May 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO - Urban Bricks Pizza, a fast-casual chain serving next generation, quick Artisan pizza and salad, is responding to America’s demand for ’Brickin’ Good’ Neapolitan pizza. The company has more than 120 locations in development after launching the franchise less than two years ago.
Urban Bricks offers authentic, customizable Neapolitan pizza with an all-American attitude. The concept was founded in the Alamo City by build-your-own franchise veteran, Sammy Aldeeb, who previously owned more than 20 franchise locations between Marble Slab Creamery, Subway and Great American Cookie Co. before launching his own brand. The brand caters to America’s love for delicious, fast yet authentic food.
Unlike other fast-casual pizza concepts, Urban Bricks offers delivery, drive-thru and full bar options. Currently there are 11 locations open in Texas and Ontario, Canada, with six under construction and 25 committed leases. There are more than 120 committed stores through Urban Bricks’ master franchise agreements. Franchise investors are breaking ground in Texas, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oregon, Missouri and Canada.
“At Urban Bricks, we give people what they want. We’re going where other fast-casual pizza concepts haven’t, and that’s what makes us so successful. We understand guests want to build their own masterpieces but don’t want to wait a lifetime for their works of art to be completed. Our restaurants are hip, and people eat with their eyes first. Our service is fast, yet Urban Bricks still offers the best damn pizza around,” said Aldeeb.
Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen dough made in-house every morning that was designed by World Pizza Champion Michele d’Amelio. Gluten-friendly and wheat options are also available. Customers can choose from more than 30 ingredients that are prepared fresh each morning to top their pizza. Urban Bricks uses flour, cheese and tomatoes imported from Italy. Guests also have the option to select from build-your-own salads, wings and premium Italian gelato.
Perfectly combining true, Italian Neapolitan pizza with American flare, Urban Bricks locations feature a stunning lime green oven imported from Italy. The rotating oven cooks the pizza to perfection in just two minutes.
For those looking to invest in America’s love for pizza, the total investment, from buying an Urban Bricks franchise to selling slices, ranges from $195,000 to $680,000. Previous restaurant experience is advantageous. The brand is currently looking to expand nationwide, especially in the southeastern corridor between Texas and Florida. Urban Bricks is the only fast-casual pizza concept to offer master franchise agreements for new markets. For markets where an Urban Bricks Pizza is present, single unit agreements are available.
