This promotion is a joint collaboration between over 40 restaurants, the city, and the food delivery app Ritual, where diners can receive $15 towards a meal of almost anything. Simply search "Food Is King" on the app to get started with the promotion.
Despite previous protests against the King Street Pilot Project. The project causing inconvenient access to the diminishing parking spots. Statistics showing a decrease in foot traffic to businesses. Mayor John Tory told reporters that the pilot program is still
"a success for everyone."
With the goal of driving more foot traffic to King Street and enhancing the public transportation experience such as riding street cars. The City has created new initiatives such as the recent design competition to improve public spaces in the downtown core. Tory is hoping that everyone will be used to the new landscape soon.
