New Westminster, B.C., is about to get a taste of one of Canada’s largest pizza chains.
Food-service franchise system Pizza Pizza has opened its first restaurant in Western Canada, marking the start of its planned expansion across the Greater Vancouver area.
Pizza Pizza announced six additional franchises expected to open in the province by 2019. The locations are planned for Burnaby, Surrey, Delta, and Vancouver.
“We’re very excited about this next step in Pizza Pizza’s national expansion,” said company CEO Paul Goddard. “We know how much British Columbians love their pizza, so we have big plans for the West Coast and are looking to build significant market presence in the coming years.”
Established in 1967, Pizza Pizza Ltd., has more than 750 locations across Canada, operating under both Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 banners.
