PizzaREVolution: Emerging Brand to Meet Growing Demand in Central Valley and Southern California
PizzaRev awards existing franchisee key growth territories to grow footprint and meet consumer demand
March 06, 2019 // Franchising.com // BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Central Valley and Southern California are preparing for a revolution… of pizza, that is.
Fan favorite PizzaRev plans to build on its success in key markets by adding new locations to meet growing consumer demand. The brand has awarded key growth territories to existing franchisee Ajay Maini, who plans to open additional locations in Kern and Orange Counties.
Maini, who is an experienced multi-unit restaurant franchisee, owns two existing PizzaRev locations in Bakersfield and one in Palmdale, California.
“I love the concept of custom-made pizzas, and the level of quality and customer service PizzaRev offers made my decision to invest an easy one – I was hooked from the beginning,” said Maini. “The support that PizzaRev offers its franchisees got me off to a great start, they have set me up for success to grow my three existing locations as well as expand my portfolio with the brand.”
In addition to his three PizzaRev restaurants, Maini has owned multiple franchise units of a top sandwich chain since 2006. His extensive experience in restaurant franchising prepared him for the endeavor with PizzaRev.
“Ajay’s industry experience and operations knowhow has been integral to establishing his Bakersfield and Palmdale restaurants as local favorites,” said Tyan Swanson, senior manager of marketing and franchise sales at PizzaRev. “His existing connections in the community and previous success in the restaurant franchising industry made him the ideal PizzaRev partner. It is great to see our footprint growing in the Central Valley and we’re excited to help Ajay expand PizzaRev’s presence in Southern California, as well.”
PizzaRev is committed to creating rewarding and supportive relationships with franchisees like Maini through robust corporate assistance, including training, marketing and operational support. The brand is currently accepting franchise inquiries from hospitality-minded people passionate about customer service who have experience in operating restaurants or multi-unit operators who would like to expand their portfolio.
