PizzaRev announced today the addition of two franchise groups to bring the fast casual, build-your-own pizza concept to Sacramento and Riverside County, California.

“While we continue to develop our corporate store footprint throughout greater Los Angeles, we’re focused on working with experienced multi-unit restaurant operators to realize the brand’s growth potential in new markets across the country,” says Irv Zuckerman, co-founder and CEO of PizzaRev. “Our new California franchise partners are great additions to the team.”

Harvind and Bob Uppal inked the deal to develop PizzaRev throughout the Sacramento, CA market. The group currently owns and operates 38 restaurants across the San Francisco Bay area, including Burger King, Taco Bell, Wingstop, and Corner Bakery.

Sam Samaan and Will Karas, who have 25 yeas of combined restaurant experience, will expand PizzaRev to Western Riverside County, California. They currently own and operate four Popeyes and three Jersey Mike’s Subs across California’s Inland Empire.

Beyond its 15 corporate locations in greater Los Angeles, PizzaRev currently operates franchise locations across five states. The company is on pace to open eight new restaurants in the first quarter of 2015.
