PizzaRev announced March 19 that Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. has taken a minority position in its innovative “Craft Your Own” fast-casual pizza concept. PizzaRev burst onto the scene in Los Angeles and in less than a year has earned rave reviews from fans and critics alike for its unique format which empowers guests to build their own custom pizzas, choosing from PizzaRev’s vast selection of sauces, cheeses, and toppings for one affordable price. Recently nominated for “Best Pizza in Los Angeles” by Citysearch, PizzaRev has earned one of the highest Yelp ratings of any pizza restaurant in Los Angeles, and is poised to continue its growth in the community and outward with its new partner.
“The PizzaRev team is thrilled to have Buffalo Wild Wings invest in our business. Their strong track record and stellar reputation within the industry make them an ideal partner as we strive to reach new customers excited by our concept,” says PizzaRev co-CEO Rodney Eckerman. “PizzaRev’s unique and interactive approach is revolutionizing the pizza industry, and it’s exciting to have a similarly innovative brand like Buffalo Wild Wings take notice.”
“Over the past year, Buffalo Wild Wings has been investigating emerging restaurant concepts with high growth potential as we continue to build our dynamic company,” says Kathy Benning, Buffalo Wild Wings executive vice president of global marketing, brand, and business development. “Along with chicken wings, pizza is one of America’s most popular foods and we believe that PizzaRev has great potential for continued growth and success.”
“PizzaRev is a truly interactive dining experience. Starting with our made-from-scratch dough, everything you could want on your pizza is displayed right before your eyes and crafted to your personal preference. Once your pizza is just right, it goes in our revolutionary open-flame stone-hearth oven and emerges just three minutes later perfectly cooked,” explains Nicholas Eckerman, PizzaRev’s head of operations.
“We believe that our relationship can have immediate impact in accelerating our growth in southern California and beyond establishing a leadership position in the fast casual landscape,” says PizzaRev co-CEO Irv Zuckerman.
