In 1975, Mr. Kalaydjian purchased the original Capri from its former owner who had already been serving great Capri Pizza. Although, the original pizza kitchen was small, the aspirations of the new owner were not. The family’s hard work, and their commitment to producing a quality product created priceless word of mouth advertising.
When, in 1987 the restaurant next door to the pizzeria came up for sale, the family saw this as an opportunity for growth. The family purchased the location, renovated and re-opened its new home in 1989. Capri’s new home allowed them to expand their kitchen and open a restaurant where families could enjoy their great pizza in a casual dining environment.
A few years later 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 Windsor and Essex County. Capri Pizzeria attributes its success to our loyal customers, our dedicated and incredibly hard working team, and our strong and committed franchisees.
