OUR MARKET

Our customers are active lifestyle people, busy tradespeople and professionals, families and young adults that yearn for better food on the go offerings and take an interest in nutrition and care about what they eat.

Pita Pit offers in store, click and collect, delivery and take away service. Click and collect and delivery now account for 30% of our sales with business proving very resilient through Covid 19.

Our "fresh grilled flavour filled" Mediterranean style pitas, tasty nutritional smoothies and imaginative nourishing rice bowls enable us to service a broad range of tastes and demographics.

Repeat business and word of mouth from people who have tried our pitas is our greatest strength and driver of growth. This is supported by our smart online presence, community engagement and good in store marketing. Transparent, fair and competitive pricing enable us to compete successfully, supported by a strong customer loyalty program More! and innovative in-store and customer specific promotions.

THE PROCESS

We are looking for people with high energy levels, who have a passion for full-time, hands-on running of the business. The most successful franchisees are those who inject time and energy into their investment. Great care is taken to ensure it is the right opportunity for both parties and that everyone understand the opportunity, the costs, the respective responsibilities, and the timeline and potential returns.

 

We want to grant franchises to people who share our vision and values, have the discipline to follow Pita Pit guidelines, and the experience to understand the challenges and rewards. Given that this is a long-term decision (10 to 20 yrs), we aim to try and ensure the commitment and investment is right for both parties.
