Episode #49 Chaim Shpigelman “Giving it all you got”
Chaim Shpigelman is the CEO and founder of Pizza Pita of Montreal.
Launched in 1989 with a small location on Victoria Avenue in Montreal, QC.
The family owned and operated business was started by two brothers, Chaim and Tzvi. As the success of the restaurant grew so did the need for a larger restaurant. They started to seek a bigger space to better accommodate the community. This dream came to fruition in 2004 when they moved their restaurant location to Decarie Blvd.
This location was a newly renovated three floor facility, including a party hall, an outdoor terrace and the first kosher drive-thru in the world! This expansion allowed Pizza Pita to cater to the vast needs of its guests.
