New Map App Promotes Wellington County Restaurants & Food Businesses

For Immediate Release - February 12, 2021 

Residents have a new tool available to search for restaurants and food  businesses offering ready-to-eat takeout food in Wellington County. 

A new online map shows takeout  locations across all seven member municipalities. Users can further narrow down their search by  mealtime and the type of food they are looking for. 

The ‘Takeout Food in Wellington County’ map created by the County’s Planning and Economic  Development Departments, aims to promote purchasing takeout food from local restaurants and food  businesses that had to close due to the province-wide shut down. These businesses will also have  limited seating capacity during the re-opening phases. 

"Restaurants and some food businesses have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic,” said  George Bridge, Wellington County’s Economic Development Committee Chair. "Ordering takeout food is  a great way to support these businesses and keep them in our communities."  

According to Restaurants Canada, almost half of small and medium-sized independent restaurants are in  danger of closing permanently if conditions do not improve. 

To further promote the map and takeout food options, users are encouraged to share photos of their  takeout food on social media using the hashtag #takeoutwellington for a chance to win one of seven 50 dollar gift cards to local restaurants. 

The map and contest information can be found at Businesses wishing to  be added to the map or edit their details can submit their information to the website. 


The County of Wellington is located in south-western Ontario just over 100 kilometres west of Toronto along Highway 401.

The County is made up of seven member municipalities including the Town of Erin, Town of Minto, Township of Wellington North, Township of Mapleton, Township of Centre Wellington, Township of Guelph/Eramosa and the Township of Puslinch.
