1000 Degrees Arrives in Silicon Valley

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, is coming to Cupertino’s Homestead Square Shopping Center in California. The new restaurant will host its grand opening on Thursday, April 28 and is located at 20674 Homestead Road.

To celebrate the new restaurant, the first 10 guests through the doors on Thursday, April 28 at 11 a.m. will win free pizza for a year. In addition, all guests who visit the grand opening between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. will receive a free 10-inch pizza of their choice.

1000 Degrees serves personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza. Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen, hand-tossed dough, created with authentic Neapolitan flour, and available in both a personal 10-inch and sharable 14-inch sizes. Guests then choose to create their own pizza or order one of the 1000 Degrees Favorites. The location will also serve wine and beer on tap.

The Cupertino 1000 Degrees is the first location in California and is owned by brother and sister duo, Juli and Kirk Satoh, as well as business partner Pankaj Patel. After working in the technology industry in Silicon Valley for most of their professional careers, Juli, Kirk, and Pankaj decided it was time to open their own business, and were attracted to 1000 Degrees due to the high quality of its ingredients.

“We look forward to opening our doors in Cupertino,” Kirk says. “We’re excited to introduce 1000 Degrees to California for the first time and share our love for pizza with the Silicon Valley area.”

Customizing a 1000 Degrees pizza is truly a unique experience, as guests can choose to top theirs with any of the more than 37 high quality cheeses, sauces, meats, vegetables, and other toppings all for one flat price. While choosing their toppings, customers are guided down an assembly line of pizza consultants to create a pizza that is totally unique to them.

“1000 Degrees is on fire and we’re certainly heating up Cupertino with the opening of our first location in California,” says 1000 Degrees CEO and founder Brian Petruzzi. “I’m confident that we serve the best hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza in the area and provide an unparalleled customer experience that will keep people coming back for more.”
