Taste the World in STC Promotions

Winter Promotions

St. Catharines businesses: join loveSTC’s TASTE THE WORLD IN STC and HOT CHOCOLATE TRAIL AT NO COST and with very little required from you! These two campaigns promote staying loyal to local and supporting neighbourhood restaurants, cafes, bistros, retailers and grocers.

To support business across St. Catharines, loveSTC and the St. Catharines Downtown Association are looking to partner with independent businesses AT NO COST to run several programs highlighting culinary, craft beverage and retail. The Winter Promotions will run from Friday, February 12  to Sunday, March 21 and will include Valentine’s Day, Family Day weekend, St. Patrick’s Day and March Break.

Taste the World in STC & the Hot Chocolate Trail

St. Catharines is full of diverse dining options that offer locals the chance to experience culinary explorations. This winter, loveSTC will be encouraging locals to Taste the World in STC and get away, even if it’s just for dinner.

How it Works

Over a five-week period (Feb. 12 to March 21), restaurants across St. Catharines are invited to participate in Taste the World in STC by featuring a menu item or pre-set meal that highlights culinary heritage and culture.

By offering rewards through a digital passport users can download for free, Taste the World in STC is designed to encourage locals to visit multiple participating restaurants over several weeks through takeout, deliver and in-person dining when permitted.

Hot Chocolate Trail participants can highlight a signature hot chocolate. Every Saturday and Sunday from, Feb. 12 to March 21 loveSTC will encourage locals to explore a different neighbourhood in search of the best cup of cocoa.

Users will collect points for every business they visit through the digital passport for a chance to win loveSTC prizing.

Taste the World in STC  and the Hot Chocolate Trail will be powered by digital marketing, radio advertising and contesting. Participating businesses would need to provide menu item(s) and/or signature hot chocolate beverages to highlight with suggested pairings (local beer, wine, etc.) that can be added to the order. Participating businesses will also help expand the reach by promoting the Winter Promotions through their website, social platforms and restaurant.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no cost to participate and we are not asking for discounts or value items. loveSTC will purchase gift cards from participating businesses to use for prizing.
