It’s already been five years since the Pita Pit, a Canadian Franchise, opened on 18th Street in Brandon. Local franchise owner, Jigar Patel (known as JP) who took over ownership of the restaurant in 2016, is excited about upcoming changes and most recently the addition of a new online ordering app.
The app allows customers to order their snack or meal online and avoid line-ups when picking up their order in-store. In addition, customers accumulate points through the Pita Pit More!points program. The app has been in place since June and is being tested at the Brandon location as well as two locations in Winnipeg. Patel said that it’s easy to use and customers are embracing the system and appreciate the convenience of a quick pick-up.
In addition, the company will be launching their catering menu through the online ordering app this fall, which will allow for easy group or business orders. At the same time, they will also be adding a delivery option for their online orders.
In the following year, they also plan to introduce a grab and go frozen yogurt (Yogun Fruz) to their menu as the company is currently testing the product with customers in Ontario.
The Pita Pit in Brandon has 10 full and part-time employees. They offer a wide range of healthy pita options (rolled or bowled) including gluten-free pitas, all-day breakfast and smoothies.
The franchise originated in Kingston, Ontario in 1995; today there are 650 store locations throughout the world. Download the new Canada Pita Pit app in iTunes or on Google Play.
