@pizza is a pizza maker that aims to disrupt the £5.2 billion UK pizza and Italian restaurant market. The company asserts that its modern and fast counter operation can create hand-crafted pizzas in 90 seconds. @pizza is currently ranked the #1 restaurant in Birmingham and #1 pizza restaurant in Edinburgh for over two years with its existing fast-casual restaurants. The company plans to use ‘semi-permanent’ restaurant units situated in high traffic density suburban car parks to drive growth. @pizza believes that these restaurants can cook ten high-quality pizzas a minute, offer contactless takeaway and home delivery in the wake of COVID-19, and incorporate the UK’s first pizza drive-thru business model. The company will use the investment to broaden its customer base, giving consumers the bespoke pizza they want, as well as, how, where and when they want it without significant fixed property costs. It also aims to create franchise opportunities across UK cities.
