PizzaForno Continues to Serve Up Multi-Unit Expansion Across North America

Automated Pizza Oven Concept Expands in Michigan, Ontario and British Columbia

The first U.S. multi-unit licensees have seen the demand for the artisanal pizza made fresh-to-order in less than three minutes with the first two units in Jackson, MI. The entrepreneurs Adam Page, who works in the medical device space and Tim Ekpo, an orthopedic surgeon have now signed on for two more outside of Jackson and one in Ann Arbor.  

Throughout Canada, the brand has opened seven additional locations: two in Ottawa, Orr Lake, Cookstown, Little Current and King Street East, which doubles as the brands global HQ.  The most recent launch inside Toronto’s Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada has proven to be a huge success.

“We knew being in the downtown Toronto east area would better reflect who we are as an innovated North American brand,” said Les Tomlin, Co-Founder and President of PizzaForno. “It matches our growth goals and vision of what each PizzaForno can be an attention-grabber that keeps people hooked with the freshest and utmost quality ingredients.”

The newly relocated headquarters is complete with its ’24/7 Pizza Patio,’ embedded into the side of their office building, ready to serve the busy Downtowner or city dweller.

Pairing a prime location with the heightened consumer demand for gourmet on-the-go meal options and nearly-touchless transactions, the brand is positioned well for future development With these unique offerings, PizzaForno’s sales continue to build on the 400% growth experienced last year.

“Our efficient business model makes it manageable for multi-unit licensees to break into new markets and serve a wider audience quicker with less overhead,” said William Moyer, Co-Founder and CEO of PizzaForno. “With a small footprint, easy-to-monitor technology, the business model is designed to essentially operate on its own with only having to make and fill the box with the fresh pizzas when out of stock or running low, which naturally happens when you can serve the 24/7 consumer demand.”

The gourmet pizzas are always available to customers with a click of a button from the conveniently located pizza ovens and are handmade daily with locally-sourced ingredients. The unique menu of pizzas is crafted fresh every day at the local PTO (pizza topping operation) then delivered and placed into PizzaForno units.

The pioneering brand is currently working on an app that will allow pizza lovers to order an artisanal pizza directly from their phones. The order is then sent to the nearest PizzaForno oven location for a nearly touchless experience. The app is currently in the testing phase but will be available to consumers this fall.
