PizzaRev will open its 30th restaurant next month in California’s Inland Empire. The Buffalo Wild Wings backed fast-casual pizza concept will continue its growth momentum with plans to double its footprint to 60 open locations by the end of 2016. PizzaRev will enter five new states this year, including Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Ohio, and Tennessee and make its international debut in Mexico.
As the company looks ahead to a year of unit growth and product innovation, the PizzaRev team also celebrates significant milestones achieved in 2015. Named ‘Best Pizza’ by LA Daily News readers, the three-year-old brand is changing what consumers think about pizza, one community at a time. PizzaRev entered six new markets last year, including Boulder, Colorado; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; San Diego, Santa Barbara, Bakersfield, and Palmdale, California, and added nine new franchise groups for a total of 150 franchise stores in the development pipeline across the U.S. and Mexico.
“We look forward to a year of continued growth through corporate and franchise store development, with a focus on delivering the fastest, most healthful pizza dining experience available,” says Rodney Eckerman, CEO and cofounder of PizzaRev. “Revolutionary ideas and innovation are the cornerstone of our brand and we will continue to push the envelope in 2016 with new products that elevate our guests’ dining experience.”
In 2015, PizzaRev furthered its commitment to an all-natural, made-from-scratch menu. The company introduced a gluten-free, all-natural meatball made from beef raised without antibiotic and hormones and all-natural hormone-free chicken to its list of 30-plus artisanal toppings. Other elevated ingredients include locally sourced produce, when available. Last Summer, PizzaRev also unveiled six custom hot sauces on its ‘Rev It Up’ counter where guests can choose from a variety of ingredients to put the finishing touches on their custom, personal pizzas.
PizzaRev’s culinary innovations and enhancements, as well as its domestic and international expansion, is supported by partner Buffalo Wild Wing Inc. The company seeks additional franchise partners who share the founders’ food-forward mission and commitment to giving back to the communities it serves.
