PizzaForno, North America’s first automated pizzeria that bakes artisan pizza in less than three minutes, 24 hours a day, is officially expanding into Georgia. The first of three new locations will open this Saturday, May 6, at 3861 Roswell Road in Buckhead, withtwo additional locations opening around metro Atlanta later this month.
The three entrepreneurs responsible for this expansion are business partners Tyler Young, Paul Nair, and Mick Patel. Young has always had a passion for the restaurant industry and started running restaurants when he was in college. Nair is the founder and owner of Savi Provisions, a neighborhood spot for organic foods, wine, spirits, and sandwiches. Patel is Director of Business Development and a franchise owner of Savi Provisions. The three were always interested in technology and innovation in the restaurant space and were immediately drawn to PizzaForno.
“One of the biggest issues I’ve seen with all my time in the restaurant industry is labor retention,” said Young, who serves as a master licensee. “With PizzaForno, we solve that problem. Not only are we offering a high-quality, fresh product, but we are able to offer it 24/7 without worrying about staffing.”
The trio is passionate about bringing this dining option to the area, and plans to install units in universities, hospitals, and anywhere else that people would benefit from convenient, 24/7 access to their product. While they plan to open five units throughout the year, they hope to bring a total of 50 to the area.
A Grand Opening event will take place at the 3861 Roswell Road location in Atlanta’s popular Buckhead neighborhood on Saturday, May 6. The opening event is from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature free pizza, family-friendly music, games, freebies and giveaways. Prizes will be given for games and an “Enter to Win” contest drawing will be held for two lucky winners to win free pizza for an entire year.
