PizzaForno, North America’s first automated pizzeria that bakes high-quality pizza, 24 hours a day, has opened a new location, open to the public, at 256 Redfern Village in St. Simons Island, GA 31522.

The Entrepreneurs Behind the Expansion

  • Behind this exciting new PizzaForno location are husband-and-wife duo Tanner and Holley Rogers, who boast an extensive background in owning and operating local restaurants.
  • After starting a family and seeking more flexible hours, they purchased Sammies, a local sandwich shop specializing in grab-and-go lunches. While searching for other options to bring to the community, they discovered PizzaForno and jumped on the partnership opportunity.

“As we launch the very first PizzaForno unit in the area, we’re filled with excitement for what’s to come,” said Holley Rogers. “At Sammies, we’re all about convenience, without sacrificing taste. We’re thrilled to expand on this idea and offer our neighbors and visitors a quick, delicious, option, 24/7.”

Tanner and Holley have also customized their PizzaForno unit with glass doors. “Though the unit is completely operational from the outside, we welcome customers to come in to Sammies when we’re open and see this impressive piece of technology at work,” Holley adds.

“This expansion underscores our commitment to innovation and meeting the evolving needs of our valued customers,” said Les Tomlin, Co-Founder and President of PizzaForno. “With Holley and Tanner’s extensive experience in the hospitality sector and their dedication to delivering delicious and convenient food options to their community, we’re thrilled to witness PizzaForno flourish in new territories.”
