KINGSTON, Ont. — During the Pita Pit national franchisee conference, the brand and its vendor partners raised more than $45,800 for Motionball and the Nova Scotia Special Olympics.
“Partnering with Motionball is so important to that vision,” says Kevin Pressburger, president of Pita Pit Canada. “Year after year, the organization supports hundreds of thousands of Canadians with intellectual disabilities and we are proud to contribute to their cause.”
The brand held various events throughout a three-day conference to help raise the money for the event and the organization. This effort came on the heels of Pita Pit’s partnership with Make-A-Wish Canada, which saw participating locations collect more than $50,000 for the foundation.
During the conference, Pita Pit also honoured its franchisee with company awards for Best Franchisee(s) of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Best Boost of the Year. This year’s winners were:
