Las Vegas, NV (RestaurantNews.com) Award-winning fast-casual pizza concept, PizzaRev, makes its Las Vegas market debut today with the Grand Opening of a restaurant at 1381 W. Sunset Road in Henderson, NV. This is the first of three planned locations for greater Las Vegas, with a second restaurant soon to follow at the intersection of Rainbow Blvd. and Badura Ave. in Las Vegas.
PizzaRev Henderson and the subsequent Las Vegas locations are owned and operated by local franchise partners Tom McDonald and Steve Keith. Their group currently operates 45 Burger King restaurants throughout Las Vegas, NV as well as 10 Panera Bread restaurants across Orange County, CA.
The Grand Opening of the new Henderson restaurant will be marked with a ‘Pizzas for a Purpose’ fundraising event to benefit After-School All-Stars, a local non-profit providing opportunities for underprivileged youth to participate in free after-school and summer programs that focus on academics, athletics and cultural enrichment. On February 25, PizzaRev guests are invited to ‘pay-what-they-want’ for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza, with a suggested $8 contribution to benefit the local organization.
“We’re long-time supporters of After-School All-Stars and the work they do to positively impact the lives of thousands of children throughout greater Las Vegas,” said Steve Keith. “We look forward to supporting the mission of After-School All-Stars and introducing Las Vegas to the PizzaRev-olution!”
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.
Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone-bed 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. Exposed ceilings, concrete floors and natural tones will offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere, where the focus is on providing guests with an interactive pizza experience unlike anything they’ve ever had.
