Los Angeles, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Long-time restaurant operators Mike Tochluk, Alan Shearer, and Chuck Kwon will soon open the doors to Long Island’s first PizzaRev, an award-winning fast-casual pizza concept backed by Buffalo Wild Wings.
The first of four Long Island locations will open March 31, 2016 at 408 Jericho Turnpike in Syosset, NY. The Syosset PizzaRev will be closely followed by locations at the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, the Tanger Outlets in Deer Park, as well as on Motor Parkway in Hauppauge.
“Long Island has some of the best pizza in the world,” says Tochluk, who grew up on Long Island and previously operated several Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants with Kwon and Shearer. “What PizzaRev offers is a faster and more nutritious alternative to the traditional pizzeria. We’re eager to introduce our communities to the PizzaRev-olution!”
New York is one of five new states that PizzaRev will enter this year, including Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio, and Tennessee. The company will also make its international debut in Mexico shortly after opening in New York. There are currently more than 150 additional PizzaRev restaurants in various stages of development across the U.S. and Mexico.
PizzaRev is on a mission to change how consumers think about pizza, with offerings like fresh pressed, homemade dough, locally sourced ingredients, all-natural cheeses and vegan and gluten-free options. PizzaRev offers a fully-customized dining experience that empowers guests to craft a personal pizza, including any of the 30+ toppings, for one price. The restaurant also serves custom entrée salads, a delectable Oreo dessert pizza, and a selection of beer and wine.
PizzaRev’s culinary innovations, as well as its domestic and international expansion, is supported by partner Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. The company seeks additional 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.
