t-and-Worst/Best-of-2009—Pizza-Fusion.htm
) for “Best Green Retailing
Practices in the U.S. Retail Industry”.  According to About.com, “the
criteria used to pick the “Best and Worst of the Retail Industry in 2009”
was an equitable blend of industry recognition, hard numbers, expert
analysis, and because-I-said-so opinion.”

“We’re honored to receive this recognition from About.com,” Vaughan Lazar,
president and co-founder of Pizza Fusion, states.  “We take pride in our
stewardship of the environment and being an example for other green
businesses to follow.  We hope other organizations take notice we continue
to franchise nationally and beyond.”

About.com cited Pizza Fusion’s LEED certified retail stores, usage of
reclaimed furniture, utensils made from potato starch, and hybrid delivery
vehicles, stating, “Pizza Fusion is a rising retail restaurant star proving
in every way that it is sincerely committed to its motto of “Saving the
Earth, One Pizza at a Time.” “

Pizza Fusion has 20 locations open in 11 states nationwide, since its
founding in 2006.  In late 2009, it opened its first international franchise
in Saudi Arabia.  Pizza Fusion is considering franchise and area developer
candidates for its national expansion.
