Australia’s second largest pizza maker, Eagle Boys Pizza, is spreading its wings in Sydney as part of its expansion strategy that will see six new stores open in the city during the next three months.
Eagle Boys Artarmon is the latest to join the pizza maker’s 32 existing Sydney stores.
Eagle Boys CEO Todd Clayton said the openings were testament to the fact that Sydney remained one of the pizza maker’s key growth markets.
“The Christmas / New Year period is traditionally one of the busiest pizza selling seasons of the year and during the next three months we’re going to open the equivalent of a new store in Sydney every fortnight,” he said.
“Eagle Boys Pizza first opened in Sydney at St Mary’s at the end of 2008 and in less than three years Eagle Boys has grown its Sydney network to more than 30 stores pointing to the growing popularity of our real taste and value-for-money pizzas among locals.
“And Sydney will continue to be an important market over the next two years.”
Mr Clayton said growth in online ordering and delivery had helped to spur demand in the region.
“Research continually reaffirms that convenience is a key reason why customers chose Eagle Boys and as lifestyles get busier, delivery continues to grow rapidly.
“Developments in online ordering and digital technology have also made it much easier for Eagle Boys customers to reach us,” he said.
Eagle Boys Pizza is Australia’s second largest pizza maker and is 100% Australian-owned. It operates more than 340 franchised stores throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, the ACT and the Northern Territory, employing more than 8,000 staff and making more than 18 million pizzas a year.
