Just like life nothing ever stays the same for long in the restaurant industry. In fact the restaurant business is one that must always remain fluid, constantly evolving, and ever changing to keep up with the changing tastes of consumers. In this way restaurants can be seen as a mirror to the values we currently share as a society. Like when people began being more health conscious and aware of the effects the food we put in our bodies can have we saw the rise of healthier food options like: Taco Del Mar, Panera Bread, Chipotle, and even Subway.
More recently the popularity of build your own sub restaurants like Subway, Quiznos, Submarina, Togo’s, and more recently Which Wich? and Jersey Mike’s have led to restaurants serving other types of food to try and adopt a variation of this format. Chipotle for example has used the create your own format to great success with burritos and now even pizza places are beginning to capitalize on the popularity of customization.
With Pizza being an ideal food for customizing to the unique tastes of each and every customer it should come as no surprise that these “modern day” pizza joints are sweeping the nation and are quickly becoming one of the fastest growing restaurant types in the industry today.
While several different chains such as, Blaze Pizza, Pieology, and Project Pie compete for supremacy in the industry each one features custom made artisanal pizzas and an interactive assembly line format that allows customers to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own unique concoction.
The build your own aspect to these pizzas and the swiftness in which they are made pair well with other restaurants as well such as Frozen Yogurt chains. In fact in some cases Frozen Yogurt stores such as Chill Yogurt are even incorporating a build-your-own pizza aspect to their business with great success.
Any way you slice these delicious new build-your-own pizza restaurants are here to stay and they’ll soon be well on their way to blazing their own niche within the fast food industry.
