Anyone up for a pita?
Pita Pit owner Chris Volk, who owns three Pita Pits in North Dakota, said he expects Monday, May 19, to be opening day for the restaurant’s Brooklyn Park location near the Target Corporation campus and amid restaurants with burgers, pizza and subs. Chris’s brother, Tyler Volk, will be the general manager.
The restaurant is located at 9565 Colorado Lane among the storefronts across from Cub Foods and L.A. Fitness north off Highway 610 and Zane Avenue North.
The idea is to offer a quick breakfast – it will open at 5:30 a.m. – or quick lunch for area workers and cater to the healthy-living oriented patrons of the nearby health clubs, Chris said.
“But really most of the stuff around here is burgers or pizza – and so to have a healthy alternative is really what I think we can bring to the area for sure,” Tyler said.
After selecting meat, veggie and other ingredient options, customers’ pitas or salads are made in front of them, Chris said. It will also offer a range of breakfast options, he said.
Catering will be offered, and the brothers are considering delivery, but that is not a certainty, Chris said.
Offering healthy, low-carbohydrate choices is the intent, but there are many options, he said, be it Grecian or Philadelphian influences.
“You can make it as healthy and unhealthy as you want,” Chris said. “That’s kind of the cool thing about it.”
Anticipated hours are 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
