“As an appreciation to everyone for our first year’s support, we will be having $5 Pitas all day (Thursday, Feb 13),” said Dain Peters, the owner of the Dayton area’s first Pita Pit location at 1047 Brown St. near the University of Dayton and Miami Valley Hospital.
A regular size pita normally costs $7.50 or $8.
They will cost $5 during Pita Pit’s business hours — 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Peters recently turned 24. He reopened a closed Pita Pit location in Muncie, Ind., near Ball State University in August, according to a Ball State Daily News article.
“I have been traveling between the stores,” Peters told this news organization.
He said business has been good at the Dayton location.
“The year had been great, our catering is really starting to pick up,” he said in response to questions sent via text message. “I feel like I have learned more this year than previous years combined. What I have learned is employee and customer relations are a really important thing. Friendly employees, great food, accuracy and timeliness of an order are what can separate you from the rest of the competition.”
