Australian Franchise News – 05-12-11
Today marks a special occasion for Crust Gourmet Pizza, with the leading gourmet pizza franchise celebrating the opening of its first store in New Zealand.
The latest international offering is a great achievement for the franchise that has come a long way since its humble beginnings of a single store in Annandale, Sydney, 10 years ago. This year has also seen Crust expand into South Australia for the first time and reach an impressive 100 store milestone.
The leading pizza outlet is already renowned across Australia for serving high quality, healthier pizzas made to order with the freshest ingredients. It was the first pizza franchise to offer a range of Healthier Choice pizzas and independently tested nutritional details on its top selling pizzas to customers both online and in store.
Crust’s co-founder and Managing Director, Costa Anastasiadis, is extremely passionate about bringing the unique pizza concept to an international market: “New Zealand is a thriving market and as soon as we visited the area we knew it was a strong fit for our business. We can’t wait for New Zealanders to fall in love with our pizza.
“We’re well known for offering restaurant quality pizzas combined with the convenience of a takeaway service and it’s great we are continuing to expand. People have increasingly busier lifestyles and are demanding the convenience of a takeaway product but don’t want to compromise on quality.”
