Pizza Pizza reports a record growth year in Montreal Thursday, January 19th, 2017

MONTREAL, QC, January 19, 2017 - The recent opening of a new Pizza Pizza location in Montreal marks a record number of stores to have opened in any one market in 2016. Six new Pizza Pizza restaurants have opened in the greater Montreal area last year alone.

The newest restaurant located at 1270 Jarry Road E features Pizza Pizza´s new lobby-style store design with modern features like sleek furniture and natural wood finishes. Other recent openings include new restaurants in Brossard (300 Rome Boulevard) and in the neighbourhood of Longue-Pointe (3235 Granby Avenue).

“With 2016 behind us, we´re pleased that we continue to experience growth in Quebec,” said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza. “Since 2008, we´ve opened more than 50 locations throughout the province – and we hope to continue this upward trend. We thank our local customers for their continued support of the Pizza Pizza brand and look forward to continuing to serve quality food in 2017 and beyond.”

The restaurant will serve Pizza Pizza’s wide variety of hot and fresh menu items, which includes its famous lineup of pizzas- including classic, gourmet and gluten-free options. As well, a variety of appetizers and sides are available, like chicken wings, poutine, boneless chicken bites, Italian sandwiches, pastas and salads.

With 50 locations (combined traditional and express restaurants) spread across Quebec, Pizza Pizza and its franchise partners employ some 400 people in the province. The company is committed to supporting local sports teams and is currently the Official Pizza for all three of Montreal´s professional sports teams, including the Montreal Canadiens, Alouettes and Impact. In addition, Pizza Pizza operates non-traditional counters in the Bell Centre, Saputo Stadium, La Ronde and Cineplex theatres.

The company continues to issue a broad call to local entrepreneurs who wish to join its growing franchise network. Interested candidates are invited to visit www.pizzapizza.ca/franchising.
