Naked Pizza Eyes Expansion with New Investment

According to a news report from Nation’s Restaurant News, “Naked Pizza, the single-unit, better-for-you pizza concept here, has followed up its May investment by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban with an investment by The Kraft Group LLC that it said would help launch its franchising program.”

“Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Kraft Group is a privately held company based in Foxborough, Mass., with investments in professional sports, including the New England Patriots professional football team, as well as in manufacturing and real-estate development. Randy Crochet founded the health-focused Naked Pizza with Jeff Leach three years ago. The pizza concept features a proprietary, 12-grain crust fortified with probiotics and prebiotics with no added sugar, trans fats or high-fructose corn syrup.”
