PizzaRev Signs Agreement with Steak n’ Shake Franchisee to Bring Fast-Casual Pizza Leader to Tennessee and Northern Georgia

October 26, 2015 // Franchising.com // Los Angeles – PizzaRev, a fast-casual pizza concept backed by Buffalo Wild Wings, announced today that it signed a franchise agreement with Southern Restaurant Holdings, LLC to develop at least 16 restaurants across the state of Tennessee and Northern Georgia.

This is the 18th group of major restaurant brand operators PizzaRev has partnered with to expand the fast-casual pizza franchise across the country. Southern Restaurant Holdings, LLC, led by Robby Stewart, Andres Bolivar and Chip Hackett, currently owns and operates eight Steak n’ Shake restaurants in Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. The group is one of the largest franchisees in the Steak n’ Shake system and maintains the highest average unit volume in the system.

“We dug deep into the booming fast-casual pizza segment and PizzaRev was simply the most impressive,” said CEO of Southern Restaurant Holdings, LLC, Robby Stewart. “Great food and service is a must, but the company’s leadership and partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings makes PizzaRev a stand-out brand in this fast-growing restaurant space.”

There are more than 100 PizzaRev locations in various stages of development across the country. The brand currently operates 28 corporate and franchise locations throughout California, Colorado, Minnesota, South Dakota, Texas and Utah. PizzaRev also signed its first international franchise agreement in August 2015 to bring PizzaRev to Mexico.

“Robby, Andres and Chip bring a wealth of restaurant and marketing experience to our brand,” said Rodney Eckerman, co-founder and CEO of PizzaRev. “They are the high-caliber multi-unit operators we were seeking to bring PizzaRev to the Southeast.”

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. Named one of the “10 Brands to Watch” by CNBC and #15 in the FastCasual “Top 100 Movers and Shakers,” PizzaRev continues to seek out franchise partners who share the founders’ food-forward mission and commitment to giving back to the communities it serves.
