UNA Pizza and Native Tongues announce new locations in University District

Two popular hospitality groups to open new concepts in Calgary's NW

Two very popular Calgary restaurants have just announced their expansion to the city's University District, giving the ever-growing area a much-needed contemporary dining boost.

With expected openings some time in 2024, UNA Pizza and Native Tongues will take up their respective spaces at the base of The Forge, a residential rental building which is currently in construction.

This will be the third location for Thank You Hospitality's popular taco-centric eatery.

"The Calgary community has been so supportive of our brand since we opened our first location in 2015 and second location in Britannia Plaza earlier this year. We believe our partnership with University District will provide another amazing opportunity to serve Calgarians in this incredible development,” said Cody Willis, founder of Thank You Hospitality Group, in today's announcement.

Founded in 2010, UNA still remains one of Calgary's most popular pizzerias. Somewhat recently, it switched hands from its original owners to the Saskatoon-based Taste Hospitality Group. This University District location will be the fourth in Calgary and its sixth total across Alberta and Saskatchewan.

“We pride ourselves on being a neighbourhood restaurant." said Carmen Hamm, co-owner of Taste Hospitality Group. "We are looking forward to calling U/D home in addition to our current locations in Calgary, Banff and Saskatoon.”
