1000 Degrees’ Custom Dining Experience Featured on CNBC

At 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, we hold our customers’ dining experience to a very high standard. That’s why we’re so proud to have recently been featured in CNBC’s article, “How millennials are building the next iconic pizza chain.”

woman-eating-pizza-620920541Pizza culture is evolving, according to CNBC, and the changes can be attributed in part to what millennials – meaning people born between 1980 and 2000 – want out of restaurants. “This younger generation not only look for healthier options but also consider the experience as significant as the food itself,” the article explains.

For 1000 Degrees founder and CEO Brian Petruzzi, providing the right experience is all about giving guests control and transparency. “Customers want a lot more input into what they’re getting,” he said. “They want to see that the ingredients are fresh, and they want to be able to customize and make stuff their own.” Petruzzi explains that the fresh-casual atmosphere at 1000 Degrees is kicking pizza culture up another notch by combining fast-casual with fresh ingredients. The result is a fine-casual setting our customers love.

In fact, a memorable experience combined with top-notch ingredients is what 1000 Degrees is all about. The proof is in the pizza, and it starts with amazing hand-tossed dough. Our authentic Neapolitan recipe dates back more than 100 years in Naples, Italy. Made with imported flour, the dough is mixed using an authentic fork-style mixer. The result is an unforgettably crispy and airy crust.

After that, what goes on our pizza crust is entirely up to our guests. Customers can choose from more than 50 fresh, high-quality toppings that range “… from the traditional tomatoes, mozzarella, pepperoni and garlic to thinly sliced rib eye, grilled chicken, pineapple, jalapeno, banana peppers, bleu cheese, a smoky bourbon barbeque sauce and more.” Our artisan-made cheeses and imported meats are a throwback to the Italian authenticity we’re so proud of.

Since the initial 1000 Degrees launch in 2014, we already have 25 franchises running “… in New Jersey, Michigan, Arizona, Texas, North Dakota, Florida and Connecticut — along with two locations in Malaysia.” By the end of this year, customers can expect to see at least another 30 locations open in the United States. “As far as signed agreements, we have well over 100. In Florida alone, we have 45,” he told CNBC.

Our 1,000-degree Neapolitan oven may have our pizzas ready in two minutes, but we don’t want our customers to leave. “We’re fast to get you your food, but we bring the food to your seat so you can sit back and relax,” Petruzzi said. “We focus on the dine-in experience.” Our self-serve beer and wine is just another reason to hang around and enjoy.

As the pizza market continues to grow and evolve, we at 1000 Degrees will continue to bring big flavor and a memorable experience to our customers.

1000 Degrees Pizza Opens in Nassau Bay, TX

Another fast-casual pizza chain fires up Houston-area locations

By   – Senior web editor, Houston Business Journal

New Jersey-based 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza entered the Houston-area market in May and will fire up its second location next week.

The newest location, at 8035 Spencer Highway in Deer Park, is across the street from San Jacinto College. It will open on Aug. 25 at 11 a.m.

Nelson Hernandez is the operations manager, and Donald Eues is the general manager. Chris and Alice Chandler are the franchisees for both the Deer Park location and the Houston area’s first 1000 Degrees location, which opened at 18032 Saturn Lane in Nassau Bay in May.

The Nassau Bay and Deer Park locations are only the third and fourth 1000 Degrees to open in Texas. The chain also has Texas locations in Austin and Amarillo, and new locations are planned for Katy and Denton. The company was founded in 2014 and plans to have more than 80 units open by the end of the year and more than 170 by the end of 2017.

Several so-called Chipotle-style pizza chains have entered the Houston market in recent years. Bellevue, Washington-based Mod Pizza has opened nine Houston-area locations in less than two years and has leases for seven more. California-based Blaze Pizza recently announced another Houston-area location, and Malawi’s Pizza, which currently has three locations in Utah, announced in May it is planning its first Texas locations.

1000 Degrees touts an authentic Neapolitan take on the personalized, made-to-order trend among fast-casual pizza chains. Each pizza starts with fresh, hand-tossed dough in either a personal 10-inch or shareable 14-inch size, and diners can build their own creations or pick from more than 12 varieties of topping combinations. Pizzas are then cooked at 1,000 degrees in a revolving Neapolitan brick oven in just two minutes.

