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.
