The strategic partnership formed between PizzaRev and Buffalo Wild Wings was selected as the top investment 'Deal of the Year' by Franchise Times magazine.
According to a news release, PizzaRev founders Irv Zuckerman and Rodney Eckerman received the award at the recent Franchise Finance & Growth Conference in Las Vegas. When the partnership was formed last year, PizzaRev had three locations open in the Los Angeles market. Now, the company operates eight California restaurants with many additional franchise units under development across the country.
According to Franchise Times, "Dealmakers is an editorial project that highlights excellence by management teams, investors, lenders, and advisers in buying and selling franchise companies to drive sustainable growth."
"Buffalo Wild Wings is the perfect partner to help us build our fast casual pizza brand," said Irv Zuckerman. "Our executive teams share a passion and common vision for the growth of PizzaRev, and we have a team dynamic that is truly unique in the investment world."
