July 21, 2009, Vancouver – Panago Pizza continues to expand eastward with the opening of their first Atlantic Canada location in Fredericton, N.B., this fall.
The Fredericton location will be franchised by University of New Brunswick alumni Joe Sivitilli.

“I first experienced Panago while travelling in Western Canada. The pizza was exceptional, and their unique brand really caught my attention,” states Sivitilli, who has 10 years of experience in the pizza industry. “After doing some additional research, it was evident to me that Panago would be very successful in Atlantic Canada.”    

Panago’s initial opening in Atlantic Canada marks the start of future growth in this region and is coupled with ongoing store expansions in Ontario. New locations in Toronto and Mississauga are scheduled to open in September 2009.

“Atlantic Canada is an important part of our national expansion strategy and we see a real opportunity in the Fredericton market,” says Panago’s CEO Sean DeGregorio. “We look forward to building on the same simple concept that Panago is so well known for across the country - a remarkable customer experience partnered with successful and supported franchisees.”

With roots in British Columbia and over 170 delivery and take out locations across Canada, Panago’s 2008 system wide sales exceeded $140 million.
