    Pita Way opened its doors in Fenton one year ago this weekend, bringing to the tri-county area a healthier fast-casual alternative to burgers and pizza.

To celebrate this one-year anniversary, Pita Way, at 15274 Silver Parkway in the Pier 1 plaza, will offer a BOGO (Buy One Get One) special on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 18-20 — no coupon required.

    “We want to thank our loyal customers in our first year of business, and invite new customers who haven’t tried us yet,” said Kipp Quarton, who is in charge of marketing eight Pita Way locations.

    It has always been the goal of Pita Way owner/founder Brandon Bahoura to put a fresh spin on Mediterranean foods he grew up with, drawing upon family recipes and culinary secrets provided by his aunt and grandmother.

This passion fueled his entrepreneurial spirit and allowed him to open his first Pita Way location in Clarkston in 2010, followed by South Lyon, Lake Orion, White Lake, Brighton, Auburn Hills, Livonia and most recently, Fenton.

Pita Way opened its doors in Fenton Nov. 18, 2017, bringing fast, fresh alternatives to local diners. “As a team, we share the vision of providing the freshest best tasting food to the community,” Quarton said.

    All of Pita Way’s food is authentic, hand-picked, locally sourced and prepared to order using only the best ingredients. It’s all made in-house using Bahoura’s family’s own old-world recipes. “We make our own marinades and marinate our meats for 24 hours or more,” Quarton said. “We pickle our own cabbage and pickles and make our own hummus from scratch. It is all fresh, healthy, made-from-scratch food.”

    Breads are sourced from the famous Yasmeen Bakery and baklava comes straight from the experts at Shatila Bakery, both located in Dearborn.

It’s also delicious, with a vast selection of meats, cheeses, salads and vegetables to put on your plate or in your rice bowl. Soups are also on the menu every day at Pita Way.

    If you’re new to Mediterranean foods, Quarton said that the best way to know what to choose is to take advantage of Pita Way’s free samples. “We love giving samples away so that people can see the range of different foods we offer,” Quarton said.

 Some of the most popular dishes at Pita Way are Chicken Tawook, Chicken Shwarma, pita bowls with a rice base and hummus and tabbouleh (vegetarian salad) and QuesoPita wraps with your choice of fillings. “It’s very hardy, healthy food,” Quarton said. “We offer plentiful serving sizes, too.”

Catering is another special service at Pita Way, offering huge platters and bowls of some of the restaurant’s most well-known dishes. With the holidays coming up, this is a perfect time to place your catering order.

Delivery is also an option, in addition to dining in the restaurant or take-out.     “Fenton Food Express handles all of our deliveries,” Quarton said.

Pita Way is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

    “We’re always looking for people to join our team,” Quarton said. “It’s the Pita Way family. We’re very close-knit and care about each other.”
