Founded in 1995 in Eastern Canada, The Pita Pit was created as a quick service restaurant with a new and unique approach. The Pita Pit was founded on the premise that people wanted a place that was healthy, fresh, and fast, with a friendly informal atmosphere and a varied and flavorful menu. They created a meal experience based on grilled meats, fresh vegetables, zesty sauces and a pita shell of their own design, folded in a unique way. Following this, they developed an operation to deliver it all in a convenient and efficient manner. Franchising began in Canada in 1997 and in the USA in 1999. In April 2005, current Pita Pit USA CEO Jack Riggs, MD, and a team of investors purchased Pita Pit Inc. and have expanded it rapidly, opening over 80 new locations. As of February 26, 2008, there are 149 Pita Pit locations in 38 states.
