With the addition of these two new locations, Pizza Fusion will grow its international chain to 22 restaurants system wide. Pizza Fusion Naples will open at 2146 Tamiami Trail North in "The Gateway of Naples" shopping center, strategically located near the popular organic market, Food & Thought. Corporate is actively assessing locations in the Boca Raton area for a new flagship corporate restaurant and training facility. On August 29, 2012, the Company announced it had signed a Definitive Agreement to acquire privately held Pizza Fusion Holdings, with closing expected in early 2013.

"The level of expertise embracing the Pizza Fusion franchise model reinforces our optimistic outlook for national expansion in 2013," Vaughan Lazar, CEO and co-founder of Pizza Fusion, said. "Our development strategy is focused on ensuring the operational expertise, business savvy, and team building experience of every Pizza Fusion franchisee. Each new addition to Pizza Fusion's already seasoned franchisee network further expands the talent and resources of our global support system. This lends to the further validation and success of Pizza Fusion's superior product offering, unmatched customer experience, unique brand positioning and compelling business proposition."

Pizza Fusion Naples is the second location for veteran Pizza Fusion franchisee, Brown Thompson. After giving pizza fans a better reason to eat organic with the opening of Pizza Fusion Fort Myers in 2010, Thompson set his sights on the neighboring beach community. He will open the doors of Pizza Fusion Naples on Earth Day, April 22, 2013.

"People have been begging us to open in the Naples area since we opened our first location in Fort Myers," Thompson explained. "It's there, people are there, the customers are there, and the demand is there. We have an excellent product and the possibilities are endless."

Pizza Fusion's new corporately owned restaurant will be located in Palm Beach County. Its new modern energy efficient store design will feature a more welcoming motif, wood burning ovens, locally crafted micro-brews, friendly causal service, while integrating technology to engage customer's social participation at the store level and maintaining Pizza Fusions integrity to building a sustainable restaurant environment. This marquee show place will also serve as a training facility for the Florida region franchisees and will be used for research and development as Pizza Fusion continues to lead the industry with new and inventive organic, vegan, vegetarian and gluten free menu items.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
