Pita Pit lies to the detriment of their franchisees.
During the time my brother and I spent looking for sites in order to open up 2 Pita Pit franchise shops Chris Henderson, a Director of PPO NZ the master franchisor in NZ that trades under Pita Pit in New Zealand, stated that in no uncertain terms that Pita Pit NZ would never ever “clip the ticket” as per what Subway does.
Clipping the ticket basically means that the head office does deals with suppliers which gives them a kick back, goods in kind or some sort of retrospective discount. He has admitted that the head office has done such deals which lays bare to their claim in their info to prospective franchisees that they get the best possible price from suppliers to their benefit.
He also stated that any rental over $40k pa is out with the possibility of a shop being profitable. It looks many of the existing shops pay more than that with a few even paying over $100k pa.
Many shops have been sold with many more up for sale. As per my last count 12 have been sold with another 11 up for sale. Not too great a look for any company but there again the 3 guys who run the outfit in NZ are simply going for gold no matter what. I strongly believe that people will lose their houses having been sucked into the belief that Pita Pit can deliver great profits.
Much more to come including info re a shop that does not meet the fire regulations concerning the back of the grill, which the poor franchisee thought they had paid for, and also how Pita Pit managed to make franchisees pay for the refit of their solely owned shop in Takapuna.
Did Pita Pit NZ have to pay anything to revamp their shop in Takapuna? NO AS CHRIS HENDERSON TOLD THE COMPANY, NAMELY ROCKET SIGNS – LOTS MORE TO COME ABOUT THAT COMPANY, TO SIMPLY CHARGE WHATEVER IT COST ON TO THE NEXT LOT OF FRANCHISEES!
The whole thing about Pita Pit stinks and I shall not rest until I expose those bad people who think that if someone puts their house up to the bank as collateral then they don’t care as they have already banked the franchise fee.
