Azzip Pizza Named Top 100 National Fast Casual Brand

Azzip (AY-ZIP) Pizza was honored as a top 100 national fast-casual Mover and Shaker. The annual list honors the industry’s top restaurant brands as Azzip joined the 2020 list at #67 alongside peers Starbucks, Panera Bread, McAlister’s Deli, and Chipotle.

“This is such a cool honor for Azzip,” says founder and co-CEO Brad Niemeier. “The Top 100 list was used in my original pitch at Purdue in 2012 when there were very few pizza restaurants included, which helped emphasize my idea that there was a gap in the market in this segment! For Azzip to make this list 8 years later represents such a cool milestone in our history.”

Azzip was added to the list based on their sustained growth, focus on great workplace environments and unique approach to customer loyalty. Azzip’s three consecutive years of double-digit same-store sales growth, better than industry average employee retention, and high customer ratings were cited as proof of their success in a competitive restaurant industry. 

“This is a team success through and through,” emphasizes Niemeier. “We wouldn’t be here today without a whole bunch of people believing in what we are trying to do with Azzip. From my family in the business to every team member at Azzip believing in trying to make each visit to Azzip personal and unique.”
