A pizza chain in Winnipeg, known for its fast, artisanal wood-fired pies, opens three new locations in Ontario.
A second store will be stored in Rutherford Marketplace a suburban square in Vaughan, and the third location in Mississauga will be located in an area called the Mississauga GO countries, a shopping area right next to the Lisgar GO Station.
Under the leadership of the young Winnipeg entrepreneur Manly Cheung – who grew up in the Chinese wok restaurant of his parents – the chain is best known as a fast informal restaurant that specializes in 11-inch pizzas prepared in brick ovens.
With five locations already in Winnipeg and on the way, the company has enjoyed tremendous growth since 2015 and has built a reputation for convenient turnaround times of just 3 and a half minutes.
Za Pizza offers customized cakes, plus daily freshly made dough from wholegrain, classic or gluten-free.
Pizza’s can be experimental here, with previous locations with temporary specials such as teriyaki chicken pizza and cheeseburger-inspired pizzas at selected locations.
In an interview with the Winnipeg Free Press last September, Manly has made plans to open restaurants in Victoria, Vancouver, Halifax and Calgary.
“The plan is to open up to 100 in Ontario,” he said. “That is my dream and my goal.”
