PizzaRev Signs Multi-Unit Franchise Agreement for Expansion in Reno, NV

August 03, 2015 // // Los Angeles – PizzaRev, a fast-casual pizza concept backed by Buffalo Wild Wings, announced today the addition of a new franchise group to develop the brand in greater Reno, NV. Franchise owner Jill Lillaney signed a multi-unit agreement to bring PizzaRev to Reno, Carson City, and Sparks, NV. Lillaney currently owns and operates 23 Burger King restaurants throughout Sacramento, CA and Reno, NV.

“We’re proud to partner with Jill and her team to bring an entirely unique pizza experience to the Reno market,” said Rodney Eckerman, co-founder and CEO of PizzaRev. “She is an accomplished multi-unit restaurant operator and her experience in the industry is a tremendous asset to our franchise system.”

Beyond its 17 corporate locations in greater Los Angeles, PizzaRev currently operates franchise locations across Minnesota, Utah, Texas and South Dakota. The brand will enter five new states before the end of the year, including Nevada, Colorado, Ohio, Massachusetts and New York.

“After exploring a handful of concepts in the fast-casual pizza space, it was PizzaRev’s deliberate expansion plan that impressed me the most,” said Lillaney. “The growth is fast but well managed and that will ensure long-term success for franchisees and the brand. We’re looking forward to bringing the pizza revolution to Reno!”

PizzaRev continues to expand nationally with support from partner Buffalo Wild Wings Inc., who in 2013 announced an equity-investment in PizzaRev and announced an increase in their stake in 2014. The brand has earned a loyal following among Southern California fans that continues to spread across the country as the company enters new markets. Named one of the “10 Brands to Watch” by CNBC and #15 in the FastCasual “Top 100 Movers and Shakers,” 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.
