Gallery showcases artifacts from McDonald’s past, present and future
Toronto – WEBWIRE – Friday, November 4, 2022
McDonald’s, with more than 1,400 restaurants in Canadian communities, is marking its 55th year in Canada by launching The Gallery of Little Big Things today. The Gallery is a limited time pop-up exhibition recognizing contributions – both big and small – that have made a big impact. The Gallery will showcase artifacts that represent the small changes and milestones people and communities have made from coast-to-coast-to-coast to help serve up a better tomorrow in key areas that matter most to Canadians.
The Gallery is free and open to the public=11.0pt every day from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 3rd until Sunday, November 6th at Stackt Market (28 Bathurst Street, Toronto, ON) in the North Hall and Solarium. For those outside of the Greater Toronto Area, the Gallery will also be available online. To view the immersive virtual walkthrough of The Gallery of Little Big Things, the website is available here.
“The Gallery of Little Big Things is a physical expression of the steps McDonald’s has taken to help serve up a better tomorrow and recognizes how we’ve grown and changed with Canadian communities over the past 55 years,” said Gemma Pryor, Senior Director, Impact Team, McDonald’s Canada. “Every action – no matter how little – has helped to create a big impact; from supporting Canadian farmers & ranchers by sourcing Canadian beef, potatoes, dairy and freshly cracked Canada Grade A eggs, to our friends at Ronald McDonald House Charities that take care of our community members.”
The stories behind the artifacts
Starting with its first restaurant in Richmond B.C. 55 years ago, McDonald’s has always strived to go beyond serving burgers, and to feed and foster local communities. The artifacts, dating from 1967 to present day, tell the stories of the brand’s history in Canada and how it’s played a part in the lives of Canadians from coast to coast to coast.
Love what’s next™
This past summer, McDonald’s Canada launched the Love what’s next™ platform, which announced McDonald’s global and Canadian goals and ambitions that will help drive real and tangible changes for food quality and sourcing communities, the planet and our people. The Gallery of Little Big Things is an extension of Love what’s next by celebrating the big and small changes people and communities have made, while also looking ahead at what’s in store for the brand through an immersive in-person and digital experience.
