Boston Pizza started in Edmonton, Alberta in 1964 when Gus Agioritis opened his Boston Pizza and Spaghetti House. Impressed with the concept, Jim Treliving opened the first Franchise in Penticton, B.C. In 1983 he and partner George Melville acquired the chain of 44 restaurants. With over 375 restaurants in Canada including locations in ten provinces and two territories, Jim and George have grown Boston Pizza into the largest casual dining brand in Canada.


The Boston Pizza Royalties Income Fund, BPF.UN, began trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on July 17, 2002. Monthly distributions to unitholders began immediately and have been increased a total of sixteen times since the IPO. 


The enormously successful Canadian Boston Pizza chain expanded into the United States in 1998 with headquarters in Dallas, Texas and the first restaurant in Tempe, Arizona. It offers superior “gourmet pizza” with crust, seasonings and flavour unlike others. With over 40 locations throughout the US and Mexico the company is actively looking for driven Franchise partners to continue to expand in these markets. 


Over $24 million raised since 1990! Boston Pizza believes strong role models inspire kids to be great. This is why we created Future Prospects – because things start to look up when you have the right person to look up to. We help connect kids with role models in their communities to ensure they have the guidance necessary to support their bright futures. Our five amazing not-for profit partners Big Brothers Big Sisters, JDRF, Kids Help Phone, Live Different and Rick Hansen Foundation have helped us provide positive and meaningful mentorship to children and youth all over Canada.
