Founded in 1995, Pita Pit is a quick service restaurant chain serving healthy and fresh food with a friendly informal atmosphere and a varied as well as flavourful menu.
When Pita Pit began back in 1995, Braveheart was the Best Picture, Seinfeld was all the rage, the Worldwide Web was just taking off and the DVD was new and a major innovation.
So was the idea that drove Nelson Lang and John Sotiriadis to open their first Pita Pit in Kingston, Ontario. Nelson and John were convinced that the time was right to offer a fresh, healthy alternative to traditional high-fat, high-carb, high-calorie fast foods in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Their Lebanese-style pita sandwiches packed with fresh veggies, freshly grilled meats and zesty sauces were an instant hit.
Within two years, franchise stores had begun opening right across Canada and the USA.
In 2009, it was ranked #1 in its category on the Franchise 500 list.
The past few years has also seen Pita Pit spreading it's international footprint across various countries such as France, Australia, New Zealand and the UK to name a few, with a total count of over 450 stores worldwide.
Clearly, Pita Pit’s “Fresh Thinking, Healthy Eating” motto is an idea whose time has come.
