TORONTO — Pizza Nova will open its second location in Courtice, Ont. on July 25, marking the chain’s 146th store in Canada. The 1,200-sq.-ft. space, which has been under construction since March, is located at 1649 Durham Regional Road 2.
The new location will be operated by franchisee Jawaid Said, who has worked with Pizza Nova since 1999. Both Courtice, Ont. locations will be operated by the Said family. The opening celebration will offer loot bags to the first 100 guests and a small cheese or pepperoni pizza for $3.99. The proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association of Durham.
“I made the decision to invest in Pizza Nova many years ago and it’s been a great choice,” says Said. “Our first location has done well over the years and I’m very excited to open up this second location with my family by my side helping to both serve and delight existing and new customers.”
“Expansion is a great feeling,” says Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova. “It’s especially nice to see a family of entrepreneurs like the Said family succeed and grow its impact in the community and for the benefit of new staff, customers and other partners and neighbours.”
