On Friday, Italian restaurant Vinces Pizza will finally be open.
The franchisee behind Vinces, the country’s first pizza chain, says it’s the most successful of its kind.
Since opening in November 2011, Vinces has expanded to eight locations across Europe and the United States.
The company’s first restaurant in Britain opened in October this year.
“Our goal is to be a truly global pizza chain,” Vinces CEO Sergio Rizzi told The Irish Post.
“The fact that we have a national network is really important for us.”
Vinces has been successful in the US because it has grown organically.
“Vinci’s is not just a product, it’s a culture,” Rizzis says.
“Vinco has been here since the 1960s and is the oldest pizzeria in Italy.
This is the place that the Italians have always dreamed of,” says Mario Tardelli, an American journalist based in Rome.”
It’s not a pizza chain in the traditional sense.
It’s an experience,” Tardella says.
“I think this is a real breakthrough in the history of pizza.”‘
The pizza is always coming’There is one other thing that sets Vinces apart from other Italian restaurants.
“We’ve always had a strong tradition of delivering the pizza to customers within five minutes,” Rizi says.
And he has been able to do so because he doesn’t rely on other delivery companies to deliver the pizzas.
“When a customer comes to our restaurant, we deliver the pizza and deliver the food to their home,” he says.
The first Vinces pizzas were baked by the Italian baker Giorgio della Castellanese in the late 1960s.
In recent years, the company has been working on its own recipe, and now, thanks to the recent success of its first two restaurants, there is a big appetite for the Vinces brand.
“In the past we didn’t have the ability to deliver pizzas at home, so we have to rely on deliveries from other companies,” Rizza says.
He says that Vinces customers now want to eat at the restaurants, rather than eating at the restaurant.
“The customers are more likely to eat when they’re in the restaurant and that makes sense,” Riza says.
At one of the Vinices locations, a customer was waiting for a delivery when the restaurant received a call from a company called Pizza Hut.
Pizza Hut’s representative told him that there was no delivery available.
When the customer looked for his address online, he found a Pizza Hut pizza box sitting on the floor.
“We’re really proud of the way we’ve been able [to] deliver pizzases in such a short period of time,” RIZI says.
Rizza and his team have been busy building a more sophisticated pizza and have recently expanded their delivery system to the UK.
“It’s the first time that we’ve delivered a pizza to a UK customer.
We’re not just delivering pizza to the customers, but we’re delivering pizzas to the whole of the UK,” he adds.
