EDMONTON — Pizza 73 opened the doors to a brand new, 40,000-sq.-ft. headquarters in Edmonton in June 2018. The facility will service the pizza chain’s Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Yukon locations.
The new location will be home base to the chain’s distribution centre, customer service, call centre and administrative teams. The company is expected to expand its team to approximately 100 employees by October 2018 — approximately 20 per cent more than currently employed.
Pizza 73 is committed to sustainability and incorporated those values into the new facility via 100-per-cent LED lighting, occupancy sensors, high-efficiency boilers, roof-top units and high-efficiency 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 Philip Goudreau, senior vice-president, Operations & Development, Pizza 73. “It will help with efficiencies for our team and suppliers to allow us to enhance the customer experience.”
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.
