The penny drops Feb. 4 – Are you ready?


(Jan. 16/13) In response to CRFA’s lobbying for a more robust consumer campaign to educate restaurant customers about the end of the penny, the federal government has provided a consumer information bulletin and a toolkit for businesses.

What you need to do
It is critical that restaurant operators review, circulate and post (close to cash registers) the information bulletin (PDF) provided by the government. This bulletin needs to be posted now so that customers are not taken by surprise on Feb. 4, when rounding officially begins across the country.
