At Flippin’ Pizza we believe in the American Dream. It started with our owner, Herminio Llevat, whose family escaped communist Cuba and arrived in the U.S. with nothing but two suitcases when he was only 3 years old…two suitcases and the opportunity to start over and live the American Dream. Raised by a single mother, Herminio overcame the odds and through years of hard work and dedication, became a graduate of both Harvard College and Harvard Business School.
He then became a successful entrepreneur, owning more than 75 restaurants of various franchise concepts and is now the owner of Flippin’ Pizza. Given Herminio’s story, we know that to achieve the American Dream, sometimes all anybody needs is an opportunity--Flippin’ Pizza provides that opportunity.
Pizza seems to be the catalyst for opportunity since it was Italian immigrants, looking for a new beginning, who first brought it to the U.S. Once again, as a company, we wish to use making great pizza as a stimulus for achieving dreams. Like the Italian immigrants, we don’t skip any steps…our dough is made fresh daily at each store and we use traditional brick ovens instead of conveyor belt ovens. We strive to make the perfect pie every time, for families and friends to share with joy. After all, as one of America’s favorite food choices, we believe Americans deserve a better pizza.
Flippin’ Pizza has generated a cult following by serving authentic hand-tossed New York pies and slices since 2007, earning “best pizza” awards from coast-to-coast. We operate locations throughout California, Georgia, Maryland, Texas, Virginia, Washington DC and Dubai. Flippin’ Pizza is on track to double the number of restaurants by the end of 2018.
Flippin’ Pizza was developed by franchisees for franchisees as a blended model that allows you to benefit from multiple revenue streams and take advantage of lunch, afternoon snack and dinner dayparts. We believe the key is to keep it simple!
PIZZA BY THE SLICE:
It’s quick, but it never feels like fast food.
For the foodie on the run or parents tired of eating cheese pizza, we offer Pizza by the Slice. Perfect for the weekday lunch crowd or an after school slice.
FAST CASUAL DINING:
Did we mention we serve beer and wine, too?
We serve our pies and slices in a fast casual, family friendly environment. From the seating layout that includes booths and moveable tables to accommodate parties, to the carefully selected music list that creates a fun environment. Everything about the dining experience is centered around our customers, and they notice.
Ya, we do that too.
Unlike other fast casual or Chipotle-style concepts, that only offer dine-in and take-out, Flippin’ Pizza offers an additional revenue and profit stream through online and mobile ordering and delivery.
