What type of locations fit into Extreme Pita site criteria?

Extreme Pita franchises are generally 1000 to 1200 square feet; however, smaller or larger stores are an option. They are usually located in neighborhood and community strip centers, power centers, shopping malls and downtown business district locations. The optimal area is typically densely populated, has significant traffic count, is highly visible and is located near numerous traffic generators.

I have little experience in negotiating leases. Will the Extreme Pita offer assistance in this area?

Yes. The Extreme Pita will fully negotiate or aid in lease negotiations for Franchisees.

Are there any continuing or ongoing fees after I pay the initial franchise fee?

Is experience in running a small business required?

While small business experience is helpful, it is not required. You will receive step-by-step training at Extreme Pita headquarters in Toronto in the important aspects of operating your business, including operational, marketing, nutritional and customer service classes. You also receive hands-on training behind the service counter and in the food preparation area. The desire and effort of the Franchisee is more important than restaurant, business or retailing experience.
