Popular pizza chain from Ontario to open location in Penticton

Pizza Pizza has more than 500 stores across the country, most of which are in Ontario

One of the country’s most popular pizza chains is opening a location in Penticton.

Pizza Pizza, an Ontario-based company with more than 500 locations predominantly in central and eastern Canada, recently announced its intentions to come to the South Okanagan.

The store would be located in a Main Street plaza, neighbouring fellow restaurants Mucho Burrito and Subway.

Posted signs on the building — adjacent to a Starbucks coffee shop — call for potential employees to apply by emailing ketancpatadia@gmail.com.

Penticton appears to be included in Pizza Pizza’s opening spree throughout Western Canada, with Burnaby and Port Alberni also recently getting locations.

Founded in 1967, the franchise has operated in parts of B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Yukon under the name Pizza 73 for more than a decade.

A Main Street plaza, home to a Mucho Burrito and Subway, intends to feature a Pizza Pizza location in the near future.
