If you’ve always craved a pizza that was as crisp, gooey and loaded with toppings as it was portable, Toronto will soon be home to your dream spot. Konz Pizza, a chain from British Columbia, is expanding this spring, with five Ontario locations scheduled to open by the end of the summer.

Konz Pizza, made popular thanks to its namesake conical pies, was founded by CEO Kris Lawrie in 2015 in Kelowna, B.C. Originally a food truck, the business took off, expanding to multiple brick-and-mortar stores in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The company now has “dozens more slated to open nationwide,” says corporate marketing manager Gurpreet Kailley.

This spring, two Konz locations will be opening in Toronto, one at King and Shaw, the other at Bathurst and Bloor, with additional locations planned for Streetsville, Brampton and Barrie. The “Toronto menus will feature unique flavours specific to the Toronto market,” says Kailley, though details have yet to be revealed.

Beyond Konz’s signature, hand-held pizzas, available in a variety of flavours from Buffalo chicken and meatball to pepperoni and Greek, the chain is also known for made-to-order pastas, fresh salads, tater tot poutine, hard and soft serve ice creams and the type of milkshakes you'll want to sip all summer long.
