Pizza Guys, a Sacramento-based pizza restaurant specializing in fresh, quality food, continues to expand its presence in San Jose by opening its fourth location in San Jose Pizza Guys. This new location is the brand’s 20th location in the greater Bay Area. The new location will be opened by Amrik Bola and will be the first of three Pizza Guys locations he plans to open across San Jose. The new restaurant is located at 4605 Cherry Avenue and is slated to open in late March.
This isn’t Bola’s first experience as a franchisee. Bola has 20 years of experience owning and operating various franchise brands and has extensive experience in the pizza franchise space. He is eager to join the Pizza Guys team and is excited to help the brand grow its presence in the San Jose market.
“After learning more about the Pizza Guys concept, I knew it was a brand that I wanted to grow in San Jose,” says Bola. “I raised my family in San Jose so it is a very special feeling to help Pizza Guys grow their presence in the market and share it with our family, friends and the wider community. I really want to open my doors and introduce more people to Pizza Guys. “
As a take-out and delivery concept, Pizza Guys already had the infrastructure at the beginning of the pandemic to offer customers a service when placing orders for their stay at home. The brand also already had the procedures and processes to continue to provide people with food through delivery and takeaway. To ensure the safety of employees and customers, Pizza Guys has introduced tamper-evident packaging, contactless delivery and cashless payment, and has also installed sneeze protection in stores.
“The support from companies throughout the process has been fantastic,” adds Bola. “Pizza Guys was there every step of the way and I’m proud to partner with them and help them grow their presence in the San Jose area. Their commitment to helping their franchisees and the communities they serve is closely tied to my values. “
During the pandemic, Pizza Guys’ loyal customers have held onto the brand, and an increasing demand for delivery and take-away has resulted in incredible growth and success. To keep pace with increased demand, Pizza Guys hired over 300 new employees system-wide, providing jobs for those whose jobs were impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Pizza Guys has always put the community first, including donating thousands of pizzas to health care workers since the pandemic began and providing free pizzas that staff can take home after each shift.
“Dedicated and knowledgeable franchisees like Amrik help Pizza Guys continue to grow and serve new communities,” said Shahpour Nejad, CEO and founder of Pizza Guys. “Our approach has proven incredibly resilient in Covid-19. It has enabled us to recruit new employees and support the communities we serve. We look forward to the positive impact Amrik will have on the San Jose community.”
