June 10, 2022 // // NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Mountain Mike’s Pizza, LLC, known for its crispy, curly pepperoni, Mountain-sized pizzas, toppings to the edge, and dough made fresh daily, has been honored as one of the nation’s top ten chains in Fast Casual’s 2022 Top 100 Movers and Shakers. The pizza franchise jumped 10 spots from last year’s ranking, moving to #9 this year.  Complementing the brand’s debut inside the top 10, the publication also named Mountain Mike’s Pizza President and COO Jim Metevier among the nation’s top 25 fast casual executives. For the past 17 years, the Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers has identified the industry’s most successful brands, centering on factors beyond profitability and growth such as innovation, leadership and creativity.

“We are extremely proud to see Mountain Mike’s Pizza recognized as a Top 10 Fast Casual food brand on this highly competitive list, and we’re equally proud of Jim for ranking so highly among other fast casual executives, a recognition of the exemplary leadership he has provided our brand over the past few years,” said Chris Britt, co-CEO and co-owner of Mountain Mike’s Pizza. “It is our incredibly experienced and dedicated franchisees combined with world class support from the team members at our Franchise Support Center that are creating not only one of the best franchised brands in all of food, but also a brand that will lead for decades to come.”

“Within the restaurant industry, numbers are so critical because they communicate so much about a brand, and I know everyone at Mountain Mike’s is uplifted by the performance data we continue to produce while simultaneously building on our four-decade legacy as a go-to destination for diners seeking a premier guest experience underpinned by fantastic food and family memories,” said Metevier.  “This accolade from Fast Casual is certainly an honor we are proud to receive - and a proof-point of our success as we continue to forge an ambitious path to the top of the fast casual pizza segment.”

In 2021, Mountain Mike’s debuted Mountain Mike’s University to provide enhanced digital training tools for new and existing franchisees. The brand also beefed up its professional sports activations by becoming an Official Pizza Partner of Angels Baseball and renewing an existing football partnership with the San Francisco 49ers.  Mountain Mike’s continues to build out a new and architecturally stimulating store design for all new openings, and successfully launched the Mountain Mike’s loyalty mobile app.
