PizzaRev announced today that it has signed a franchise agreement to open its first international location in Mexico.
The Westlake Village fast-casual pizzeria made the deal with Grupo Galeria, which owns and operates an extensive restaurant portfolio in Mexico, including 42 Carl’s Jr., five IHOPs and four Buffalo Wild Wings locations.
The franchise agreement calls for 20 PizzaRev restaurants to be developed in Mexico City and the states of Mexico, Nuevo León and Coahuila.
“(Grupo Galeria’s) commitment to quality food and service is evident in the success of their restaurant operations,” said Rodney Eckerman, co-founder and chief executive of PizzaRev. “We are confident that they are the best partners to bring the PizzaRev brand to Mexico.”
The pizzeria currently has 18 domestic corporately-owned locations and 10 franchise units. Grupo Galeria plans to open the first PizzaRev location by the end of this year, though the location and specifics were not disclosed.
