PizzaRev announced today the launch of a comprehensive nutrition portal including complete allergen information and nutrition calculator, built by Nutritionix. PizzaRev is the first fast-casual pizza franchise to work with Nutritionix, the world’s largest open database of nutritional information.
“Our nutrition platform is designed to quickly provide guests the information they need to make the best food choices for their unique needs, something that has been lacking in the fast-casual pizza space until now,” said Nicholas Eckerman, co-founder and COO of PizzaRev. “Guests can now conveniently see how to build a PizzaRev pizza with less than 500 calories, filter out ingredients for preference or allergy, and much more. Nutritionix has built a world-class nutrition platform and we’re proud to be the first build-your-own pizza concept to deliver it to our guests.”
The nutrition portal is accessible through PizzaRev’s online menu and is mobile optimized. Guests are empowered to configure the nutritional makeup of their custom, personal pizzas on their smartphones while perusing the menu at PizzaRev’s 19 open restaurants.
“Restaurant chains come to Nutritionix when they want to go above and beyond in providing transparency to their customers,” said Danielle Colley, MS, RD, and Director of Nutrition for Nutritionix. “Nutritionix is proud to add PizzaRev to our growing list of restaurant chains who sincerely care about health and wellness for their customers.”
The nutrition portal launch is one of many PizzaRev initiatives that contribute to a healthful, high quality pizza experience, without sacrificing speed. PizzaRev’s original dough is homemade daily and proofed for 24 hours, while state-of-the-art dough presses allow the crew to create more than 100 pizzas per hour. Organic red sauce and all-natural Italian cheese are among PizzaRev’s staple ingredients, and the culinary team continuously seeks out locally sourced ingredients to add to a long list of artisanal toppings.
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, delicious cheeses, and over 30+ fresh toppings, everything is on display at PizzaRev and assembled right before your eyes. The pizzas are then fired in a 900-degree, stone-hearth 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 has 13 corporate restaurants and six franchise locations in operation, with additional franchises under development across Washington, D.C. and 11 states: CA, CO, MN, MO, ND, NV, NY, OH, SD, TX and UT.
Founded in 2010, Nutritionix has a mission to help consumers better understand what they eat. Nutritionix works with over 60 national restaurant chains to create customized interactive tools to calculate nutrition and avoid specific allergens.
