Don and Laurie Riley are the model of resilience, proving that no matter what comes, they will persevere.
Rileys Grill in Bobcaygeon had a rocky start to their much-anticipated grand opening, facing immediate business limitations when COVID-19 hit; making the most of their situation they quickly adapted by offering takeout and deliveries, and were just gearing up for patio service when an early morning fire rampaged their building on June 24th, 2020.
The devastating fire, which resulted in an estimated $1 Million worth of damage, left the couple wondering what was next for their restaurant located at 50 Canal St. Bobcaygeon; but as the Riley’s have proven, they are up for the challenge of dealing with whatever may come.
With a slight revision to their regular menu the Rileys have purchased a mobile kitchen which allows them to continue offering takeout and delivery to their loyal community under the same name, with the same great food and service.
The kitchen will be open four days a week; 4PM to 7PM on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and 12PM to 7PM on Saturdays, with the idea to extend their hours as business commands.
Contactless service means safe dining, and those who would like to order can call 705 738 1802. Watch also for an online ordering option in the near future where customers can order and pay in advance. The Rileys team will continue to offer free deliveries in Bobcaygeon.
A true community business has risen from the ashes.
Congratulations to the team at Rileys – we look forward to seeing what your bright future will bring.
