1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza announced a major development deal that will expand the brand into key markets in South Carolina and Georgia. This marks the concept’s entrance into both states, joining the 34 locations based nationwide.
Galloway, New Jersey-based 1000 Degrees—the customizable fast-casual brand igniting cravings for Neapolitan pizza across the country—has signed the multi-unit franchise development agreement with Harrell Caines, a local entrepreneur with extensive background in the pizza and restaurant industries.
“The energy and excitement around 1000 Degrees right now is undeniable, and now is the perfect time to introduce South Carolina and Georgia to true, classic Neapolitan pizza,” says Brian Petruzzi, CEO and founder of 1000 Degrees. “From our authentic Neapolitan flavors to the incredible array of toppings, homemade sauces and crust options, we’re confident that 1000 Degrees is going to fan the flames of the region’s cravings for a truly one-of-a-kind pizza experience.”
Terms of the agreement include opening a total of 24 units between Charleston, Dorchester and Berkley Counties in South Carolina, along with Fulton and Cobb Counties in Georgia. The first location is slated for the Marietta Trade Center (280 Cobb Parkway, Suite 40) in Marietta, Georgia.
In addition to this development agreement, 1000 Degrees is actively pursuing growth throughout the United States in similarly attractive markets. Originating in Galloway, New Jersey, 1000 Degrees is renowned for its classic Neapolitan pizzas fired to perfection at 1000 degrees in a custom, handmade, revolving Neapolitan brick oven. With the option to limitlessly top each pie with more than 50 fresh ingredients, guests can completely customize each pizza to satisfy their every craving.
As 1000 Degrees expands, the brand is awarding franchise opportunities to qualified individuals driven to succeed who share the company’s vision and will follow the proven business model. Tailored to owners and operators that place value in strong ties to the community, the franchise opportunity provides structure and scalability.
Since launching in 2014, the brand has ignited significant growth across the country, with more than 75 locations open and in development across the country.
