Utilizing interactive technology used across Europe for over a decade by ADIAL, PizzaForno has built their brand on a proven technology platform. With nearly 200 units on track to open in 2023, PizzaForno currently has 52 operating locations across North America with over 500 committed (100 in the U.S. alone), with 16 U.S. locations opened in Michigan, Texas, and Louisiana, and Alabama.

Rapidly expanding since founders William Moyer and Les Tomlin introduced PizzaForno to Canadian consumers in 2018, the 24/7 digital pizzeria is gaining popularity throughout North America as consumers seek convenient, and tasty on-the-go options. With a tap of a screen, consumers can get a baked artisanal pizza in 3 minutes or a ‘take and bake’ option.

“We’ve experienced 300% growth over the past year, beginning with four U.S. locations and ending with 16 units, and an aggressive pipeline in development,” says Travis Edmondson, Chief Development Officer of PizzaForno. “Having worked with a variety of big-name pizza brands throughout my career, this scalable model is unlike anything the QSR space has seen before.”

With its small and easy-to-manage square footage, business owners are able to strategically place several unique locations across a desired territory, like hospitals, colleges, businesses, busy street corners, and other areas where foot traffic is high.

“PizzaForno will be the fastest growing [quick service] in terms of unit volume in 2023,” states Les Tomlin, Co-Founder and President of PizzaForno. “We have indoor and outdoor size units designed to fit just about anywhere and everywhere you can imagine people would appreciate 24/7 access to delicious pizza.”

As PizzaForno scales across the nation, the brand has also launched a Pizza with a Purpose program that serves as the foundation for how PizzaForno selects licensees to join in on the development of their “Pizzaruption.” In addition to staying focused on purpose driven initiatives, they work with each of their local owners to identify opportunities to help support non-profit organizations within their community.
