The Boston Pizza concept began in Edmonton, Alberta in 1964 when Greek immigrant Gus Agioritis opened “Boston Pizza and Spaghetti House”. Although he lacked any significant restaurant experiences, Agioritis achieved success by combining hard work with a business strategy that included a focus on growth through franchising.  This strategy established the early success of the Boston Pizza chain, and by 1970 Boston Pizza had 17 locations throughout Western Canada, of which 15 were franchised.
