Impact Kitchen Relaunches With New Tech Suite and Ordering App

The new loyalty app enables customers to order, pay, and collect points while directly supporting Impact Kitchen

Toronto-based health food restaurant Impact Kitchen has reopened all four of its locations with the launch of its new and streamlined full tech suite and new customer loyalty app, Impact App. Known for their paleo, gluten free, keto, and vegan health food options, Impact Kitchen has grown a loyal community of Torontonians who keep coming back for the incredible service and quality ingredients.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201006005028/en/

The restaurants, which closed temporarily at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, reopened in July with updated restaurant technology from leading restaurant technology provider Givex. The new technology includes digital menu screens, Point of Sale systems, kitchen sequence systems, and online ordering. These systems are designed to create a contactless restaurant experience with the ultimate goal of enhancing safety, improving the customer experience and fostering the Impact Kitchen community.

“We’re thrilled to be back open and serving our community with a place to safely connect with one another while having access to the high-quality health food our customers were used to before we temporarily shut down,” said Josh Broun, Co-Founder of Impact Kitchen. “Before COVID hit, we were looking for ways to consolidate our tech suite so we would be well-poised for the aggressive growth plans we’d put in place. During our temporary shutdown, we saw a great opportunity to streamline our restaurant technology to enable Impact Kitchen to grow quickly once we reopened and create an even better experience for our customers.”

In addition to the new in-house technology, Impact Kitchen has also launched its first-ever loyalty app through Givex’s Customer WebSuite. The app enables customers to order directly from Impact Kitchen online, bypassing the third party delivery apps, and complete payment online, creating a completely contactless order and pay experience. With each purchase, app users are building up loyalty points that can be redeemed for monetary value and rewards.

“The launch of our app is improving the remote experience for our community while the enhanced technology in-house is creating a more seamless experience at our restaurants,” said Broun.

The updated technology has enabled Impact Kitchen to plan for significant growth in the coming months. Impact Kitchen launched a new business stream with the introduction of grocery delivery in July. The company is poised for growth in the coming months with plans to open additional locations within the next year.

“We’ve seen a huge increase in demand for contactless payment options since the beginning of the pandemic,” said Brittain Brown, President of restaurant technology company Givex. “We recently launched an app, which is now in operation with Impact Kitchen, that enables restaurants to connect directly with their customers, sidestepping the third-party delivery apps, and creating value for customers while serving as a contactless payment solution. The reception has been overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to supporting more restaurants with this technology.”

Home Improvement Loans and Grants | Health Impact in 5 Years | Health System Transformation | AD for Policy

What are home improvement loans and grant interventions?

Home improvement loan and grant programs provide funding for low-income families to repair their homes, make improvements, and remove health and safety hazards.[1] These programs can be one part of a broader home or housing improvement initiative or focused on specific issues such as heating and insulation, lead, or mold.[1] The purpose of the intervention is to enable low-income homeowners to improve the safety and habitability of their homes.

These home improvement loan and grant programs can be implemented at the local, state, or federal levels.[1] Examples of states using these types of programs include Maryland and Minnesota. Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development administers the EmPOWER Low Income Energy Efficiency Program, which assists low-income homeowners in making household improvements that reduce energy use and may improve air quality.[2] Minnesota’s Housing Finance Agency administers a Rehabilitation Loan/Emergency and Accessibility Loan Program with the stated purpose of “assisting low-income homeowners in financing basic home improvements that directly affect the safety, habitability, energy efficiency, or accessibility of their homes.”[3] Federal programs that facilitate the provision of loans or grants to homeowners for repairs and improvements include the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Single Family Housing Repair Loans & Grants program[4], and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Rehabilitation Mortgage Insurance program.[5]

CDC’s EXHALEpdf icon package features evidence-based strategies to improve asthma control and reduce healthcare costs, including policy information about home weatherization assistance programs.

What is the public health issue?

Many internal housing conditions, such as temperature, dampness, the presence of lead paint, and other safety hazards, can influence health.[6, 7] Lower income families are at a higher risk for living in unhealthy housing conditions.[7] The Environmental Protection Agency found that Americans spend on average 87 percent of their time indoors, almost 69 percent of which is in a residence.[8] Evidence shows that one primary health outcome associated with housing is respiratory health.[9] Cold and damp conditions within the home may lead to or worsen respiratory health issues. [6, 9] In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found that there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, coughing, and wheezing in otherwise healthy people; with asthma symptoms in people with asthma; and with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition. The IOM also found suggestive evidence linking indoor mold exposure and respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children.[10]

What is the evidence of health impact and cost effectiveness?

Home improvements that address warmth and energy efficiency, such as weatherization to improve insulation, air quality, and dampness, have been most strongly associated with health benefits, particularly where household members suffer from existing chronic respiratory disease.[11] Multiple systematic reviews and studies examining the evidence for the impact of home improvement interventions on health found

  • Improvement in general health status [11-15]
  • Improvement in respiratory health[11, 12, 14, 15]

How to elevate a small, urban plot for maximum impact

A colleague recently enlisted my advice about replanting the front and side yards of his Capitol Hill townhouse. Thankfully, there was little existing vegetation (or he had cleared it already) and it was spared the tired, overgrown fate of many small urban yards.

We are entering prime season for renovating landscapes, and his project got me thinking about what folks need to know about successful makeovers and why so many small gardens go wrong. Before speaking to the right way, let’s imagine the ravages of time on a city garden the size of my colleague’s. His corner lot features an entrance garden of about 20 by 20 feet, bisected by a brick path. The connected side yard is about six feet wide and 25 feet long.

