Pizza Fusion, a US-based chain, proclaims itself as being committed to “saving the earth one pizza at a time.” And now its slogan might ring more true. Now that it has a stronghold in the Middle East.
In late November Pizza Fusion opened its first international franchise in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (on Prince Abdullah Street at the Rawoda Star Center, for those of you that are hungry) and is looking to expand to other cities in that region. Other franchise locations are already planned for Jeddah and Riyadh City in the near future.
So what exactly makes Pizza Fusion so great? (Other than the fact that their pizzas look delicious – check out their Greek pizza above.) Besides the fact that the pizzas are 100% organic, the restaurants feature eco-friendly building elements such as Energy Star certified appliances, non-VOC paints, FSC certified wood cabinetry, smart lighting systems, low flow faucets, and more.
Georges Chaoul, Business Development Manager for Samir Food Co., Ltd. (the company that brought Pizza Fusion to Saudi Arabia), said that “we’re very pleased with the response we continue to receive from Jeddah residents. The restaurant has been packed with curious customers; their reviews speak praise to the quality and taste of Pizza Fusion’s organic menu.”
