In December, 1975, Bob Kalaydjian purchased the original Capri in Windsor, Ontario from its former owner who had already been serving great Capri Pizza. Although, the original pizza kitchen was small, the dreams, and aspirations of the new owner were not.
The Kalaydjian family’s hard work and their commitment to producing a quality product created priceless word of mouth advertising that led to the growth of their loyal customer base. Our enthusiastic, and loyal customers, and the hard working Capri staff are the foundation that this sucessful pizzeria has been built upon. When, in 1987 the restaurant next door to the pizzeria came up for sale, the Kalaydjians’ saw this as an opportunity for growth. The family purchased the location next door, renovated and re-opened its new home in 1989. Capri’s new location allowed them to expand their kitchen and open a restaurant where families could enjoy their great pizza in a casual dining environment.
In 1989, the first Capri Pizzeria franchise location opened in the city's east end to meet the demands of their growing customer base. To date, there are ten Capri Pizzeria locations committed to serving great pizza to the Windsor and Essex County.
Capri Pizzeria contributes its success to the continued support from our loyal customers, our dedicated, and hard working team of employees, and our strong Franchisees. By combining these complimentary ingredients, Capri Pizza has established a niche in the competitive pizza market within Windsor and Essex County.
Come out and enjoy our great pizza!