However, one aspect of Neapolitan pizza 1000 Degrees doesn’t include is the traditional slightly undercooked center. Instead, it “captures American appeal and old world Neapolitan flavor” to create a “thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan style pizza,” according to a press release.

    Guests can choose to top their pizzas with any of the more than 50 cheeses, sauces, meats, vegetables, and other toppings, for one flat price.

  • 1000 Degrees Inks 12-Unit Deal in South Florida

  • INDUSTRY NEWS JANUARY 5, 2016

    1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual restaurant serving authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza with an American spin, has signed a franchise agreement to bring 12 units to South Florida, the first of which is expected to open by March 2016.

    The South Florida agreement is part of 1000 Degrees’ rapid expansion throughout the state. The company has recently partnered with local franchisees in the Northern and Central regions of Florida, with restaurants expected to open in Lake City, Jacksonville, Gainesville, and Orlando within the next three years.

    Franchise partners Julianne Burtin and Nick Anagno of Inferno Group Holdings said they plan to open the 12 new South Florida 1000 Degrees locations within the next five years. Both entrepreneurs, having previously launched a swimwear company and grown a motorcycle brand and restaurant respectively, the couple decided to go into business together when they saw the rapid growth of the fast-casual pizza industry. Despite industry competition, Burtin and Anagno ultimately chose to pioneer their market and develop 19 counties of South Florida with 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza because it served the best tasting product.

    “Through our deal with 1000 Degrees, Nick and I found an opportunity to develop the customizable pizza concept throughout South Florida,” Burtin says. “We’re excited to bring the brand’s upbeat vibe, high-quality ingredients, and great-tasting food to our hometown and surrounding counties.”

    1000 Degrees currently has more than 10 domestic restaurants open in New Jersey, Michigan, and Connecticut and one location in Malaysia. The international franchise is growing at a rapid pace, estimating it will open more than 80 units by the end of 2016, and projecting an additional 170 units by 2017.

    “This multiunit franchise deal is only one example of the increased demand we’re seeing for 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza across the nation,” says CEO and founder Brian Petruzzi. “We’re thrilled to have Julianne and Nick on board to grow our brand and introduce our high-quality product throughout the South Florida region.”

    1000 Degrees serves personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza. Unlike traditional Neapolitan pizza, which has a slightly undercooked center and requires a fork and knife to eat, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza has fused this classic style with American flare. The result is a thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan-style pizza.

New restaurants not only bring jobs, but they also bring vendor and construction opportunities for local firms.

The chain offers 12 specialty pizzas, including favorites like the Barbecue Bourbon Chicken, which features sweet and smoky bourbon barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onion, pineapple, shredded Grande brand mozzarella and blue cheeses. Pizzas are fired at 1000 degrees in a Neapolitan brick oven and cook in about two minutes.

It’s all about options at 1000 Degrees, where patrons can get a 10-inch or 14-inch pizza with seven different meat options, 12 types of veggies and eight varieties of cheeses and sauces, all assembled in front of your eyes. Pizza crusts are a classic Neapolitan style, or a Roman style that is a thicker variety that’s rolled out into more of a flatbread.

1000 Degrees Pizza to open Phoenix, AZ

1000 Degrees Pizza debuts first Arizona location

At what point will the Valley have its fill of made-to-order, assembly-line pizza baked in a flash? Perhaps never, because when it’s done with quality ingredients, what’s not to like?

So welcome 1000 Degrees Pizza to the Scottsdale 101 shopping center, the first Arizona location for the Galloway, N.J., company. It joins the ranks of Fired Pie, Mod Pizza, Pizza Me, Pizza Rev and other fast-casual, build-your-own pizza joints in metro Phoenix.

The theme

Personalized, made-to-order Neapolitan-style pizza made with fresh, hand-tossed dough crafted from “00” flour into 10-inch ($7.95) and 14-inch ($14.95) sizes.

  • You can choose a combo, perhaps a Meatza with meatballs, hot or sweet Italian sausage, bacon, pepperoni and mozzarella. Or a Philly, with thin-sliced rib eye, caramelized onions, balsamic glaze, mozzarella and provolone.
  • You can build your own pizza, from more than 50 cheeses, sauces, meats, vegetables and other toppings.

How they’re made

Pizzas are then fired at 1000 degrees in a revolving-bottom brick oven, finishing in two minutes. Don’t expect authentic Neapolitan finesse — the traditional certified Italian pizza boasts a signature, slightly soft center, while the 1000 Degrees model is crispy throughout.

