PizzaRev Franchise Celebrates Two Years of Crafting

Booming Build-Your-Own Pizza Concept Poised to Reach 65 Units in 2015

April 24, 2014 // // Los Angeles, CA - Two years ago, PizzaRev forever changed the rules of the Los Angeles pizza game by empowering customers to "Craft Their Own." The anniversary was marked yesterday with a special $5 pizza day at PizzaRev’s inaugural Northridge, Calif. location – the restaurant served more than 1,000 pizzas.

PizzaRev currently operates eight LA-area restaurants and is on pace to open 65 franchised and corporate locations across the country by the end of 2015. Named "Best New Restaurant 2013" by the L.A. Daily News, PizzaRev has some of the highest Yelp ratings of any pizza restaurant in LA. Guests also increasingly take to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to show off their uniquely crafted pizzas and sing PizzaRev’s praises for developing a completely customized, more satisfying pizza experience.

"There is tremendous growth potential for our build-your-own pizza franchise," said Rodney Eckerman, co-CEO of PizzaRev."We are a data-driven company; we have a keen focus on strong unit level economics, so our main concern is being best to market, versus first to market – our guest feedback and same-store sales growth prove our strategy is working."

Company executives plan to add 10 company-owned locations throughout California by the end of year. PizzaRev continues to seek experienced restaurant developers to franchise the brand in new markets across the country. Currently, franchise agreements have been signed to bring PizzaRev to Minneapolis, North Dakota, South Dakota, Austin, TX, St. Louis, San Diego, and Orange County, CA.
