Popular locally owned and operated Greek, Mediterranean, Lebanese, Middle Eastern, vegetarian and vegan restaurant Pita Jungle has announced its newest location at Peoria’s highly anticipated Park West.
The 4,400-square-foot West Valley location will open this summer, though a more formal date has yet to be set.
“We are thrilled about our newest restaurant at Park West, soon to be the premium destination in the West Valley,” said Bassel Osmani, co-founder of Pita Jungle. “Opening our 22nd location and introducing the Peoria neighborhood to ‘The Art of Eating Healthy’ is the perfect way to celebrate our 25th anniversary this year.”
The new restaurant will feature a large main dining area and outdoor patio that flows into the interior through wide openings and an inviting full bar.
It will be the first location to bake its own flatbreads in a very visual fashion right in the middle of the dining room.
The restaurant will be open for lunch, happy hour and dinner seven days a week, serving the same Mediterranean dishes that have built its reputation over the past 25 years.
According to Osmani, the Park West Pita Jungle will “project an avant-garde perspective upon what the new roaring ’20s will bring, highlighted by the surrounding geography and the promise of desert urbanism the city of Peoria has been beautifully delivering.”
Between now and the opening, Pita Jungle will hire approximately 70 part-time and full-time employees, from chefs to servers and everything in between, for the new Peoria restaurant.
With this addition, there will be 19 Pita Jungle’s in the Phoenix Metro area, two in Tucson and one in Flagstaff.
