The Markham community has shown an outpouring of support for local business Wuhan Noodle 1950 in the last couple of days, after the restaurant reportedly faced discrimination related to the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China.

Notable faces from the city including politicians, educators, and restaurant CEOs have shared images of the packed eatery on social media, and commented on the “delicious” food.

Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti said that it was heartwarming to see the community support the establishment, while sharing a photo of his noodle bowl. He described the spot as “busy and bustling.”

President and CEO of Centennial College, Dr. Craig Stephenson recently dropped in as well, as did the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion, and International Trade, Mary Ng.

Stephenson said the food was “super,” and Ng called Wuhan Noodle one of her favourite restaurants.

Mohamad Fakih, the CEO of Paramount Foods – who has a track-record for doing good by small, local businesses — also stopped by.

The restaurant took to its Instagram account — which shows its first image posted only six days ago — to thank guests for coming to support them.
