It all dates back to a passion for quality, service and a friendly environment.
1964: Gus Agioritis opened the first “Boston Pizza and Spaghetti House” in Edmonton, Alberta. 1968: Jim Treliving, a young officer with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, opened his first franchise location. 1973: Jim partnered with George Melville and over the next 10 years they opened a total of 16 restaurants. 1983: Jim and George purchased the entire 44-unit chain, then known as “Boston Pizza.” Boston Pizza is now the predominant casual dining restaurant concept in all of Canada, and Jim owns and oversees operations for over 370 locations. And Beyond: Over the last 18 years, Boston Pizza has expanded into the United States and Mexico under the “Boston’s/Boston’s Pizza” banner. It’s our dedication to quality, service, and providing a friendly environment that’s allowed us to celebrate more than 50 successful years and grow to over 400 locations across North America.
