There are many variables that separate 1000 Degrees from other pizza franchises which set the 1000 Degrees Franchise opportunity atop the rest. Some of the most important factors that we believe make 1000 Degrees the best franchise opportunity in the pizza & fast casual food segments are:
A) The Country’s best freshly made Dough: Our authentic Neapolitan style dough recipe dating back over 100 years from the Campania region of Italy (Naples) . Our authentic Neapolitan style dough is made fresh daily using “tipo 00 style” flour, and is mixed using an authentic “fork-style” mixer. We do not use the “dough hook” style traditional mixer used in most corner pizzerias across the country. Our “fork-style” mixer is pivotal to the end product. A crispy yet airy, light-on-the-belly crust, that is thin and extremely tasty. Our Roman pizzas offer an authentic Roman style “thicker crust” option for those who enjoy a thicker, heartier crust. Our dough is made fresh daily in each of our restaurants, and hand tossed in front of the customers, giving us the best tasting authentic Neapolitan pizza anywhere and adding to the “best pizzeria in the city” experience.
B) Sauces: 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, honey garlic, pesto, alfredo, white sauce, & smokey bourbon barbecue to name a few.
C) Oven: Part of operating in a Quick Serve, or Fast-Casual environment is having a process that works. We use a hand-made, proprietary oven, that cooks our pizzas to perfection in just about 2 minutes. 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 seconds and are back to the customer just minutes after placing their order. Our Roman style thick crust pizzas will cook in just about 3 minutes for those who prefer a thicker, heartier crust. Our Fire Roasted wings are to die for, and take just about 4 minutes in our brick oven.
We have the best pizza in the business, and we aren’t kidding! Our customers say “you had us at first bite”! Once you have tasted our Neapolitan Pizza and witnessed our total experience you will agree. Our stores have a “cult-like” following of pizza connoisseurs who understand the 1000 Degrees Pizzeria difference after sampling our pizzas.
Competitive Advantages in Social Media Marketing: New Media Promotion: (social media) marketing platform is second to NONE. Just like our Pizza, our marketing strategy is leaps and bounds above our competition. There may be other fast casual chains out there but we can assure you that there is nothing out there like us.
