Pita Pit was founded in Kingston, Ontario in 1995 when founders Nelson Lang and John Sotiradis had the idea of opening a fast-food restaurant that offered healthy and fresh alternatives to existing fast-food options. Their pita sandwiches that were loaded with grilled meats and fresh vegetables and topped with zesty sauces were an instant hit.
Two years after opening the first Pita Pit, the company was franchising stores across Canada and another two years later, they opened in the USA. Today, more than 450 Pita Pit stores serve customers healthy fast-food across North America, Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Asia-Pacific.
