The Happy Nun Cafe in Forget won the Business of the Year Award for under 20 employees from Tourism Saskatchewan on Nov. 10.
This award was announced via a Facebook live event due to COVID-19, and since Tourism Saskatchewan was unable to hold the actual gala in April. According to the Tourism Saskatchewan website, nearly 90 nominations were received in the 13 award categories that acknowledge quality in marketing, service, business practices, Indigenous tourism, human resource development and other areas.
“This was a welcome happy moment for us with everything go on in the world,” states Gayla Gilbertson, owner of the Happy Nun Cafe.
Weyburn Tourism approached the cafe to ask they were able to nominate them and helped them through the submission process to be entered for this award.
“We appreciate all the friends of the Nun, honestly it is those people that brought us provincial attention by spreading the word about us, it is neat to find out that so many people are aware of us all over the province,” Gilbertson said.
