EDMONTON—Pizza 73, a leading pizza chain in Western Canada, opened the doors to a brand new 40,000 square foot headquarters in Edmonton in June 2018.
Thirty-three years after the pizza delivery chain opened the doors to its first pizza store in Edmonton, and now with 86 stores operating under the brand, Pizza 73’s recent expansion sparked the need for the brand new, larger facility.
The new head office will be home base to their Distribution Centre, Customer Service, Call Centre and Administrative teams. The company is hiring several key functions and is expected to staff approximately 100 employees by October 2018, approximately 20 per cent more than currently employed.
Pizza 73 is committed to sustainability and baked those values into the new facility via 100 per cent LED lighting, occupancy sensors, high efficient boilers, roof top units, and high efficient insulated roof and panels.
“Pizza 73’s new headquarters is an important investment for today and tomorrow as we grow and innovate Pizza 73 and Western Canada,” says Pizza 73 senior vice-president of operations and development Philip Goudreau. “It will help with efficiencies for our team and suppliers to allow us to enhance the customer experience.”
He adds: “Pizza 73 is a proud Canadian brand with deep roots in Western Canada. We now employ over 1,800 people across Saskatchewan, Alberta, BC and Yukon between restaurant staff, delivery drivers, commissary, call centre, and administrative team members, and we’re looking forward to continued growth.”
Pizza 73 further tapped into the local talent by contracting Alberta-based Cormode and Dickson, along with Edmonton-based architectural firm, BR2. Construction began in early 2016 and officially opened in the summer of 2018.
The facility will service the leading Western Canadian pizza chain’s locations throughout Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Yukon. The facility is located at 13703, 164 Street NW, Edmonton.
