Winnipeg Free Press - August 19, 1972

Contracts were signed in short order and then began the search for a new name. Frank Davies came up with A Foot In Coldwater.

“It was quite remarkable really,” Davies allowed. “I’d been speaking to someone on the phone about his recent success and he said that the company was hotter than a foot in cold water. The following week, driving through North Ontario, we came upon a little town called Coldwater, and that clinched it.”
