Toppazzini plans to take Topper's Pizza national

Topper's Pizza is embarking on its most ambitious business plan yet.

The Sudbury-based restaurant chain currently has 36 locations in Ontario. Now it's aiming to open 104 new franchise restaurants by 2018. They will be located in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.​

Kelly Toppazzini is the C-E-O of Topper's Pizza.

"It brings a lot of pride and recognition to people of Sudbury that some company is national and they've taken part in that either eating or working there," he said.

Sudbury's Toppazzini family has been feeding people across the Northeast for more than a hundred years. The family opened its first bakery in Copper Cliff in 1904. Topper's Pizza opened in 1982.

Toppazzini says the 2018 franchise expansion is just the beginning of a bigger business plan for Topper's Pizza.

He says he would like to see the company open up to 500 franchises across Canada.

I really hope the Northern Ontario company does well with expansion. Their pizza in my opinion is by far the best of any of the chains.

Some other restaurant chains that started in Northern Ontario:

Casey's (Sudbury, now part of Prime Restaurants)

Robin's Donuts (Thunder Bay)

Wacky Wings (Sault Ste. Marie)

I'm not brave enough to try it after hearing the complaints and stories that occurred over the years. Also, his advertising makes the pizza look disgusting.

Yes I've tried it at both locations there. But I don't think they have their Lakeshore one anymore, only the downtown location. Lived there for a year back in 1999. Very good pizza for sure. Their pasta dishes were very good as well.

It was among the best pizza I've eaten.

Lakeshore location was still there last time I went thru the bay and stopped. Last summer I think.
