan (Edo), an Alberta-based Teppan-style quick service restaurant is ready for a holiday season full of 'Simply Better' giving, starting this year with the inauguration of Double Up Day. In addition to Edo's ongoing holiday giving campaign, which runs through November and December, this one day event will see Edo double the donation amount it sets aside for local food banks throughout the duration of its holiday campaign. Edo has raised more than $363,000 for the Food Bank since 2010.
Double Up Day will take place on December 10, 2016 at all Edo Japan locations nationwide. With every spring roll purchased, Edo will donate 50 cents to local food banks, doubling its traditional holiday season donation of 25 cents for each spring roll purchased throughout the holiday season.
A proud supporter of Canada's food banks, Edo Japan is pleased to donate to this worthwhile cause with the help of its customers for the seventh consecutive year. This year, Double Up Day will call Edo's loyal customers to action in supporting their local food banks with the purchase of spring rolls on this day of double the donations. The more spring rolls purchased on December 10, the more 'Simply Better' support can be given to food banks across the country, making this holiday season at Edo all about community. 25 cents from all spring roll purchases made during Edo's holiday giving campaign, outside of Double Up Day, will continue to be set aside for donation to Canada's food banks.
"Edo has been a long-time partner of local food banks throughout Canada and we are so pleased to be able to carry this tradition into the 2016 holiday season," says Dave Minnett, President and CEO, Edo Japan. "For everyone at Edo, giving back is a very important part of what we do. We are excited to offer our customers a chance to take part in Double Up Day this year as an added way to give back to their communities."
Join the Edo Japan team in supporting Canada's local food banks by purchasing spring rolls from November 7, 2016 until January 1, 2017. For additional information about Edo Japan or to learn more about more Double Up Day and the holiday giving campaign, please visit www.edojapan.com.
