LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pizza Factory, a chain of pizza restaurants known for using fresh ingredients, providing a family-friendly atmosphere, supporting local communities, and backing a "No Bullying" campaign, is pleased to announce the opening of its newest location, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"We're very pleased to be in Las Vegas and see it as a prime locale for our brand, which we are continuing to expand," says Mary Jane Riva, chief executive officer of Pizza Factory, which has locations in California, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
The new restaurant, at 10420 S. Decatur Blvd., represents a dream come true for operators Junaid Sheikh and his wife, Nuzhat.
The Sheikhs were on vacation when they wandered into a Pizza Factory restaurant.
Everything was so delicious that, says Junaid , "We fell in love with it." Soon, they started fantasizing about running a pizza business of their own and contacted Pizza Factory.
"Las Vegas is an amazing city," he says. "But there's still a lot of untapped potential here." He decided to take his passion for quality food and service and use it to start a great restaurant.
The results have been amazing. "Our pizza is very fresh," he says. "All our ingredients are fresh instead of frozen. And we prepare everything in front of our customers."
Starting as a waiter in New York, Junaid rose to become a food manager at major hotels in Las Vegas.
"I've learned that customer satisfaction is the key to making your business thrive," he says. "You have to be willing to put in the time to keep everyone happy and to stay focused on your goals."
The couple and their workers are also helping support community activities.
For example, the Pizza Factory in Las Vegas has started a "No Bully" program that helps local schools fight bullying.
