Pizza Pizza continues its Canada-wide growth initiative with the opening of an 11th restaurant in the Greater Montreal Area. Located at 662 boulevard des Laurentides in Laval, the new restaurant is the second to open its doors on the North Shore, and contributes to Pizza Pizza’s objective of establishing a solid presence in Quebec.
Pizza Pizza made its first foray into the Montreal market through the Universities. McGill University was Pizza Pizza’s first location back in 2000, followed shortly thereafter by Concordia University in 2002. After partnering with the Montreal Canadiens in 2007, concessions were opened throughout the Bell Centre. The first traditional restaurant would open a year later in 2008. Since then, the company has steadily built a solid network with over 100 employees, while also seeing a 15 percent increase in sales in the province.
“The outpouring of support and hospitality we have received from Quebecers has been tremendous,” said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza. “Laval is a vibrant community that makes for a great location to expand our company. As we continue to grow in Quebec, we look forward to the many opportunities to come from this thriving market.”
