Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (PRWEB) February 11, 2008
Pizza Fusion (http://www.pizzafusion.com), a young organic, eco-friendly restaurant franchise, recently reported the results of their first year of franchising with 63 locations to open in 10 states, including California, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Georgia and Florida. Pizza Fusion, whose motto is "Saving the Earth, One Pizza at a Time," is leading the restaurant industry in eco-friendly practices as the greenest restaurant in America and will build all their new stores LEED certified.

Pizza Fusion attributes their success to more and more entrepreneurs actively seeking out socially conscious businesses to align themselves with. "Society has woken up to the serious reality that the way we live on this planet must change in order to preserve and protect the environment for generations to come," Randy Romano, executive vice president of Pizza Fusion, explains. "This realization is what's driven today's entrepreneurs to shop for a more socially responsible means of making a living. In an industry saturated with unhealthy food options, Pizza Fusion addresses this need with a holistic world-centric approach to business by providing a product that's healthy for both the consumer and the planet."
Pizza Fusion serves a more than 75 percent organic menu of gourmet pizzas, sandwiches, wraps, salads, beers and wines. They also offer health conscious alternatives for people with selective diets and food allergies, such as gluten-free, vegan and lactose-free options. The chain mandates all franchisees build their locations strictly to LEED certification standards, introducing several states to their first ever LEED certified restaurants, including Florida, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
"We couldn't be happier with the interest we've received from both consumers and entrepreneurs alike," Vaughan Lazar, co-founder and CEO of Pizza Fusion, states. "It's encouraging to know that as a society, there are people making changes in their lives to promote a more environmentally sustainable tomorrow. To provide socially conscious entrepreneurs with a means of furthering their world-centric lifestyles is incredibly rewarding. The people we've had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside have made Pizza Fusion much more than just an organic pizza franchise. They've made us a player in the environmental movement by enabling us to extend our reach across the country. I can't wait to see what the next year brings."
Pizza Fusion's expansion is a result of multiple area development and single-unit franchise commitments. The cost to open a Pizza Fusion franchise ranges from $275,000 to $400,000. For a list of Pizza Fusion locations in active development, visit: http://www.pizzafusion.com/locations/.
