A happy customer enjoys her first pita at the new Pita Pit location in the Philbrook Café.
Pita Pit, the newest dining option at UNH, has opened in the Philbrook Café. Pita Pit will be open during the academic year Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m.-1 a.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. – 1 a.m.
"Pita Pit is an international franchise that offers customers a healthy and affordable alternative to fast food restaurants," says Jon Plodzik, director of Dining Services. "Pita Pit serves made-to-order, proprietary lunch and dinner pitas and salads throughout the day. This is the first Pita Pit franchise in the New Hampshire."
Official grand opening activities for the Pita Pit included several free sample days with discount coupons distributed throughout campus. Pita Pit will also feature daily promotions including specially priced combos, discounted pitas and free beverages with the purchase of any pita.
"University of New Hampshire Dining Services is excited to partner with Pita Pit, and we are confident that this location will be a great new addition to the dining options available on campus," says Plodzik. "Pita Pit offers the type of convenient, affordable, healthy dining options that many customers have been asking for."
An incredible increase in sales of 35.6 percent at this location, which formerly offered an in-house brand of subs and sandwiches, is already a great indicator of Pita Pit’s popularity with the campus community.
