PizzaRev announced today an agreement with seasoned restaurateurs, Marc Phaneuf, Jr. and Marc Phaneuf, Sr., to bring LA’s favorite build-your-own pizza concept to Boston. The freshly inked deal calls for at least 10 PizzaRev units to open throughout Boston in the next four years.
This is the 14th franchise group PizzaRev partnered with to expand the fast-casual pizza concept across the country. The Phaneufs and team have more than 20 years of restaurant operating experience and currently own and operate eight Hooters restaurants in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.
“We were seeking a brand to complement the success of our casual dining restaurants, and after exploring several fast-casual pizza franchises, PizzaRev was the standout,” said Phaneuf. “The concept embodies everything that has made the fast-casual dining segment so popular: quality food and a superior guest experience, without sacrificing speed. PizzaRev will soon be Boston’s favorite new pizza spot.”
Dubbed the “Pizza without Compromise,” PizzaRev offers the better alternative to what customers are used to from their local pizza delivery or pizza by the slice options. In providing guests a fully customized, personal pizza that is oven-fired in three minutes, pizza is now a faster and more healthful option for both lunch and dinner. PizzaRev’s 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 14 corporate restaurants and seven franchise locations in operation, with additional franchises under development across Washington, D.C. and 12 states: CA, CO, MA, MN, MO, ND, NV, NY, OH, SD, TX and UT.
