1000 Degrees Neapolitan grows stores and crust options
From new locations to kinds of crust options, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza is turning it up a notch on growth and innovation. The chain plans to open 20 more locations by year's end, representing an 85 percent increase in unit count, according to a news release.
"In less than three years, we've grown from one store in New Jersey to more than 20 restaurants across the United States. The brand continues to evolve and grow, adding more talented franchise partners to our team and making innovative changes to our menu, while always serving the highest-quality, most authentic Neapolitan pizzas on the market," 1000 Degrees Founder and CEO Brian Petruzzi, said in the release.
In Q1 2017, the chain opened in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as Coral Springs, Florida and Strongsville, Ohio. It will open a Knoxville, Tennessee unit by the end of Q2, with an additional 15 units in development in markets nationwide.
The growing chain is also introducing a new oval-shaped pizza and crust option called The Roman, that doubles the thickness of the chain's traditional crust.