This blank slate seemed primed for a wholesale replanting that would grow into a fresh, beautiful and deeply satisfying landscape. Such a garden would stand out too against all those urban lots whose plantings had grown to blur the original spatial relationships and design intent.

Typically, hedges planted when the “Jurassic Park” film franchise cranked up in 1993 have become themselves menacing dinosaurs. They were originally intended to define the property or to provide screening but are now too broad at the top and too thin at the bottom. Similarly, both deciduous and evergreen shrubs expand into paths and shade out other plants around and beneath them. Time flies, time fudges.

Large trees provide their own conundrum. You don’t want to take down a mature shade tree — and in some jurisdictions are constrained from doing so — but at the same time you shouldn’t live under a constant gloom of shade and tree litter. (The worst offender might be a Southern magnolia.) Often, you can remove the lowest limbs and thin out the canopy to reclaim space and light. This can go badly wrong in several ways, though, and is a job for a competent and qualified certified arborist.

All gardens sag with time, all gardens need constant tweaking and adjustment, but ones that are put together with careful consideration of plant choices will age slowly and even gloriously. After removing old vegetation from the site (and improving the soil) consider my general principles for planting in small gardens:

Don’t plant for instant effect. Perennials and grasses take two to three years to reach established size, ground covers can take as long or longer to fill in, and trees and shrubs should take at least five years to have any real presence. Anything rushed or planted too thickly will come back to bite you. Central to the last point is this: Don’t plant fast-growing trees and shrubs. A variety with an annual growth rate of more than 12 inches (high or wide) would raise a flag to me.

Reduce the number of prospective ornamental trees and shrubs, and regard each one you do plant as a piece of sculpture, to be positioned and spaced with utmost consideration.

Right pop of color makes big impact for small price

When you’ve been writing about home design for as long as I have, certain expressions really begin to wear — like “bring the outdoors in.” Please, living in the tropics with three dogs, I spend a good amount of time taking the outdoors back out, sticks, mud, mosquitoes, frogs. Another worn expression is “then just add a pop of color.”

Next time I hear a designer say, “just add a pop of color,” I’m afraid I’ll say right back, “I’ll give you a pop of color. Where would you like it?”

I’m sorry, but the words “just” and “color” don’t belong in the same sentence. First of all, picking a background wall color is already triple-black-diamond difficult, but selecting a look-at-me accent color,
that perfect-pitch purple pillow, is way harder. And would someone please define ‘pop’? I picture the living room after a game of paintball.

So when a design friend of mine recently introduced me to Minneapolis designer Lucy Penfield and said her specialty was “living in color,” I thought maybe she could help me with my pop predicament. So I called her up. In under three minutes, words like azalea, parrot green, peacock, mango and jalapeño were punctuating our conversation. The woman can talk color, all right.

“Color is experiential,” Penfield said. “It’s about energy and the feelings it brings to your soul. It can lift the spirt, calm the mind, sweep you away or ground you. It can evoke a mood or change one.”

“I want some of that,” I said.

We talked about her new collection of exuberant throw pillows for Missio Home, which is designed to add, you guessed it, pops of color to a room. Then I peppered her with my pressing color questions:

Q: I get so tired of hearing designers tell me to add a pop of color. It sounds so easy, but it’s definitely an art. Can you offer some guidelines?

A: Be brave. Realize that rooms come alive when they have a color surprise. The pop can be small, like a red bowl, or large, like a turquoise accent wall. The idea is to add something unexpected that introduces a
little whimsy. Start with a baby step. If that resonates, go bigger and bolder.

Q: What makes you wince when you walk into a home?

A: An expressionless home that is void of color. The rooms feel so lifeless and sad. Many people have homes like this because they feel safe. My heart drops, and I just want to say, “Honey, you can do it. Try it. It’s just a throw pillow or a vase on the table.”

I also feel sad when I see homes where the owners felt compelled to do their whole house in gray, because that’s what was in style, though it never felt right to them because they didn’t go with the green they loved. I wish more people would use their own rudder to steer them to the colors they love, not
what’s in.

Small Kitchen Renovations for Maximum Impact

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home and when it comes to remodeling a kitchen it can cost an awful lot of money. Some people will go through with a pricey renovation that puts them without a kitchen for weeks on end for the big payoff at the end, but what if you just can't afford a major re-do?

Luckily there are minor things that you can do that will spruce up that kitchen and pull it into the current decade. Usually, people can tell the age of your home by what's on the walls. If your kitchen is full of wallpaper and / or wallpaper border it may be time to freshen it up. Paint those walls and get creative, with that old and dated paper gone the difference will be amazing!

Change those kitchen cabinets. Refinishing just the cabinets can freshen up a whole space. Yes, it's a bit time consuming but it is way cheaper than a full renovation and best of all you can do the work yourself.

If you can't change the cabinets, a smaller fix is ​​to change the cabinet hardware. There are literally thousands of pulls and knobs to choose from that will bring that outdated kitchen up to where it belongs. Be sure to measure the holes in the old hardware though, so you can match them up with new or make sure the new covers them up.

A new tap is a great idea to spruce up a kitchen. Get one with a veggie sprayer and you're good to go! They too come in all sorts of colors and designs that will leave you wondering why on earth you did not change it up sooner.

If you hate your counter tops and can't afford brand new, there is always the option of having someone come in to fit new tops over the old, but if that's not an option, there is special paint you can buy just for counters. Add a splash of color and watch that kitchen pop!

How about a new fan or lighting fixture? Those outdated ones have got to go, and there are so many new and fabulous styles out there that finding a new one will be a fun and easy experience. You don't even need to be an expert electrician to install that new fan or light, they're easy to do.

Don't keep looking at that old kitchen, spruce it up today!
