Pita Gourmet plans to open its third area location in a new retail building that Bevilacqua Development wants to construct on Transit Road in Clarence.

Bevilacqua is looking to build an 8,500-square-foot, single-story building with a drive-through at 6031 Transit Road, across from the Transit Valley Country Club, on the site of the former Buggy Wash self-serve car wash.
