THE PIZZA PRESS OPENS FIRST LOCATION IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY IN THE SHOPPES AT CARLSBAD

Rapidly Growing Franchise Plans 20 More Locations in 2017

Carlsbad, California, January 31, 2017 – North County pizza fans have reason to celebrate as Southern California’s fastest growing build-your-own pizzeria, The Pizza Press, has opened in The Shoppes at Carlsbad. The Pizza Press, known for its high quality ingredients, wide array of local craft beer, and 1920s newspaper theme, has a nearly 2,400 square foot location with a patio.

In keeping with the newspaper theme, customers at The Pizza Press are invited to “publish” their own pizza by choosing from an extensive selection of fresh, high quality toppings, cheese and sauces. In addition to creating a custom pizza which is “hot off the press” in under four minutes, customers can choose from signature pizzas including The Times (extra virgin olive oil, mozzarella, chicken, grape tomato, red onion, smoked gouda, and finished with fresh cilantro and Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce), The Tribune (red sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, red onion, mushroom, roasted red bell peppers, sweet Italian link sausage, Kalamata olives and ricotta), The Chronicle (extra virgin olive oil, mozzarella, imported artichoke hearts, grape tomato, red onion, crimini mushroom, chevre, roasted red bell peppers, and finished with fresh basil and basil pesto) and others.

Diners can also enjoy a selection of custom or grab-and-go salads and tempting desserts such as custom ice cream sandwiches, ice cream floats and other seasonal treats.

Custom pizzas may grab the headlines at The Pizza Press, but the carefully curated assortment of local craft beer on tap is also newsworthy. At the Carlsbad location, the rotating selection includes Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Karl Strauss Aurora Hoppyalis IPA, and Rough Draft Amber Ale. The restaurant also serves Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee and Virgil’s cream soda and root beer.

“We are excited to bring the first The Pizza Press to San Diego County with the first location in Carlsbad,” said franchise owners Nikki and Fred Mayne. “We know this is a great fit for the area and look forward to becoming an integral part of the community, from supporting youth sports and charities, to simply getting to know the families and locals who regularly come to enjoy our great pizza, craft beer and fun atmosphere.”

The Carlsbad couple, who have many years of experience in the corporate world, noted that their goal is to open seven locations in San Diego County and are looking for their second location now.

The Pizza Press is open from 11am to 12 midnight daily. The restaurant is located in The Shoppes at Carlsbad, at 2501 El Camino Real #210, in Carlsbad. For more information or to place an order, call (760) 729-1904 or visit www.ThePizzaPress.com.
