Firenza to Bring ‘Pizza Like Never Before’ to Houston

August 12, 2016 // // FAIRFAX, Va. – Firenza Pizza, a fast-casual chain that offers custom, made-to-order pizzas, has signed a deal to begin development in the greater Houston area.

This marks the first Firenza to enter Houston’s dynamic restaurant scene, with company plans for having as many as 20 area locations over the next several years.

“I am thrilled to get back into an industry I know and love, and bring a fresh take on Houston’s burgeoning fast-casual presence,” said Scott Moore, who signed the development deal. “Firenza simply offers today’s demanding customers what they crave - originality, speed of service, customization and premium products - in a sophisticated and highly welcoming environment.”

With over 40 years of business experience, Moore and his wife decided to revisit their roots in the hospitality industry. In addition to working in restaurants, and later owning and operating his own, Moore has extensive experience in the oil and gas industry. He has held technical and management positons for large corporations as well as his own consulting business.

Since offering the franchise opportunity in September 2015, Firenza has signed agreements totaling over 45 restaurants currently in various stages of development in Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, Wisconsin, and California.

“We are excited to welcome Scott to the family, and bring the first Firenza store to the Houston area,” said Dave Wood, co-founder and CEO of Firenza. “We are confident that he will make a bold statement in this dynamic and thriving market.”

Touting “Pizza Like Never Before,” Firenza offers fresh-baked pizzas with unlimited toppings per customer’s choice, for one low price.

The pizza dough is made in-house daily and hand-stretched to order. Customers can then customize their pizzas with unlimited toppings for one low price. The nearly 40 toppings include – six signature sauces, seven cheeses, nine meats and 17 veggies. For those customers who don’t want to create their pizzas from scratch, Firenza also offers eight, chef-inspired signature pizzas. Once the 10 or 15 inch pizzas are assembled, they’re baked in an open flame stone-hearth oven and guaranteed to be done within five minutes.
