Burlington’s The Platter Company expands into The Market

The Market grand opening Oct 2020_01

Burlington-based catering business The Platter Company has expanded and opened The Market in Aldershot. Ward 1 Councillor Kelvin Galbraith and I attended their grand opening on Oct. 1.

The expansion allows this local business to further serve the Burlington community and offer more to customers by way of frozen gourmet meals, artisan meats, cheese, fresh bread and more.

This year has posed many challenges for our businesses, particularly the food and catering industry, and it’s inspiring to see how The Platter Company has adjusted and thrived under the new circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s a true testament to the resiliency and creativity of our wonderful Burlington businesses and the community that supports them.

Congratulations to Jacqui Cronin and her team for expanding this business and being agile during this global pandemic. I’m sure our residents will be happy to see this new addition.

I know these are tough and difficult times for our city, so I encourage all of our residents, if they can, to continue supporting our local businesses.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
