On National Pizza Day, Above The Crust Announces National Expansion Plans
Authentic New York recipes and $75,000 in local community contributions make Above The Crust Las Vegas’ choice for National Pizza Day and they’re now franchising
February 07, 2020 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS, NV - Las Vegas-based Above The Crust has announced franchising plans, with the goal to expand nationwide. With their unique combination of community focus and the most authentic New York Italian food outside of New York, Above The Crust offers franchisees to be part of the family.
For Above The Crust, the crust is always the canvas and the community is forever family. From New York, to Las Vegas, and now expanding nationwide, the Above The Crust brand brings traditional pizza, wings and things from native East Coast owners Phyllis and Adam Barkin.
“The only thing we put more love into than our dishes is our community,” said Adam Barkin, President of Above The Crust. In the last four years, the pizza chain has raised over $75,000 for their local Las Vegas community through “Dine out for Dough”, a community fundraising program that supports a multitude of organizations such as schools, charities, school clubs and athletics and even local families facing challenging times. These fundraising nights give 20% of proceeds to the featured organization and on special occasions, 100% of proceeds are given. Recent recipients include Mamba Sports Foundation, Paul Culley Elementary School Musical Theater and Veterans Village Las Vegas.
Built on the simple mission of “Welcome to the Family,” whether you dine in or take out, Above the Crust is committed to bringing you home to Brooklyn. With generations-old family recipes from Phyllis, you’ll feel like you’re walking straight into grandma’s kitchen. From mozzarella-smothered Italian nachos to baked rigatoni to genuine philly cheesesteak pizzas, your taste buds will be sure to transport straight to the East Coast. Pizza wouldn't be served if the dough wasn't kneaded fresh daily or the marinara wasn't prepared traditionally with whole tomatoes.With ranch made from scratch and all natural Italian Grande Cheese sprinkled upon piping hot dishes, it’s hard to get more East Coast than this.
It isn't just that every customer is treated like family; to Above The Crust they truly are family. The team from Above The Crust is thrilled to offer franchise opportunities. It’s a chance to take real New York Italian food, and the family-oriented food culture, to your hometown.
