Tacoma is about to get its first taste of the international fast-food chain The Pita Pit. Remodeling is under way on the former Perks location at 921 Pacific Ave.
The 11-year-old Canadian chain currently has five Washington locations (in Seattle, Bellingham, Pullman, Spokane, and, soon, Ellensburg, Cheney and Tacoma). It's franchising across the USA.
I haven't tried The Pita Pit's food yet, but its Build Your Own Pita nutrition calculator is a good waste of 30 seconds.
As soon as I find out what "coming soon" means, I'll post the opening date for the downtown Tacoma location.
