A group of MBA students, an engineer, and a world-class chef have launched a crowdfunding project to open a unique drive-thru restaurant in Northern California’s Solano County named One Pizza℠. Kelly Swanson, fast food entrepreneur, and MBA graduate of the renowned Thunderbird School of Global Management, is revolutionizing the way families eat pizza by building a one-of-a-kind, affordable, fast food pizza restaurant with a drive-thru. Customers will be able to order pizzas to go through a drive-thru, in addition to walk-ins, without compromising the quality of fresh ingredients.
Swanson’s recipe for success is minimizing the traditional wait times of 20-40 minutes for pizza to a minute using specialized ovens, a revolutionary fast concept to old traditional methods, while still providing natural ingredients. “It’s all in the consistent service quality, all natural ingredients, and just-in-time drive-thru service. Hungry consumers want their food healthy and they don’t have 20 to 40 minutes to wait for pizza delivery. Our goal is to get them their order in under a minute, via the drive-thru, or get them their food inside for dining or take-out,” says Swanson.
The pizza industry needs healthy fast choices and One Pizza is a new way to provide a quick, fresh choice of an old favorite. One Pizza’s speed will provide a balanced meal at an incredible price, along with a variety of pizzas including the signature $1 four-cheese 6” pizza. One Pizza also serves spaghetti, gelato, and will offer a kids’ meal, family combos, and salads.
“At One Pizza, we want to do things differently. It’s not hard to make people smile, and enjoy themselves. You just have to care about the customer and the food they eat. We plan to use the freshest locally grown ingredients; bake the crust and breads in each store daily, and choose the finest vendor products we can provide,” boasted Swanson.
All the funds from the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign will be used to open the first restaurant as well as lay the foundation for even more locations. By pledging to the campaign, contributors will receive a number of perks ranging from $1 for two pizzas, one year free pizza cards, and a lifetime of pizza offerings.
When One Pizza opens they will also provide 1 free 6” pizza a week to all card-carrying veterans, they plan to offer 50% off everything to all law enforcement and fire departments in uniform.
