About Pita Pit Inc.

Nelson Lang and John Sotiriadis sought to provide a healthier alternative to the usual fast food fare when they opened the first Pita Pit in Kingston, Ontario, in 1995 and started serving Lebanese-style pita sandwiches. They began franchising in Canada in 1997, and then in the U.S. two years later.
