Mississauga residents may soon get their first take out beer from one of Canada’s oldest pizza joints.

Last year, Pizza Pizza announced they would be adding beer to the menu with a handful of restaurants in Hamilton to start.

“We know some of our customers enjoy beer with their pizza or wings, they’ve told us this many times over the years. So, we thought, we should sell beer and make it available for delivery,” said Adrian Fuoco, vice president of marketing at Pizza Pizza in a press release.

Pizza Pizza had plans to license most of its restaurants across the country by the end of 2021. But beer hasn’t made it to the Pizza Pizza menu in Mississauga yet.

“We currently do not have any locations in Mississauga selling beer, although we have a number of applications in the works,” a Pizza Pizza spokesperson tells inSauga.

There are about 35 locations in or near the GTA that offer beer – mostly in Toronto and Hamilton, the spokesperson said.

That may soon change.

There are three applications for liquor sales licences currently filed with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario for Pizza Pizza restaurants in Mississauga.

The locations are 707 Lakeshore Rd. E., 1093 Dundas St. W. and 6277 Mississauga Rd.

The deadline for submission to oppose the applications is Aug. 25 for the Mississauga Road location, Aug. 26 for the Dundas store, and Sept. 2 for the Lakeshore location.

Pizza Pizza opened in 1967 in Canada.
