The Colours Cafe – UPDATED

March 25, 2014

The Take-A-Break Cafe will soon be the Colours Cafe – run entirely by Rainbow’s End!

We will soon be taking the reigns of this new and exicitng social enterprise.  With guidance from our Board of Directors, we are excited to make the absolute most of this opportunity!

What’s Changing?

  • RECDC will now be running all of the operations of the Cafe
  • The Cafe will be located in the new building at St. Joseph’s West 5th site
  •  We will be offering a wider selection of products

How will this affect Rainbow’s End?

In terms or how Rainbow’s End functions – nothing will change. We will be able to hire more employees and keep them on staff year round. This is important for Rainbow’s End as most of our businesses are seasonal in nature.
