To celebrate the June 9 Grand Opening of PizzaRev in Lafayette, the restaurant hosted a fundraiser to benefit Sister Carmen Community Center, a human services resource center that provides assistance to residents of East Boulder County who are in need. Guests were invited “pay-what-they-want” for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza, with a suggested $8 donation. More than $6,000 was raised to benefit Lafayette-based Sister Carmen Community Center.
The Lafayette opening follows PizzaRev’s initial Colorado debut in Boulder at 1650 28th Street. Both locations are owned and operated by Randy and Deanna Chilton, who are 17 year Westminster residents. They are franchise partners with Doug Koch, a long time restaurateur who currently owns and operates 90 Denny’s restaurants and 6 Del Taco restaurants.
“Randy and his team share our passion for giving back to the communities we serve, and we’re proud of the positive impact they made already on the greater Boulder area,” said Nicholas Eckerman, co-founder and President of PizzaRev.
