Pizza is one of the most popular fast food options in the U.S. Millions of Americans eat it at least once a week. An emerging brand to consider is the RedBrick Pizza franchise. The brand was established in 1999 and specializes in fire-roasted gourmet pizza, salads, and Italian specialties. Customers appreciate the brand's hand-crafted wheat dough that is made fresh daily with added red sauce and premium toppings and cooked in a fire-roast in 1000-degree ovens. RedBrick's promise is to make fire-roasted pizza fresh to order; only use fresh and natural ingredients; use 100% virgin olive oil; make premium wheat dough; only use fresh vegetables; and offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options for guests with specific dietary lifestyles. Franchisees benefit from a proven business model and feel-good product. Since its founding, the RedBrick Pizza franchise has expanded to locations in Florida, Nevada and Kentucky.
