Complaint / review text:
Be aware! I am one of many victims who paid money to the companies (Anthony's Kitchen, Anthony's Pizza Uno and Pizza One) run by Reza Solhi (aka Anthony) and his family to buy pizza franchise restaurants but received nothing.
Reza Solhi (Anthony) was running 3 companies incorporated under the directorship of Ashraf (Ashley) Mirkhan, his mother, in Thornhill, Ontario (8500 Leslie Street LeParc Office Tower).
Reza Solhi, introduced himself as Anthony, was selling Pizza Franchise restaurants to us promising that the new franchise locations will be build soon. He took huge amount of deposit from several of us, sold locations for which they did not have leases, sold same locations (again had no leases) to more than one.
Solhi refused to refund deposits to us when we learned that the locations will not be available and about Solhi's past business conducts.
When Reza Solhi owned 3 for 1 Pizza & Wings (Canada) Inc (prior to running 3 new companies), he was charged with 25 counts of fraud over $5,000 due to targeted new Canadians with the promise of ready-to-operate outlets, but they did not supply the outlets and refused to refund payments.
Solhi and the companies are disappeared from the Thornhill office new and continue to run their business from an unknown location. The Anthony's Kitchen (http://www.anthonyskitchen.com) has only list a toll free number and email address as contact information.
We have learned that they are contacting people to sell franchises throughout the nation and USA. So, Be AWARE!
Reza Solhi's common-law spouse, Julia Pronesti, uncle/stepfather, Behnam Solhi, mother Ashref Mirkhan and brother Sam Solhi help him to run his rip-off franchise business.
