You guys. @pitafusion store #2 is so close to open!! We are pending final inspections by the health department & City of Austin and just have to add a little decor. I cannot put into words how proud I am of Nick and the blood sweat and tears he's put into growing this business. Pita Fusion has become a North Austin and Round Rock FAV because of his hard work and dedication to making his pita recipe and his sandwiches the absolute best! If you haven't heard, the Lake Creek location is on the corner of Lake Creek and 183 and we look forward to feeding you all real soon! Oh.. and I have a feeling that plans for store number THREE won't be far behind the Lake Creek open! Where would YOU like to see the next Pita Fusion located?
LAKELINE — Pita Fusion’s second store is close to opening and waiting on final inspections and decor. The chain bringing "American sandwiches in Mediterranean bread" to the area also hints at plans for a third store, though the location is still up in the air.
