March 3, 2015, Toronto – Paul Methot, senior vice-president of operations for Pizza Pizza, was elected chair of the board of Restaurants Canada for 2015-16 at the association's annual meeting March 2.

As chair, Methot, who has served on the Restaurants Canada board since 2004, will oversee the trade association. The association represents 30,000 businesses in Canada's $68-billion restaurant industry.

"We are the growth industry that never stops growing. People have to eat, they want to enjoy themselves and our industry provides those unique events, venues, and products for tomorrow's generation," said Methot in a news release.

"We deserve greater recognition by all levels of government for the jobs we provide, the businesses and opportunities we create and for our unique contributions to feeding our great country. I look forward to delivering this message and I'm determined to achieve results to support our Canadian businesses."

Methot is in charge of Pizza Pizza's restaurant operations, including call centre, food distribution and manufacturing. The Pizza Pizza network, including Pizza73, encompasses more than 700 restaurants across Canada with over 7,000 people working in their system.

His favourite pizza? Hawaiian with bacon.

Restaurants Canada also welcomes past director and chair of the board Brenda O'Reilly, owner of YellowBelly and O'Reilly's, as honorary fellow of Restaurants Canada, and sommelier Jeremy Bonia, owner of Raymonds in St. John's, to its board of directors.
