ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - A national chain known for its Mediterranean-influenced menu is coming to downtown Roanoke.

Poe & Cronk Real Estate Group announced Friday Pita Pit signed a lease for its first Roanoke location. The quickly expanding fast-casual restaurant will be located at 301 S. Jefferson Street at the corner of Jefferson and Kirk in the former Signature 9 Gallery space. The restaurant will offer walk-in, take-out and sit down service.

A date for the restaurant's Roanoke location opening was not available.

According to a release from the real estate group, Pita Pit's first U.S. restaurant opened in 1999. Pita Pit says it offers a healthier alternative to traditional fast food with its made-to-order pita sandwiches featuring a variety of grilled meats, fresh vegetables, cheeses and sauces - rolled up in a convenient package.
