PizzaRev announced the opening of its first restaurant in Guadalajara, Jalisco. It’s the first of 20 locations planned for the states of Nayarit, Colima, Jalisco, and Aguascalientes in Mexico. The development is led by StarGDL Corporation, which currently owns and operates 12 Carl’s Jr. restaurants throughout the Guadalajara region.

PizzaRev is the first American fast-casual pizza brand to make a major stake in growth across Mexico. The company entered Mexico in early 2016 and already operates three restaurants in greater Monterrey, Nuevo León.

“Our franchise partners in Mexico share our passion for bringing an entirely new and elevated pizza experience to their communities,” says Nicholas Eckerman, cofounder and co-CEO of PizzaRev. “Their years of restaurant experience and commitment to operational excellence make them ideal partners to bring the PizzaRev-olution to Guadalajara.”

PizzaRev is on a mission to change how consumers think about pizza, with offerings like fresh pressed, homemade dough, locally sourced ingredients, all-natural cheeses and vegan and gluten-free options. 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.

PizzaRev continues to seek out franchise partners in the U.S. and abroad who share the founders’ food-forward mission and commitment to giving back to the communities it serves.
