Rebate Program Supports Restaurants and Bars

GotSkill? President Tony Carvalho: “We are doing what we can to help.”

July 15, 2020 / Vaughan, Ontario -- The Ontario gaming company GotSkill? has introduced a special rebate program that will provide additional revenue to business owner clients planning to re-open their doors in the weeks ahead. Over 250 Ontario bars, restaurants, and entertainment establishments that host the skill-based games will be receiving a 50 percent rebate from GotSkill? commissions up to a cap of $5,000.

GotSkill? president Tony Carvalho unveiled the rebate initiative in an email to his clients earlier this month. He explained that once an establishment reopens for business, they can expect the additional GotSkill? rebate payment every two weeks until September 28, 2020.

Additionally, for any new clients introducing the games into their establishments by December 1st, GotSkill? is providing a similar 35 percent rebate program with a cap of $2,000

“There is a great deal of uncertainty in the hospitality industry and we are doing what we can to help,” says Tony Carvalho. “The rebate program will provide our clients with much needed cash flow in the first months of restarting their business. We hope we can provide a little extra to ensure these local small businesses can keep their doors open.”

Carvalho has been vocal in his support for the hospitality industry, publicly endorsing RISE, the Restaurant Industry Sustainability and Empowerment, and Restaurant Canada’s various initiatives and programs.

GotSkill? games are unique skill-based games played on bartop consoles and at floor cabinets. The games can be found in food, liquor and entertainment establishments across Ontario, from Thunder Bay to Cornwall to Windsor, and in cities across the greater Toronto area. GotSkill? is popular with business owners, as indicated by Bonnie Zufelt, owner of Partners Billiards & Bowling in North Bay. Zufelt comments, My business needed the new influx of cash to help with increased expenses, increased wages, and other things since I installed the machines. With no product or labor costs the games made profit right from the beginning and is such a simple way of generating new found income.”

In a June client survey, 93 percent of establishment owners stated GotSkill? games had a positive financial impact on their business. A total of 80 percent of owners stated the games will play an important part in their re-opening plans.

During the COVID-19 shutdown of the food and entertainment industry in Ontario, GotSkill? representatives have been visiting frontline workers across the Province to show their appreciation and thanks by dropping off coffee, donuts and/or pizza for the staff. GotSkill? has visited hospitals, seniors’ homes, and first responders stations. To view photos of the frontline visits, click on Donations Journal/Gallery on the company website.
