PizzaRev – Boulder will give 100 percent of donations to giveSPORTS, which is a partnership between “I Have a Dream” Foundation of Boulder County and A Precious Child that provides new and gently-used sports equipment and fee scholarships to children.
“We are passionate supporters of organizations that positively impact our community, and we admire the work ‘I Have a Dream’ Foundation and A Precious Child have done to help children have brighter futures,” said PizzaRev – Boulder Franchise Owner, Randy Chilton. “We look forward to supporting the giveSPORTS program and introducing the Boulder community to the PizzaRev-olution!”
“The partnership between A Precious Child and the ‘I Have A Dream Foundation’ of Boulder County has helped many underprivileged youth participate in sports in Boulder over the years through the giveSPORTS program,” said A Precious Child CEO and Founder, Carina Martin. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with PizzaRev on this event. It will enable us to grow our impact and help local youth build their self-confidence, skills and teamwork through sports.”
PizzaRev is an award-winning pizza concept that features a distinctive “Craft Your Own” pizza assembly process and a Roman-style thin and crispy pizza. It starts with the crust selection, either original or gluten-free, each one pressed into a thin canvas from a homemade dough ball. Guests then choose from four signature sauces, including a savory organic red sauce, a creamy white alfredo, a spicy-sweet BBQ, or olive oil. Finally, each personally-sized masterpiece is completed with favorite selections from an array of all-natural cheeses and 30+ fresh artisanal ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage and fresh-picked basil and arugula. Each pizza, no matter how many ingredients are selected, costs $8.25.
Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone hearth 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. With literally hundreds of millions of combinations to create, PizzaRev keeps guests coming back eager to try the latest creation they crave.
To further celebrate the opening of the new Boulder restaurant, PizzaRev is hosting a free-to-enter sweepstakes where five lucky guests will win Free Pizza for a Year.
