Los Angeles, CA (RestaurantNews.com) PizzaRev, a fast-casual pizza concept backed by Buffalo Wild Wings, announced today that it signed a franchise agreement with Satyen Shah, Mohammad Amar Chaudhry and Harmeet Singh to develop franchise locations across New Jersey, including the cities of Wayne, Clifton, Secaucus and Jersey City, and Bergen County. Managing Partner, Satyen Shah, has been in the restaurant industry for more than 20 years and previously owned and operated nine quick-service concepts in the greater New York area.
“After doing our due-diligence in the fast-casual pizza segment, PizzaRev stood out for its superior ingredients and customer service,” said Shah. “I’m eager to bring the PizzaRev-olution to the community that I’ve called home for more than 30 years.”
There are more than 100 PizzaRev locations in various stages of development across the country. The brand currently operates 28 corporate and franchise locations throughout California, Colorado, Minnesota, South Dakota, Texas and Utah. PizzaRev will also open its first international location in Mexico in Q1 2016.
PizzaRev continues to expand nationally with support from partner Buffalo Wild Wings Inc., who in 2013 announced an equity-investment in PizzaRev and announced an increase in their stake in 2014. Named one of the “10 Brands to Watch” by CNBC and #15 in the FastCasual “Top 100 Movers and Shakers,” PizzaRev continues to seek out franchise partners who share the founders’ food-forward mission and commitment to giving back to the communities it serves.
PizzaRev is a “build-your-own” fast-casual pizza concept that has reinvented the way America eats its favorite food. Guests are empowered to fully customize a personal-sized 11″ pizza for one price. Homemade dough options, flavorful sauces, all-natural cheeses, and more than 30+ artisanal toppings, everything is on display at PizzaRev and assembled right before your eyes. The pizzas are then fired in a 900-degree, stone-bed oven which produces a thin and crispy Roman-style pizza in just three minutes. Los Angeles-based PizzaRev was founded in 2012; the executive team possesses a combination of Fortune 500 operating experience and high-profile restaurant management.
PizzaRev is currently franchising and announced a strategic partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings in 2013. The company currently operates 28 locations with more than 100 additional franchises under development in Mexico, across Washington, D.C. and 12 states: CA, CO, MA, MN, MO, ND, NV, NY, OH, SD, TX and UT.
