Our story:

healthy from the start

We were at the forefront of today’s growing “fresh and healthy” eating revolution when we opened the first Pita Pit in Kingston, Ontario near Queen’s University back in 1995. We knew from personal experience what students and young professionals wanted but couldn’t find nearby: an affordable yet great-tasting fresh and healthy alternative to artery-clogging, high-fat, and high-carb fast food. Having been students ourselves in the not-too-distant past, we also knew it was important for a quick service restaurant to stay open late for those nights when you’re studying, prepping a presentation—or just heading home after the local bars close.

A commitment to

fresh thinking

College students and young professionals remain our primary target audience for daytime meals and late-night cravings. But at the same time, Pita Pit has been growing up with its customers, satisfying the increasing demand for quick-service restaurants serving better-for-you meals with the freshest possible ingredients. As a result, our restaurants and marketing materials are moving to a fresh and healthy look with broader, family-friendly appeal.
