Award-winning fast-casual pizza concept, PizzaRev, will make its Colorado debut this summer in Boulder, followed closely by a second location in Lafayette. The build-your-own pizza shop was founded in April 2012 and has since grown to 27 open restaurants.
PizzaRev expansion into Colorado is led by franchise partners Randy and Deanna Chilton and long time restaurateur Dough Koch. Koch currently owns and operates 90 Denny’s restaurants and six Del Taco restaurants.
“We are thrilled to partner with Doug in our business venture and to be a part of PizzaRev — a brand that is revolutionizing America’s favorite food. We’re eager to introduce this new dining experience to the Boulder and Lafayette communities,” says Chilton.
Unlike other build-your-own pizza concepts, PizzaRev offers guests an 11-inch custom pizza with as many toppings they choose, for one price. The distinctive Craft Your Own pizza assembly process begins with crust selection, either original or gluten-free, each one pressed into a thin canvas from a plump, homemade dough ball. Guests then choose from four signature sauces, including a savory organic red sauce, a creamy alfredo, and a spicy-sweet BBQ. Finally, the pie is completed with selections from an array of artisanal cheeses and 30-plus fresh ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage, anchovies, and fresh-picked basil and arugula.
PizzaRev’s interior design is sleek, simple, and modern. Exposed ceilings, concrete floors, and natural tones offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere, where the focus is on providing the guest an interactive pizza experience. What enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, high-degree stone hearth oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes.
PizzaRev has earned a loyal following among Southern California fans that continues to spread across the country as the brand enters new markets. Named one of the “10 Brands to Watch” by CNBC, PizzaRev has captured the attention and affection of investors and consumers alike. The company continues to seek out franchise partners who share the founders’ food-forward mission and commitment to giving back to the communities it serves.
