Boston Pizza Opens Doors to the First Downtown Ottawa Location

OTTAWADec. 29, 2017 /CNW/ – Canada’s largest casual dining restaurant chain is set to open its first downtown Ottawa location in the Glebe neighbourhood tomorrow, Saturday, December 30th. The 7,000 square-foot sports bar and family restaurant is located at 640 Bank Street and is proudly owned and operated by Cam Saikaly and his son, Adam Saikaly, long-time Ottawa residents and Boston Pizza franchisees. The Saikalys have owned and operated the Conroy Road location in Ottawa for the past ten years.

“Boston Pizza is as Canadian as hockey and we are so excited to bring another location to the nation’s capital,” said Cam Saikaly, Boston Pizza franchisee and 60-year resident of Ottawa. “Whether you’re catching the game or dining out with the whole family, we’ll have something to suit everyone’s taste. We are the perfect place to warm-up after a long skate on the canal or unwind after a day of shopping in the fabulous Glebe.”

Not only does Boston Pizza serve delicious food in a fun environment, it is committed to improving communities across Canada and will be working with local sports teams, schools and other groups on fundraising initiatives to make a difference in Ottawa.

The restaurant will employ about 40 team members and has a spacious family dining room seating 76, as well as a lively sports bar, seating another 79.

Boston Pizza has been proudly Canadian since 1964 when the first location opened in Edmonton, Alberta. Today, Boston Pizza has more than 380 restaurant locations across the country.
