Who We Are
Pita Pit founder, Nelson Lang, rolled the very first pita in 1995, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, with a vision to provide a healthy alternative to fast food restaurants. The success of this “fresh thinking” concept led to its franchising across Canada starting in 1997, followed by the United States in 1999. Pita Pit International was formed to bring the Pita Pit concept to the world and has grown steadily since the first international location opened in New Zealand in 2008. Pita Pit currently has three locations in the UK.
The globally recognised Pita Pit brand is perfectly positioned to lead the growing market trend in the UK towards new fast casual concepts that deliver delicious, high quality, healthy, customisable, ethically sourced and environmentally friendly products. Our brand is, and always will be, anchored by our delicious and nutritious Pitas. Building on this foundation, we have carefully cultivated the following brand elements as mutually supporting pillars of the Pita Pit customer experience.
- Crave-Able: Serve food that people dream about
- Customisable: Have it your way
- Fast, Portable and Convenient: For today's on-the-go customer
- Healthy: Guilt free dining pleasure – how often do you get that?
- Fun and Friendly: Life is short, have fun
- Environmentally Friendly: Because we live on the planet too
- Modern, Natural Design: Who wants to eat in a neon box!?
At Pita Pit, we don’t do things the conventional way; we never have and we never will. Ultimately, this approach starts with our bread—the pita. Our pitas aren’t the boring, stiff, fold-over-type pitas—they’re unique. They are custom-designed to wrap around our delicious, lean grilled meats, fresh toppings, cheeses, and sauces, so it can be eaten and enjoyed anywhere. Yes, anywhere—the office desk, walking down the street, driving the car (although we wouldn’t recommend this!), or on the dance floor!
