Two Great Concepts. One Turnkey Franchise. SkinnyPizza and Acai Organic Bowls and Smoothies

New York, NY  (  SkinnyPizza®, the New York City-based chain that offers a healthier take on traditional New York-style pizza, and nutrient-rich Acai Gourmet Bowls and Smoothies are now available as a dual concept franchise, according to SkinnyPizza®  Founder and CEO, Joseph Vetrano.

Describing his franchise mash-up as “America’s favorite food meets today’s hottest super food”, Vetrano, a veteran restaurateur, can now offer franchisees two popular concepts with one low cost of entry. He adds. “SkinnyPizza® and Acai is the only company incorporating sweet and savory in a single brand for round the clock sales.”

Proprietary Recipes Define the SkinnyPizza® and Acai Brands

SkinnyPizza® was founded in 2009 when Vetrano saw the health benefits of cutting carbohydrates and calories in classic food favorites. Vetrano calls his customizable SkinnyPizza® pies, “built without guilt.” SkinnyPizza® crust is made with no preservatives, additives or potassium bromates used in traditional crust recipes. All-natural plant-based crusts are made with real cauliflower and clean-label ingredients.  SkinnyPizza® sauce is made from 100% USDA certified organic tomatoes. All meats are non-GMO and raised without hormones.

Acai Bowls and Smoothies was added to the franchise offering in 2020 to meet consumer demand with a fresh fruit and nutrient-rich menu for healthier on-the-go dining. Acai Organic Bowls and Smoothies use only the freshest, all natural ingredients and offer the perfect trifecta for franchisees: the growing trend toward one bowl meals, super food ingredients, and fresh fruit smoothies in a socially responsible business model. Menu items have zero added-sugar and use only ethically sourced, organic fruits and superfood toppings. 

Partnering with a Franchise Expert

 SkinnyPizza® and Acai has teamed with franchise industry expert, Gary Occhiogrosso, founder of Franchise Growth Solutions, LLC, to expand the turnkey SkinnyPizza® and Acai Gourmet Bowls and Smoothies fast casual QSR (quick service restaurant) business model to ten units by 2024.  SkinnyPizza® and Acai franchises are currently available in NY, CT, PA, NJ and along the eastern seaboard.

According to Occhiogrosso, “This dual franchise concept comes from owners with a proven history of operating successful restaurants. SkinnyPizza® and Acai Gourmet Bowls and Smoothies use a smaller footprint than traditional QSRs which means lower build out and real estate costs, as well as more flexibility in restaurant configuration.”
