Pizza 73 is a Canadian restaurant chain that offers a number of different styles of pizza, along with chicken wings. It has been operated by Pizza Pizza since 2007.[1] Toronto-based Pizza Pizza had acquired the restaurant for a total of $CAN70.2 million.[1] There are 89 locations throughout Western Canada, which include the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. The restaurant's name originates from its original phone number: 473–7373.[2] Founded by David Tougas and Guy Goodwin in 1985,[1] Pizza 73 is headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada,[3] with Michael Overs serving as the restaurant's chairman.[1]

It was the first delivery chain in Western Canada that provided a centralized call center, allowing customers to order their meal by phone; Pizza 73 has allowed orders online by the internet since 1995.[1][4] The restaurant has been recognized as one of Canada's 50 best managed services,[1] and one of Alberta's 50 fastest growing companies by Alberta Venture.[1] On August 18, 2011, Pizza 73 launched its iPhone application, thus allowing potential customers a new way to order food.[5]
