7-Eleven launches new lighter, crispier hand panned pizzas – made in
Canada with quality Canadian ingredients.

7-Eleven Canada invites Canadians to visit the new pizzeria in their neighbourhood – featuring hand panned pizzas made with quality Canadian ingredients.

The brand’s newest offering strikes the perfect balance between authentic Italian heritage and Canadian traditions. Knowing that the dough is the most important element to customers, 7-Eleven developed a light and crispy crust made from 100% Canadian wheat using authentic natural sourdough from Puglia, Italy. The dough is then hand-stretched and panned in B.C. to provide the lightness and crispiness reminiscent of an Italian pizzeria.

Quality Canadian ingredients top these flavour-packed pizzas including traditionally slow-dry cured pepperoni from Montreal. Three types of 100% Canadian milk cheeses bring the flavours together, including provolone and parmesan from Ontario and mozzarella from British Columbia.

“Our goal for our new pizza recipes was to provide a quality, delicious pizza hot from our store ovens in minutes 24/7 – or delivered to your home,” explains Norman Hower, VP and GM of 7-Eleven Canada. “The crust is arguably the most important piece of the pie, so we took our time to develop an authentic tasting dough that we knew people would love.”

For the month of December, Canadians are able to sample the new pizzas for free every Friday from 2-4pm! Whether you’re in a crunch for a kid’s party, tomorrow’s breakfast, or craving some late-night munchies, 7-Eleven Canada has you covered with late-night deliveries in over 350 stores and over 410 on December 16. To see if your local store delivers, visit www.7-eleven.ca/delivery.

Published

on

If “yum” is your favourite way to talk about food, you’ll get a mouthful ordering at Jollibee.

And you’ll get that chance sometime in the coming months when the cherished Fillipino fast-food chain opens in Newton’s Strawberry Hill Shopping Center.

The wildly popular Jollibee first launched as an ice cream parlour 45 years ago and claims to be the “largest fast-food chain brand in the Philippines.

” It boasts about offering a taste of home for the international community as “a stronghold of heritage and monument of Filipino pride.”

Jollibee is aggressively taking its cheerful vibe, mash-up dishes and family-friendly atmosphere around the world and opened its first Canadian location in 2016. It has yet to arrive in B.C. though is expected to open imminently on Vancouver’s Granville Street.

What’s for you? Spicy or regular?

Dubbed the “McDonald’s of the Philippines,” Jollibee is also known as “JFC,” and the Jollibee Food Corporation embraces the acronym that hints at its own finger-licking-good fried chicken and signature secret recipe.

Amazing Aloha Yumburger

There it is. Yum is right in the name.

The Canadian menu includes the Big Yumburger, the Cheesy Yumburger, and the Amazing Aloha Yumburger with bacon and a slice of pineapple. Hawaiian pizza on a bun, basically. Can’t wait!

Jolly Spaghetti

When Anthony Bourdain visited a Manilla location of the “wackiest, jolliest place on Earth,” he dove right into that Jolly Spaghetti and its hotdog toppings. His review: “Deranged, yet strangely alluring.”

Burger Steak

This pile of hamburgers and mushroom gravy is missing an adjective. May I suggest, “Yum”?

When it arrives in Surrey, there will be platters and palabok.

The Strawberry Hill Shopping Centre will get a facelift near the intersection of 120th and 72nd with Jollibee’s new 3,400-square-foot restaurant and outdoor patio.

The City of Surrey approved the development in December and said the new Jollibee will “improve the streetscape” near the busy intersection.

Ube is made from taro and used in all kinds of desserts, from pastries to ice cream, and is a striking, photo-ready shade of purple.

Peach mango pie is also on the Canadian menu.
