PizzaRev will bring its artisanal, Roman-style pizzas to more homes, schools, business meetings and special events through the company’s new catering program. The build-your-own, fast-casual pizza franchise has appointed Catering Sales Manager, Bibiana Deaver, to lead the effort on behalf of PizzaRev’s 10 Los Angeles-area corporate stores and to develop a blueprint for its franchise partners’ catering programs.
Deaver is a veteran in the food and beverage industry, previously working with the House of Blues, Wolfgang Puck Catering, Lucky Strike Hollywood and most recently Pinkberry. Her experience includes leading catering efforts for major events such as the Interfaith Conference with Rosa Parks and the Academy Awards Governors Ball.
“Our catering program offers a tremendous opportunity to maximize each restaurant’s throughput and make our pizzas and salads more accessible for large groups to enjoy together,” said Nicholas Eckerman, COO and co-founder of PizzaRev. “We understand the importance of preserving the quality in-store experience, product and service our customers are used to, and that’s why we hired a dedicated professional to lead our catering program. Bibiana is a great addition to our team.”
PizzaRev’s catering menu features three different pizzas and salad packages, each one designed to serve either a medium (8-12 people) or large (13-18 people) group. Gluten-free crust and vegan cheese options are available to accommodate varying dietary needs, and desserts and drinks are sold a la carte.
“I’ve worked with a wide variety of food and beverage brands, and PizzaRev is one that truly shines in the restaurant industry and especially the fast-casual pizza space,” said Deaver. “I’m excited to work with a team of passionate and dedicated individuals to help grow an important part of the business.”
PizzaRev’s growing number of franchise partners will also have the opportunity to launch the catering program in the communities they serve. The company expects to have 65 corporate and franchise locations open in 2015.
PizzaRev is a "build-your-own" fast-casual pizza concept that has reinvented the way America eats its favorite food. Guests are empowered to fully customize a personal-sized 11" pizza for under $8. Homemade dough options, flavorful sauces, delicious cheeses, and over 30+ fresh toppings, everything is on display at PizzaRev and assembled right before your eyes. The pizzas are then fired in a 900-degree, stone-hearth oven which produces a thin and crispy Roman-style pizza in just three minutes. Los Angeles-based PizzaRev was founded in 2012; the executive team possesses a combination of Fortune 500 operating experience and high-profile restaurant management.
PizzaRev is currently franchising and announced a strategic partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings in 2013. The company currently has 10 corporate restaurants and one franchise location in operation, with additional franchises under development in Minn., Utah, N.D., S.D., Mo., Texas, and Orange County and San Diego in Calif.
