Entrepreneurial Couple Sees Potential in Budding Customizable Fast-Casual Pizza Brand
Galloway, N.J. – (August 17, 2016) – 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual restaurant serving authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza with an American spin, has signed a franchise agreement to bring two units to the Orlando area, the first of which is expected to open this fall. This is part of the brand’s rapid expansion throughout Florida, as 1000 Degrees will open restaurants in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Miami by the end of the year.
Franchise partners and husband and wife duo Caroline and Matt Peach of Peachy Pizza, LLC plan to open the two new Orlando 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza locations within the next six months. Both entrepreneurs and previous owners of several franchises, once Matt and Caroline had their first fast-casual pizza experience, they saw the business opportunity and wanted to capitalize for their next business venture.
“We ultimately decided on a partnership with 1000 Degrees because there is no nearby competition to the quality of the brand’s ingredients or level of customer service,” said Caroline. “We’re excited to introduce this upbeat and authentic brand to Orlando.”
1000 Degrees currently has more than 16 domestic restaurants open and one location in Malaysia. The international franchise is growing at a rapid paced is projected to open 170 units by the end of 2017.
“This two-unit agreement is a prime example of the increased demand for customizable, high quality pizza across the United States,” said CEO and Founder Brian Petruzzi. “We look forward to having the Peaches join our team to bring 1000 Degrees pizza to Orlando for the first time.”
1000 Degrees serves personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza. Unlike traditional Neapolitan pizza which has a slightly undercooked center and requires a fork and knife to eat, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza has fused this classic style with American flare. The result is a thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan style pizza.
