Fresh Thinking Healthy Eating


Fresh Thinking Healthy Eating

Pita Pit International brings the highly successful Pita Pit concept created in Canada to customers throughout the world, outside of the USA and Canada.

Our Focus: To do our part to help create a world where people can enjoy healthy AND delicious food in a fast casual environment.

Together - with our already 600+ locations worldwide - we have begun building an international team who share our passion for fresh thinking & healthy eating 



In 1995 Nelson Lang rolled out the very first Pita Pit in Kingston, Ontario with a vision to provide a healthy alternative to fast food restaurants.

The success of this “Fresh Thinking” concept led to its franchising across Canada starting in 1997, followed by the United States in 1999.

Pita Pit International was formed to bring the Pita Pit concept to the world and has grown steadily since the first international location opened in New Zealand in 2007.

Nelson is still the heart and soul of the organization, and his leadership has ensured that Pita Pit is not a faceless corporation. As Nelson would say, it is all about the people.

Pita Pit will always maintain its focus on supporting the many people who have made us a success: our franchisees, our customers and our partners. At Pita Pit, when we succeed, we succeed together.

Our Food

Our Food

We serve the best, custom, handmade, & healthy Pitas.

Our product is handmade, customizable, nutritious, 
portable, fast and fun!

At Pita Pit, we don’t do things the conventional way; we never have and we never will.


Our approach starts with our bread: THE PITA

Our pitas aren’t the boring, stiff, fold-over-type pitas — they’re unique. 

They are custom-designed to wrap around our delicious, lean grilled meats, fresh toppings, cheeses, and sauces, so it can be eaten and enjoyed anywhere. Yes, anywhere. The office desk, walking down the street, driving the car  —although we don’t recommend this! — and even on the dance floor!
