Salt Lake City -- PizzaRev franchisee group Away We Dough, Inc. is opening Utah’s first PizzaRev – a build-your-own artisanal pizza concept with roots in Southern California.
The new West Valley restaurant is the first of five franchise locations planned to open in Utah in the next six months.
Away We Dough is part of William Tell, Inc. based in Salt Lake City, which owns and operates 18 Applebee’s and eight Famous Dave’s in Utah and Washington.
“The option to build your own pizza and have it ready in minutes is truly revolutionary,” said PizzaRev franchise partner, Jeff Meyer. “We’ve already received a warm welcome from the West Valley community and expect PizzaRev to flourish in the market; we have an aggressive expansion plan and will hire more than 200 full time and part time employees as we build out our five restaurants.”
PizzaRev’s interior design features exposed ceilings, concrete floors and natural tones. A custom-built, 900-degree stone hearth oven delivers Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes.
PizzaRev is currently franchising and announced a strategic partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings in 2013. The company currently has 10 corporate restaurants and two franchise location in operation, with additional franchises under development in Minnesota, Utah, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Texas, and Orange County and San Diego in California.
