PizzaRev Brings Craft-Your-Own Pizza and Serve-Your-Own Beer to Memphis

Here at the Greater Memphis Chamber we love to celebrate business growth and development! There's nothing like standing beside you as you open the doors to your new business or reveal your new expansion. That's why we offer our members our expertise and assistance with hosting grand opening and expansion ceremonies. Thank you to our Ribbon Cuttings sponsor - Paragon Bank - for helping us support local businesses like you. Today, we are happy to be celebrating member PizzaRev and their new fast-casual pizza place at 6450 Poplar Avenue!

Why Memphis? Why this location?
In 2015, business partner, Andres Bolivar, and I signed an agreement with PizzaRev to open 16 locations from Tennessee to Georgia under the name TennRev (part of our company, Southern Restaurant Holdings LLC). After opening our first location in June 2016 in Jackson, Tennessee, we felt that the move into the Memphis market was a natural one. To put it simply, Memphis is booming! It is the place to be right now in Tennessee. Memphians are open to trying new things and are known for embracing change with open arms, so we found it to be a great fit for not one, not two, but three of our 16 planned locations.

Tell us about PizzaRev.
Founded in Los Angeles in 2012, PizzaRev is a craft-your-own, fast-casual pizza concept that empowers guests to fully customize a personal-sized, 11-inch pizza for one price. With more than 30 artisanal toppings available, guests pick everything down to the homemade dough for a delicious pizza ready in just three minutes.

In addition to the craft-your-own pizza aspect of our restaurant, our Memphis location features a self-serve beer system, which is a wall of 16 taps of craft beer and 2 taps of wine for guests to enjoy. Upon ordering, those over 21 years old who wish to consume alcohol are given a bracelet used to activate the taps of their choosing. Patrons simply scan the bracelet at the tap, select how many ounces they want, and enjoy. The bracelet tracks the ounces served and charges the customer’s credit or debit card accordingly.
What makes your business stand out?
Our business stands out because we let guests take total control of their order. We allow guests to customize their pizza or salad however they wish. With three types of crusts, five types of sauces and more than 30 topping options, the possibilities are endless. In addition, the self-serve beer system is the first of its kind in Memphis.

Our mobile app and in-store ordering kiosks are big differentiators as well. If you’d like for your pizza to be ready when you arrive, guests can opt to place their order via our mobile app. Or if you arrive at PizzaRev and the line is lengthy and you’re looking to get in and out fast, you can place your order just like you would in the main line through a kiosk that is set up by the front door. These orders get sent to a second line in the kitchen area, so you’re not being put in front of guests who are waiting in line.
Why did you join the Chamber?
PizzaRev joined the Chamber because we love getting entrenched in the communities in which we serve. Oftentimes, our Chamber membership helps up determine charitable organizations to partner with for fundraisers throughout the year. And, we’ve found it helps create a loyal customer base on the frontend, as Chamber ambassadors come out to our ribbon cutting, try the food and spread the word about PizzaRev to their friends and family, as well as on social media.

Who is your target market?
Our target market is not a small, specific one; we want everyone to come try out PizzaRev. Whether you’re 9 or 99 years old, everyone loves pizza!
