McDonald's Restaurants, OntarioMcDonald’s Restaurants of Canada are proud of the food they serve, and have one single purpose: to provide 100% total customer satisfaction. Every day millions of Canadians visit McDonald’s 1,400 plus Canadian restaurants. To help create the “Forever Young” atmosphere in the McDonald’s Restaurants, McDonald’s objective was to update and standardize their audio system in the restaurants. McDonald’s is creating an atmosphere the customer will remember, like a favourite song or movie from their youth, McDonald’s wants its customers to have warm and fond memories of their McDonald’s experience. McDonald’s believes that their audio system is an important component of their core values: Quality, Service, Cleanliness and Value.
The audio systems installed in older McDonald’s restaurants may not be reflecting the “Forever Young” image that McDonald’s wants to portray. An audio system was created for McDonald's that was versatile, easy to operate, durable, reliable and fit the needs of the restaurant, all while conforming to McDonald’s high standards. TOA’s reliable products were selected for the restaurants; including TOA’s 9000 Series Digital Mixer/Matrix Amplifier, and the F Series Ceiling Speakers.

The Colour Mini Dome Cameras are installed throughout the bookstore. With the new security system, McNally Robinson Booksellers are not only able to keep their customers safe and cut down on theft, but are also able to locate moved or misplaced items throughout the store.
All of McNally Robinson Booksellers Winnipeg stores are equipped with TOA’s audio products. The Polo Park location is no exception. The bookstore often hosts special events, music groups, poet readings and book signings. The store required background music and paging for the bookstore and restaurant, but also required areas where they could host audio for the special events. One area is set up in the restaurant, while the other area is in the travel section of the bookstore (where the shelves can be rolled away to make room for speakers, and customers). Mr. Noren used TOA’s A-9000 Series Digital Matrix Mixer/Amplifiers as the main control center. The DA-250 Multi-channel Digital Power Amplifier creates six zones allowing for paging throughout the store and restaurant, background music for the entire facility, and special zones for both special event areas within the bookstore and restaurant. The bookstore is equipped with twenty-six F-122 Ceiling Speakers. In the special events travel area, two F-2000 Wide-Dispersion Speakers complement the F-122 Ceiling Speakers for full coverage of the area. The restaurant boasts TOA’s H-3 Interior Design Speakers, blending into the valance of the high glass walls of the restaurant, looking more like a lighting sconce than a speaker.

Thrifty Foods takes pride in sustainability, ethical trading practices, energy savings, and funding community programs to support a commitment to healthy living. This Grocery store chain in British Columbia takes pride in their stores and community.
Thrifty Foods wanted to create an atmosphere that would make their customers feel relaxed and comfortable while shopping in their stores. They also wanted a reliable and effective way to page their staff and relay important messages to the customers.
Thrifty Foods has been a successful grocery chain. They started with over 20 stores on Vancouver Island. Around 2010 they started to expand to the mainland and continue to grow at a rapid pace. Maintaining customer loyalty and a close relationship was important for both TOA and Thrifty Foods.
To create a background music (BGM) and public address system, Thrifty foods had installed a variety of TOA speakers, amplifiers and paging microphones to suit the specific requirement of each area of the store. Wide Dispersion F Series Ceiling Speakers are used in the speakers throughout the store to provide pleasing BGM. These speakers have a large sound coverage area which results in less speakers being required. Paging horns are being used in warehouse and outdoor areas. The Box Speakers have been installed in clusters of three to provide effective coverage in areas with open ceilings. PM-660U paging microphones are being used to broadcast pages and announcements. TOA’s DA Series Multi-channel Digital Amplifiers and the 9000 Series Modular Digital Matrix Mixer/Amplifier are powering the system providing enough power for the groceries store PA system.

West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton, AB
- Early in 2000, the mall was having problems with their paging system. Customers and employees were having a difficult time understanding the pages and staff often had a challenge getting the page to work. The original speakers were installed approximately 13 feet off of the ground and roughly 30 feet apart, making the sound system unintelligible due to dead spots between speakers. The ceiling speakers were changed to TOA’s popular F Series Ceiling Speakers (F-121). TOA’s Ceiling speakers are unique because they provide wide dispersion making sound more intelligible, without increasing the actual number of speaker locations required. Nearly 800 speakers were replaced throughout the mall in the hallways and common areas, on the upper and lower levels, including some of the public washrooms. Each speaker had to be positioned into a new location within the ceiling because the speakers did not fit into the existing backcans. Installation took several months to complete, but the rewards for the mall were worth the wait.
