No experience? No sweat
Before you open a Pita Pit store, we do everything we can to ensure your success.
If you’re interested in opening a Pita Pit franchise but are hesitant because you lack restaurant experience, relax. It doesn’t matter.
What matters most is that you care and are willing to work hard for your goals. Thanks to all the support that the Pita Pit offers franchisees, prior food-service experience is not a requirement.

We consider anyone who’s dedicated to working hard and is willing to follow our proven-successful operating system.
