Big Changes Coming to Pitablilites
Launched in 2011, Pitabilities food truck is one of Columbus’ most popular. In just three years, they have become mainstays on Ohio State’s campus, where they frequently serve lunch, as well as at hospitals around the city who depend on them for a cheap, tasty meal.
Several festivals around the city would not be the same without Pitabilities, who specializes in serving made-to-order pitas with international flavors. Founded by Jim Pashovich, there are now three Pitablilites trucks in operation, with plans already in the works to introduce a fourth.
That’s where Chad Shipman comes in. A graduate of the Fisher College of Business, Shipman was born into the food industry, and has spent many years running his own business. He’s being brought on board at Pitabilities as their new Director of Operations.
“I am very excited to bring on Chad,” shares Pashovich on the hire. “His experience in logistics, food service, and his entrepreneurial spirit will help guide the company through its next phase.”
That includes moving into a new food truck facility in the next couple months, adding additional food trucks, and eventually, opening brick-and-mortar restaurants. Shipman will head up day-to-day operations, which includes fiscal responsibilities, supply chain management, and employee development.
Look for the Pitabilities food truck at the upcoming Park Street Festival on June 6th and 7th, and at the Whitehall Food Truck & Fun Festival on July 26th. They will also be regualrs at the Food Truck Court at the Columbus Commons which kicks off on May 8th.
