Toronto – Pizza Hut® Canada is celebrating a successful first year of its Equal Slice Program, having supported more than 50 small businesses across the country. In partnership with Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), the Equal Slice Program provides free education, virtual training and mentorship opportunities specifically to minority, immigrant, Indigenous, and disabled-owned small businesses throughout Canada. Five deserving participants received a $20,000 grant to help grow and strengthen their business.

“We were inspired to start the Equal Slice Program to support small business owners across Canada and ensure they have access to the education, training and resources they need to succeed,” said Tatiana Carrascal, president and general manager of Pizza Hut Canada. “We’re excited to be able to support minority business owners to further drive equality in the Canadian business landscape.”

Year One of the Equal Slice Program welcomed more than 50 minority business owners from across Canada.
