Canadian fast food chain Pita Pit is to open its second UK outlet in Leeds next month, creating 10 new jobs.

The company currently has over 450 stores worldwide in 11 locations and has ambitious UK expansion plans. It has already signed with two other multi-unit franchisee groups for stores in London and Manchester and plans to open another 10 outlets in Leeds over the next five years.

The first Leeds store will be a 1,400 sq ft unit on the Woodhouse Lane side of the Merrion Centre, which is receiving a £200,000 investment.

Pita Pit specialises in pitta bread sandwiches and salads.
