Pita Pit Celebrates Major Milestone: Brand Marks 500 Stores Open Worldwide


Coeur dAlene, Idaho (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

As a reflection of the growing demand for a healthier alternative to fast food, Pita Pit, a provider of deliciously convenient pitas, opened its 500th store worldwide on Saturday June 28, 2014. The international franchisors milestone store is located in Niagara Falls, Ontario; the same Provence that the brand first opened its doors in 1995. To date, Pita Pit has stores in 11 countries including United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, Trinidad and Tobago, India, Brazil, Panama, South Korea and France.

When I rolled the first pita nearly 20 years ago, I envisioned the larger picture but never imagined that Pita Pit would become a globally recognized brand. Weve come such a long way and experienced outstanding growth in the past few years, and I couldnt be more proud to see the opening of our 500th store, said Nelson Lang, Founder of Pita Pit. Without the passion and dedication from our guests, franchisees, corporate team and staff, we would never have been able to reach this remarkable milestone.

After experiencing the most successful growth year to date in 2013, Pita Pit Inc. has increased its focus and enhanced the support for all of its franchisees across the United States. The recognition to equip its most valuable assets, the franchise owners themselves, with all of the support tools they need will help further expansion goals and yield the best customer experience possible.

When I opened my first Pita Pit franchise in Eugene, Oregon in 2000, I saw the innovation and the long term vision and knew I wanted to be a part of the growth. Reaching our 500th restaurant opening is a testament to Pita Pits mission of offering quality food and premium customer service to all those looking for healthier food options, shared Corey Bowman, President of Pita Pit Inc. Weve worked so hard to continue the momentum of our brands national and international growth, and were thrilled to be celebrating this occasion as a global company.

Pita Pit has found a niche in the marketplace by providing top quality, healthy and fresh fast food options among college campuses and cities. The brand offers diners a personally customized experience with their choice of freshly grilled meats, vegetables, zesty sauces and a pita rolled into a unique and delicious package.

Through the hard work from every one of our franchisees, we have been able to excel and become one of the international leaders providing healthy and fresh products to a growing number of Pita Pit fans around the world, Lang said. This is an incredible achievement for Pita Pit and we are thrilled to continue serving our pita fanatics as we add restaurants to new and existing markets globally.
