In any business, separation is key. At 1000 Degrees, we believe that we are far and away the clear choice when considering entering the pizza franchise market. Better food, low cost to construct, efficient dynamic marketing, a big picture mentality realizing that serving the best pizza in the city is a keystone part of our mission. Below are just a few reasons 1000 Degrees is the hottest franchise concept in pizza!
A) Dough: Our authentic Neapolitan dough recipe dating back over 100 years from the Campania region of Italy (Naples) . Our authentic Neapolitan style thin crust (2 minute cook time) & new Roman style thick crust (3 minute cook time) dough is made fresh daily using “tipo 00 style” flour, and is mixed using an authentic Italian made “fork-style” mixer. We do not use the “dough hook” style traditional mixer used in most corner pizzeria franchises across the country. Our “fork-style” mixer is pivotal to the end product. A thin crispy, airy, light-on-the-belly crust, that is thin and extremely tasty. Our “Roman style thick crust” is just as tasty but a with a thicker, heartier crust, similar to a Sicilian Pizza crust without the baking in a sheet of oil required. Our dough is made fresh daily in each of our restaurants, and hand tossed giving us the best tasting authentic Neapolitan pizza anywhere.
B) Sauces: 1000 Degrees Pizzeria Franchise prides itself on serving the best of the best, and our sauce follows suit. Our delicious San-Marzano and Cherry tomato based sauces will be the best your customers have ever tasted. We also offer a wide range of other delicious sauces, including Spicy Sriracha Marinara, Blue-cheese buffalo, pesto, and smokey bourbon barbecue to name a few.
C) Hand Made Brick Oven: Part of operating in a Quick Serve, or Fast-Casual environment is having a process that works. We use a hand-made brick oven, that cooks our pizzas to perfection in just about 2 minutes (for Neapolitan thin crust or 3 minutes for Roman style thick crust). Unlike “west-coast” pizza concepts, we know pizza and our concept was developed in the pizza capital of the United States. We do not use a dough press to turn our pizza into a fajita with a quick sear to compensate for a substandard cooking process. Our hand tossed pizzas cook for just about 120-180 seconds and are back to the customer just minutes after placing their order. We don’t just serve “fast pizza” we serve the BEST PIZZA IN THE CITY, it just happens to cook fast!
