Miami, FL (August 25, 2010) –- The NakedPizza team has established a clear mission: to deliver a delicious, convenient and affordable pizza that fits into a healthy lifestyle. The franchisor is debuting in Miami this month – the first location of over 300 stores under development nationwide.
The company is out to prove that a fast food favorite can be both healthy and tasty while also creating a business model for investment, profit and scale. Starting at an everyday price of $4.99 for a 10” pie, the menu boasts unprocessed ingredients that are free of additives, trans fat or other “freaky” chemicals – supporting the company’s idea that fast food can be part of the solution to the national epidemic of obesity and chronic disease related to diet.
Its crust, unlike the typical processed, white flour dough pizzas, is made from a blend of grains, prebiotic agave fiber and probiotics (beneficial bacteria that promote digestive health and are also found in yogurt). The pizza has half the calories of other takeout or delivery pizzas, and is also available gluten-free.
“Our goal is a tasty, good-for-you pizza, an honest exchange, and the beginning of a real, meaningful change in the way people eat and live,” says NakedPizza co-founder Jeff Leach, “It’s not the idea of fast food that’s bad – people deserve value and convenience – it’s the lack of responsibility to help people live and feel better.”
