If pizza and chicken hold a special place in your heart, this one’s for you. Pizza Maru, a Korean chain that specializes in chicken and pizza made with green tea dough, has finally arrived in Canada with its first location in North York.

Pizza Maru has over 650 locations across Korea and is loved for its “cheap yet delicious and high-quality pizza,” according to the chain’s CEO.

The restaurant has also gone global with storefronts in Beijing, the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, and Myanmar.

Pizza Maru serves many mouthwatering varieties of classic, Chicago, and long edge pies, as well as Korean fusion pasta, Korean fusion rice, and Tteokbokki simmered rice cakes.

There are many types of chicken dishes to choose from too, including vegetable fried chicken, Sweet Chilli Gangjeong, honey butter fried chicken, onion fried chicken, cheese snow fried chicken, and more.

“Pizza Maru is the sole brand in the world that serves rich topping Korean pizza and seasoned chicken with various delicious sauces at the same time,” says a description on the restaurant’s social media. Sounds like a dream combination to us!

The Toronto restaurant, which opens officially in March, is hiring for a number of positions. The salaries for Pizza Maru’s full-time kitchen roles range from $48,000 to $54,000 per year plus tips, and part-time staff is paid $16 to $18 per hour depending on experience.

Between Chick-fil-A and Kettlemans and so many more, you’ll need a big budget and an even bigger appetite to eat your way through Toronto’s ever-growing food scene.
