1000 Degrees Opens New Gilbert, Arizona, Store

    Industry News | June 15, 2016

    1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, is coming to SanTan Village with the opening of its Gilbert, Arizona, location on Thursday, June 16. The new restaurant is located at 2224 East Williams Field Road, Suite 112, next to Chipotle.

    To celebrate the new restaurant, the first 10 guests through the doors on Thursday, June 16 at 11 a.m. will win free pizza for a year. In addition, all guests who visit the grand opening between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. and like 1000 Degrees on Facebook or follow on Instagram or Twitter will receive a free 10-inch pizza of their choice.

    1000 Degrees serves beer and wine in addition to personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza, including a gluten-free option. Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen, hand-tossed dough, created with authentic Neapolitan “00” flour and available in both a personal 10-inch and shareable 14-inch sizes. Guests then choose to create their own pizza or order one of the 1000 Degrees Favorites.

    The Gilbert 1000 Degrees location is the second location to open in Arizona and is operated by Randy and Ban Kassab of Capital Pizza Ventures. The group owns an additional location in the Scottsdale 101 Shopping Center, and plans to open a third location within the next year. 

    “Ban and I look forward to opening our doors in SanTan Village and continuing to share our love for pizza with the metro Phoenix area,” says Randy Kassab.

    Unlike traditional Neapolitan pizza, which has a slightly undercooked center and requires a fork and knife to eat, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza has fused this classic style with American flare. The result is a thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan style pizza.

    “1000 Degrees is on fire and we’re certainly heating up the Phoenix area with the opening of our second location in Arizona,” says founder and CEO Brian Petruzzi. “I’m confident that we serve the best hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza in the area and provide an unparalleled customer experience that will keep people coming back for more.”
