Restaurants will debut in Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri and Nebraska by end of year and kick off market expansion for more than 50 sites.
DALLAS – (October 28, 2014) – RedBrick Pizza, the fast-casual restaurant serving up fresh, fire-roasted gourmet pizza, sandwiches and salads, today announced plans to expand the signature open-flame brick oven pizza chain by more than 50 locations in four states over the next 3 years.
The first five locations showcasing the chain’s signature open-flame brick oven as well as two new restaurant designs are scheduled to open in time for Holiday shopping in: Oakbrook Center in Chicago, IL; Mall St. Matthews in Louisville, KY; Northpark Mall in Joplin, MO; South County Center in St. Louis, MO; and Oakview Mall in Omaha, NE.
The announcement comes after BRIX Holdings, LLC, an innovative multi-concept franchising company, acquired RedBrick Pizza in fall 2013 with plans to update the store design, invest in operations, marketing, and support, and expand the better-for-you pizza concept through franchising across the country.
The five newest RedBrick Pizza locations initially will be corporate-owned, but will be available for sale to franchise prospects with restaurant experience who are interested in opening future outlets. RedBrick Pizza currently operates 13 franchised locations primarily in California and Florida.
“Of all the pizza concepts emerging in the fast-casual segment, we believe RedBrick Pizza is among the healthier alternatives for consumers. We see growing demand for health conscious menus created with high-quality products. RedBrick Pizza with gluten-free pizza options, the freshest ingredients and no butter in the house is poised to become a fan favorite in each market,” said Joe Vitrano, CEO of BRIX Holdings.
RedBrick is one of five franchise concepts owned by BRIX Holdings, which specializes in supporting and growing restaurant franchises which cater to healthy eating trends and with strong potential to expand. The company is well-known for the award-winning Red Mango® Cafe and Smoothie Factory® Juice Bar chains.
