The Pita Pit® brand, launched in Kingston, Ontario, intends to build on the incredible successes in Montreal and Trois-Rivières to open new quick service restaurants in Quebec, while partnering with like-minded Quebec entrepreneurs.
Pita Pit's 25th anniversary in 2020, and its 20th anniversary in Montreal, this Canadian franchise remains the most successful pita franchise in the world, with 230 locations in Canada and nearly 600 locations worldwide.
In 1995, Pita Pit was already a pioneer in the "healthy eating" arena, offering an innovative restaurant model with "fresh grilled" food. It was a forward-thinking approach to franchise development. At Pita Pit, our vision of REFUSE TO CONTAIN must be shared by our franchisees.
So this opportunity may not be for everyone. Pita Pit has always partnered with exceptional people who strive for excellence, people who are rooted in their communities and who demonstrate strong leadership skills as well as an outstanding work ethic. "In fact, we don't want to partner with candidates who are just looking to open a quick service franchise," said Pita Pit Canada President Kevin Pressburger. "We are on a mission to provide Canadians with fresher, healthier and more appealing meal options.
We believe the time has come to more actively deliver this message to Quebec customers who demand more from their restaurants and want more options on the menu. We believe that our philosophy makes us unique partners and makes our business opportunity fantastic for a like-minded entrepreneur. "Marc Diotte, Pita Pit Canada's Quebec business development manager, added that innovation and thinking outside the box remain at the heart of Pita Pit's business model as the pioneering fast food company moves into a highly competitive and more connected future. "Pita Pit is completely focused on the future and keeping up with the expectations of its restaurant customers.
Our model is already built, we've updated our design and décor, added Yogen Früz desserts and strengthened our partnerships with third-party partners in Quebec such as UberEats.
In 2020, we will expand our digital reach by adding our own online ordering platform and rewards program to offer customers more options, more value, and more often. "Marc Diotte added that the current total investment for a new Pita Pit location is between $291,900 and $365,150, with a $125,000 unencumbered fund required from potential applicants. The royalty to be paid by the franchisee is 5% of sales made, and the contribution to the national advertising fund, which is a low 1% in the industry.
