Our story
Story Top
During his time overseas, Kiwi Chris Henderson became a regular customer at his local Pita Pit in Mammoth, California where he was working as a ski instructor. He gained such a passion for it that he decided to visit the Head Office in Ontario, Canada. Together with his friend and business partner, Duane Dalton, they backed themselves that Kiwis would share the same enthusiasm and embrace the tasty, fresh idea and began development to bring Pita Pit back down-under. Now with over 100 locally-owned and operated stores nationwide, they invite you to taste for yourselves the best tasting Pita’s in the world!
