ELORA, ON — Grand River Raceway is proud to announce that our organization has been named on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces in Retail and Hospitality. Grand River Raceway received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada.

The list is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. Grand River Raceway was eligible for this list as our organization was recently certified as a Great Place to Work® in 2019.

The Elora, ON track offers seasonal horse racing and year-round gaming, dining, entertainment and Meetings & Events Services. Its award-winning Retail & Hospitality service offers versatile facilities, unique amenities and a gorgeous location for any event. The Meetings & Events staff have coordinated and hosted thousands of bookings and gatherings of all shapes and sizes for hundreds of different occasions and industries.

“This recognition comes on the heels of the ground-breaking of our $4 million renovation to expand our award-winning hospitality services,” said Jamie Martin, Director of Operations. “We’re very much looking forward to offering our guests grand meeting and event spaces and a larger raceway restaurant when renovations are completed this summer.”

Grand River Raceway has received several awards since its inception in 2003, including the 2016 Business Excellence Award in the Hospitality/Tourism Award category, presented by the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber Of Commerce (GKWCC).