More locations on the way

Operated as a franchise by Randy and Ban Kassab of Capital Pizza Ventures, this is the just the first slice of the pie, since the group plans to develop three more Valley stores, with the next slated to open in Gilbert this spring.

Founded in 2014, 1000 Degrees is a fast-growing concept with nearly a dozen domestic restaurants and one international location in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A mega expansion is planned through 2017.

Details: Scottsdale 1017000 E. Mayo Blvd., Phoenix. 480-502-7735, 1000degreespizza.com. Hours: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sundays-Thursdays, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Piece of the pie: New restaurant highlights demand for pizza

With two rotations and two minutes in a large brick oven, customers at 1,000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza can expect to get a piece of the pie pretty quickly.

franchise owners

Owners of the new pizza place on South 42nd Street describe their product as a cross between Neapolitan and New York styles, which they hope will separate themselves from the rest of the local pizza market they joined this week.

“In every other respect, it’s pizza,” said Mark Connelly, an owner of the business. “I think it’s the best quality pizza we could find.”

The American consumer’s appetite for the cheesy, saucy pies is growing, and locals seem to be no exception. Even by conservative definitions of “pizza restaurant,” Grand Forks and East Grand Forks are home to roughly 15 different pizza brands, including corporate shops and independent restaurants.

Operators of those restaurants say they try to separate themselves from the competition with prices, unique recipes and styles, and markets they aim to serve. And there seems to be plenty of dough to go around.

U.S. pizza sales topped $38.5 billion in the year that ended September 2014, according to figures from CHD Expert and Technomic cited by PMQ Pizza Magazine. That’s up roughly 3 percent from the previous year.

There may be a simple reason for that demand.

“Pizza’s the best,” said Matt Winjum, a co-owner of Rhombus Guys in downtown Grand Forks.

1,000 Degrees, which is connected to the Baymont Inn and Suites and had its grand opening Thursday, is the latest pizza chain to move into Grand Forks. Based in New Jersey, the brand has more than 10 restaurants in operation but plans to expand. The Grand Forks location is its first restaurant in North Dakota.

Connelly said he tried a number of the existing pizza places in town as he helped developed the restaurant but still saw an opportunity to add something unique to the market.

When asked what sets 1,000 Degrees apart from the plethora of pizza options in the area, managing partner Nadia Grosskreutz said, “I think the atmosphere, just seeing the pizza getting cooked in front of you.”

The restaurant features a Subway-like topping bar to craft a unique pie.

The pizza place’s preparation and ingredients may be different, but the end result is almost always the same: a circular piece of dough covered in sauce, cheese and toppings.

“Everybody kind of does everything a little bit differently,” Winjum said. “For me, it’s pizza, but it’s so much more. The crust is just kind of like the canvas.”

While Rhombus Guys gets most of its business from dine-in customers, other places don’t offer that option. One of them is Deek’s Pizza on North Washington Street, which only delivers and provides take-out.

Deek’s owner Tyler Kuenzel said they focus on the college student market.

“Our main customer is the college community,” he said. “Delivering until 3 (a.m.) helps, and then just trying to make sure you’re giving the best possible value to the customer is mainly how we try and do it.”

Asked which market Marco’s Pizza concentrates, area representative Joe Deck said they look for “swing sets and pools.”

“We’re really after families,” he said, adding their south end location is poised to take advantage of new home development.

But the opening of another pizza restaurant marks some fresh concerns for Deck.

“What’ll happen is the market will shake somebody out,” he said. “We welcome any new business to Grand Forks, but I hope there are enough dollars to go around for everybody.”

Others were less worried.

Spicy Pie opened near the Columbia Mall in December 2014. That brand’s marketing director, Mary Brown, said they consider “any restaurant competition,” whether it’s serving pizza, burgers, tacos or other menu items.

“In North Dakota, any larger town you go to there’s going to be a ton of restaurants and a ton of competition around for any restaurant coming into town,” she said.

But pizza may have an advantage in its near-universal appeal.

“If you find somebody who doesn’t like pizza, then they might be crazy,” Brown said. “Pizza’s always a good go-to for families, for friends, for eating comfort food by yourself.”

Recurring fees including a 6 percent monthly royalty and a national ad fund contribution of 2 percent, according to the brand’s website.
