PizzaRev signed a deal to bring three new franchise locations to the Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads areas—the first in the state.
With a build-your-own artisanal pizza experience offering fresh pressed homemade dough, locally sourced ingredients, all-natural cheeses and vegan and gluten-free options, the new PizzaRev franchises will open in the area over the next three years.
Hitash Patel and his family, owners of the new Virginia Beach and surrounding Hampton Roads restaurants, are veterans in the franchise restaurant category. The Patels have more than 30 years of experience owning and operating leading franchise brands.
“As we grow into new markets, our top priority is finding experienced franchisees who will serve as strong brand ambassadors to introduce PizzaRev to the community,” says Ed Yancey, director of franchising for Cleveland Avenue, parent company of PizzaRev. “The Patels represent the ideal franchisees we work to find in every new market—experienced multi-unit operators who will make PizzaRev a mainstay in their community.”
PizzaRev has earned a loyal following for its revolutionary approach to an American favorite, with more than 45 locations across the country. PizzaRev offers a fully customized dining experience that empowers guests to craft a personal pizza, including any of the 30-plus toppings, for one price. The restaurant also serves custom entrée salads and its famous Oreo dessert pizza.
Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone-bed oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. Exposed ceilings, concrete floors and natural tones will offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere, where the focus is on providing guests with an interactive pizza experience unlike anything they’ve ever had.
PizzaRev is also committed to creating rewarding and supportive relationships with franchisees like the Patels through robust corporate assistance, including training, marketing and operational support. The brand is currently accepting franchise inquiries from qualified restaurateurs with multi-unit operating experience.
