Hopscotch was born out of the desire to get more from our food. We wanted sustainably-sourced ingredients, served fresh in environmentally conscious packaging, in a fun and inviting environment. We wanted a restaurant that fed more than just our mouths, but also gave back to the community it was in. We wanted this for everyone, and when we couldn’t find it, we created it. This is the story of Hopscotch.
Our produce is sourced locally whenever possible from farmers we know and trust. We use only Halal chicken, raised in Ontario without antibiotics or hormones, and roasted in-house each day. Every morning our fresh vegetables, fruits, grains and proteins arrive at our door and our team works hard to slice, dice, chop and prepare your food right there. Because food is at its best when it’s freshest.
Sourcing local means we’ve got our eye on the calendar. Our focus on offering seasonal dishes means that they are always changing and always fresh. It’s pretty simple: we build our dishes around the food we can get locally that season, because the best dishes start with the best ingredients first.
From reusing materials in our store builds to simplifying logistics in order to reduce the number of trucks on the road, everything we do at Hopscotch is done with an understanding of our impact on our community and the environment. We use only environmentally conscious packaging, meaning that nearly everything we serve our delicious food in is either made from recycled fibers or plant or potato starch, is completely compostable, or 100% recyclable. We like to think we’re saving the world…one recyclable napkin at a time
Hopscotch is committed to working with local schools in every community we’re a part of. Our first step is donating our opening day proceeds from each of our new restaurants to schools in our community. We follow that up with education about food and sustainability, and helping kids get access to better food. Kids are our future and we’re working to help them live healthier and more balanced lives.
