The GOODS from Virtuous Pie
Victoria, BC | Just one month after the long-awaited opening of Toronto’s College street location in November, Virtuous Pie is announcing it is adding a fifth location to its growing fleet, this one in Victoria, BC. The Vancouver Island outpost of the plant-based pizza and ice cream restaurant will be located at 530 Pandora Avenue and is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.
At over 2,300 square feet, it will be the largest Virtuous Pie location to date, with 61 seats, a 653 square foot outdoor patio, as well as a brand new feature for Virtuous Pie, a bar area.
“We thought it would be a great opportunity to have a space where customers could relax and enjoy one of our local wines or craft beers and engage in conversation with friends or meet someone new at our communal bar,” says Director of Marketing and Business Development Lia Loukas.
The restaurant will be situated along a busy bike route, in an area populated by university students, young professionals, growing families, and recent transplants from the mainland. The area is also home to a number of other popular vegan eateries.
“Victoria has a vibrant, close-knit community that we’re excited to be apart of. There are some great plant-based businesses that developed here and we are excited to be in good company,” says Loukas.
In addition to featuring the popular plant-based pizzas, ice creams, and small-plates available at other locations, Virtuous Pie is partnering with local breweries and wineries. The team is working on menu items that will be unique to the Victoria location that will be announced closer to opening.
The Victoria location is being designed by Vancouver’s Simcic Uhrich Architects, the team behind a number of other notable local spaces including Strathcona Brewery, Juniper Restaurant, Pendulum Gallery, and Grace Church Vancouver.
While this will be the first Virtuous Pie opening for 2019, other North American locations will be announced in the coming months.
Virtuous Pie is an elevated fast-casual restaurant with locations in Vancouver, Toronto and Portland, Oregon. Virtuous Pie combines sustainable, great-tasting plant-based pizzas and ice cream with creative design and exceptional service in a bright, inviting environment.
