Pita Pit was founded in 1995 by Nelson Lang and he set up his very first restaurant in Ontario, Canada. He was driven by a desire to offer a healthier alternative to fast food that still retained all of the convenience and fantastic taste. His successful ‘fresh thinking’ concept quickly made the restaurant a success and within three years Pita Pit was franchising across Canada, shortly followed by the United States just two years later. The franchise now has more than 600 restaurants spanning the world and is looking for master franchisees for new territories to bring its delicious wraps to even more people across the globe.
Its delicious menu features a huge range of meats, salads and tasty sauces than can be customised any way possible. Every tempting filling is available rolled in one of Pita Pit’s freshly made pita wraps or piled on top of lots of fresh, crunchy vegetables if you’re looking for a lighter option. Fillings vary around the globe as the franchise adapts its menu for each country to offer the best options for each customer base, but they’re all packed with flavour and free of the guilt of most fast food options.
How much is a Pita Pit franchise?
You’ll need a fair amount of spare cash if you’re looking to become a Pita Pit franchisee, as the franchise requires a hefty investment from its partners. Estimated initial costs are between $215,000 and as much as $500,000 for large premises in particularly attractive areas, meaning its an opportunity best suited to those who have plenty of money to invest or have other successful business ventures already.
Pita Pit UK Franchises
Pita Pit has ventured onto our shores in the past, with branches in Manchester and London, but it seems the people of the UK didn’t take to the franchise as well as those overseas have. All of its previously operational locations no longer exist and the franchise has removed its UK franchisee page from the website, indicating it’s not pursuing UK locations any longer.
However, if you’re looking for a similar opportunity, or simply one in the food sector, take a look below at some of the most exciting franchises we have to offer. From authentic hummus bowls to Italian street food, we’ve got something for every budget and taste.
