NakedPizza recently inked several new multi-unit area development agreements, bringing the total units under contract to 96. Tim Holland in upstate New York, Shannon O'Quinn and John Caparella in Florida, and Ray Hambuchin and Winfred Thompson in Conroy and Little Rock, Ark., are the newest members of Team Naked.
The New Orleans-based carry-out and delivery pizza concept has also awarded contracts in Colorado, Florida and Kentucky. Store plans are currently being drawn for two leases recently signed in Miami's South Beach and downtown with an opening scheduled for summer.
Additionally, NakedPizza is engaged in more than two dozen letters of intent for multiunit awards and is actively seeking qualified partners who embrace the company's mission of making a popular and unhealthy fast food healthy.
NakedPizza's business model is informed by a number of business and health trends seeding its success including a Price-Waterhouse report on the explosive growth of functional foods.
