December 22, 2017 // Franchising.com // SHREVEPORT, LA - PizzaRev is challenging diners to expect more from their pizza with a new location in Shreveport opening Dec. 6 located at 6301 Line Ave. To mark the grand opening, the growing build-your-own artisanal pizza shop is hosting a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event with 100% of the pizza sales benefitting the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, a no-kill shelter located in Shreveport.
With offerings such as fresh pressed homemade dough, locally sourced ingredients, all-natural cheeses and vegan and gluten-free options, PizzaRev brings a build-your-own artisanal pizza concept to Shreveport that has earned a loyal following for its revolutionary approach to an American favorite.
Local restaurateurs Mark Florsheim and Cassidy Kin are the owners of the new location, spearheading the brand’s growth in the state. It is the first PizzaRev location in Louisiana.
“As we grow into new markets, our top priority is finding the right franchisees to introduce PizzaRev to the community,” said Ed Yancey, director of franchising for Cleveland Avenue, parent company of PizzaRev. “Mark and Cassidy are the perfect people to make PizzaRev the new favorite pizza concept in Shreveport, and they represent the ideal franchisee we work to find in every new market - experienced multi-unit operators who will be strong ambassadors for the brand.”
PizzaRev offers a fully customized dining experience that empowers guests to craft a personal pizza, including any of the 30+ toppings, for one price. The restaurant also serves custom entrée salads and its famous Oreo dessert pizza. The Taproom boasts 41 draft beers, signature cocktails and a variety of wines. The bar and patio provide a unique dining experience unlike any other in the Shreveport area.
Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone-bed oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. Exposed ceilings, concrete floors and natural tones will offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere, where the focus is on providing guests with an interactive pizza experience unlike anything they’ve ever had.
PizzaRev is also committed to creating rewarding and supportive relationships with franchisees like Florsheim and Kin through robust corporate assistance, including training, marketing and operational support. The brand is currently accepting franchise inquiries from qualified restaurateurs with multi-unit operating experience.
