The year was 1996 and at the time the convenience food market was overflowing with cheap and nasty ‘junk’ food. There was a real need for change, and it came from the relaxed and leafy suburb of Kenmore in Brisbane’s west – the location of the very first Pizza Capers kitchen.
We wanted to give the people of Brisbane the chance to enjoy an interesting and varied menu, with pizza made using only fresh restaurant quality and wholesome ingredients. It was a hit. We were a standout, and as word spread the store got busy…really busy.
After the first year in market a second store was opened in the inner Brisbane suburb of Toowong. Just like our first kitchen in Kenmore, the Toowong store struck a similar chord with the locals.
For the next few years we knuckled down and further developed the menu, concepts and systems. By 2002, with solid foundations built, we added more stores to our growing family – and as 2005 came around we had a dozen kitchens under the Pizza Capers flag.
2005 was also an exciting moment for all those involved and an important milestone for the Pizza Capers brand. With demand and popularity for our pizzas continuing to grow, we welcomed our first franchisees to help open more stores to satisfy the many mouths wanting Capers.
Rapid expansion of an established brand
With this solid foundation in place, Pizza Capers continued to grow steadily expanding across Queensland and into New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. In 2012, with almost 120 franchise outlets and solid growth plans in place, Pizza Capers became part of the Retail Food Group franchise family.
