Extreme Pita, Purblendz and Extreme Pizza! Open in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Toronto

Health-Inspired Eatery Opens Fourth Healthcare Location

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 14, 2012) - Extreme Pita, with over 285 restaurants in North America, today announced the grand opening of its newest Extreme Pita restaurant, which includes Purblendz All Natural Smoothies and Extreme Pizza! at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Toronto, Canada.

Hospital staff and visitors can now enjoy Extreme Pita's healthy and made-to-order pita sandwiches, Extreme Pizza's Flatbaked Pita Pizzas, and Purblendz' all-natural smoothies, which are gluten free, dairy free and contain no fillers.

"With the opening of our newest Extreme Pita restaurant, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre visitors and staff now have healthier and tastier quick service meal options," said Alex Rechichi, co-founder and president of Extreme Brandz Group of Companies, "which makes sense in any healthcare environment."

The restaurant in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is the fourth healthcare location to be added to Extreme Pita's portfolio. Last year, Extreme Pita opened restaurants in St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga and Women's & Children's Hospital in Vancouver. Two new healthcare location restaurants will open in Canada and the U.S. later this year.

Compass Group Canada, who Extreme Brandz partners with on a number of initiatives in their educational and healthcare market sectors, said that "as the largest single-site hospital in Canada, we want the guests at Sunnybrook to have a range of healthier dining options available to them and Extreme Pita can truly deliver nutritious offerings, including Health Check approved items on its menu." www.compass-canada.com.
