Pizza Pizza Opens Second Restaurant in British Columbia

According to a press release, Pizza Pizza Limited, Canada’s pizza experts, opened the doors to a second traditional restaurant in British Columbia on July 2nd. The restaurant, located at 7348 Kingsway, in Burnaby, is part of a Canada-wide strategic expansion and follows the opening of the first B.C. store in Delta earlier this year.

The local partner, Elmo Fernando, brings years of experience from the hospitality industry, which includes Edmonton’s Sutton Place and previous experience in the services and hotel industry in his home country of Sri Lanka.      

The Burnaby restaurant is part of a larger strategic expansion throughout the country that has included new locations in Montreal, Winnipeg, and Saskatchewan.  

“Pizza Pizza is a strong brand in the Canadian market,” said Mr. Fernando. “I wanted a challenge that would give me something of my own but with the support of an experienced team. “I’m looking forward to working hard to help build the brand in the B.C. market.”
