PizzaRev Rolls Out Continued Colorado Expansion With New Fort Collins Location
Build-Your-Own Pizza Concept Brings the PizzaRev-olution to Fort Collins Featuring a 30-Tap, Self-Pour Beer, Cider and Wine Wall
February 06, 2018 // Franchising.com // FORT COLLINS, Colo. - PizzaRev is challenging diners to expect more from their pizza with a new location in Fort Collins recently opened on Jan. 18, situated north of the Oval at Colorado State University at 649 S. College Ave. The new PizzaRev in Fort Collins empowers guests to fully customize their personal pizzas, combining this experience with a revolutionary 30-tap self-pour beer, cider and wine wall.
To mark the grand opening, the build-your-own artisanal pizza shop in Fort Collins hosted a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event on Jan. 18 with a suggested $8 contribution for guests benefitting the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Larimer County, with 100 percent of each guest’s first donation pizza going back to the organization. The grand opening celebration continued through Jan. 20, when guests 21 years and older with valid ID received one free Craft Your Own pizza with a 16-oz beer purchase.
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 Fort Collins that has earned a loyal following for its revolutionary approach to an American favorite.
Mark Venditto, a seasoned restaurateur, owns the location, continuing the brand’s growth in the state. It is the first of four franchise locations planned for northern Colorado.
“As we continue to expand, our priority is to bring experienced franchisees on board who have the tools to launch PizzaRev into a new community, and to continue growing them across the state like Mark has done in Colorado,” said Ed Yancey, director of franchising for Cleveland Avenue, parent company of PizzaRev. “Mark is a skilled entrepreneur who is turning PizzaRev into the new favorite of families and students alike in Fort Collins. Mark is an ideal franchisee we would like to find in every new market - an experienced multi-unit operator who will make PizzaRev a mainstay in his or her community.”
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.
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 Venditto 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.
