Local Entrepreneur To Bring Three zpizza Restaurants To Manhattan
 

Newport Beach, CA, June 26, 2007­ zpizza, the Southern California based gourmet pizza chain, recently signed a multi-unit franchise agreement with NYZ Pizza LLC to bring three zpizza restaurants to Manhattan. NYZ Pizza LLC is currently looking at the Chelsea area for their first location and is expected to open by the end of 2007.
 
“zpizza fits into the Manhattan area perfectly because it attracts the young, health conscious, upwardly mobile crowd,” says a representative from NYZ Pizza. “Locals in the city live healthy lifestyles and enjoy great food. They have been missing out by not having a zpizza near them.”
 
Featured on Good Morning America as a healthy dining option, zpizza takes a unique approach to the crowded pizza segment by appealing to traditional pizza lovers, health conscious consumers and gourmet palates alike. zpizza’s menu offers 17 tasty and adventurous pizzas as well as sandwiches, salads, calzones and the opportunity to create your own pizza with a selection of premium ingredients ­including whole wheat, organic sauces, low-fat cheeses, veggies and toppings.
 
“zpizza’s popularity is growing by leaps and bounds nationwide because of its innovative take on the gourmet pizza segment,” said Chris Bright, zpizza president. “We are really looking forward to moving into NYC­the defining market in pizza.”
 
The rapidly expanding pizza chain has received rave reviews since its inception in 1986, accruing customer choice awards in prominent publications such as the Los Angeles Times and the Phoenix New Times. Most recently voted “Best Pizza Restaurant” and “Best Pizza Delivery” in Washingtonian magazine, zpizza continues to impress its nationwide customer base and broaden its status as the premier gourmet pizza restaurant in the industry.
