NEW YORK, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — SKINNYPIZZA, a Long Island based company that has developed a very thin and crispy pizza with great taste by using no preservatives or additives has signed an exclusive deal with Mogull Realty for multi-unit expansion into Manhattan. Kim Mogull, founder and CEO of Mogull Realty says, “Skinny is poised to become the next Starbucks. Just like Whole Foods, the restaurant caters to people who want delicious, healthy food options.” SKINNYPIZZA is seeking mall locations and flagships in urban markets. Mogull Realty singlehandedly closed $150 million in leasing transactions in the last 12 months.
Michael Tenedorio, Partner in SKINNYPIZZA said: “We couldn’t be more excited to work with Kim Mogull. She not only represents our brand she understands it. Kim is not just looking to lease us any spot, she knows where we need to be for our brand to succeed in today’s market. For us to land an opportunity and secure one of New York City’s premier business addresses, The World Financial Center as our Flagship, just goes to show you how Kim Mogull and Mogull Realty really believes in our brand. In business today it’s hard to find people like Kim.”
Joseph Vetrano, Founder, President of SKINNYPIZZA said: “Kim Mogull is the perfect fit for SKINNYPIZZA. Her knowledge of Manhattan and large list of landlords that she deals with will help us secure the best available locations.” Joseph also stated, “We are a privately owned company and, along with the WFC opening later this year, we are looking to secure space on the Upper East Side and in the Midtown area. We plan on being very aggressive in the NYC market, and our goal is to have 16 to 18 operating locations within 36 months. New York City residents today are more health and environmentally conscious than ever before and we feel they are more than ready for us. Mayor Bloomberg is going to love SKINNYPIZZA. We have no salt shakers, no high fructose corn syrup in any of our products, and our cups are 16 ounces already (always have been) and they’re made from plants. We plan on awarding franchise territories later this year both in the US and International Markets.”
SKINNYPIZZA state that they use 100 percent organic tomatoes in making the pizza sauce and use all natural toppings that are antibiotic-free, hormone-free and nitrate-free.
