How to Start an Eco-Friendly Pizzeria

The desire for green businesses has been increasing greatly in recent years, and pizza is one of the most popular food choices all around. Therefore, it makes plenty of sense why an eco pizza business would be a promising green business venture. Pizzerias can be found in nearly every city or town, but traditional pizzerias aren’t often considered to be an eco-friendly business. However, there are now some eco pizza businesses popping up. Green pizza businesses offer the same products and services as traditional pizzerias, but operate with stricter sustainability principles, thus making the overall experience not only delicious, but better for the environment.

One green pizza business that has been successful since its start in 2006 is Pizza Fusion. The co-founders, Gordon and Vaughan Lazar, combined sustainability, social responsibility, and profitability to create the concept for their eco pizzeria, which has now grown into a franchise. They did their best to employ eco-friendly practices in all aspects of their green pizzeria, from the ingredients to the energy usage to the delivery, making this an overall green pizza business that meets the customers’ needs while maintaining sustainability and utilizing environmentally friendly practices.

What makes a eco pizza business green?

What separates an eco pizza business from a traditional one are the earth friendly practices the business employs, including using mostly organic ingredients, such as organic cheese, sauce, vegetables, and dough, but the sustainability practices go beyond the food.

In addition to making sure their ingredients are healthy, Pizza Fusion strives to operate an low impact, energy efficient business. Pizza Fusion even plans to use their hot water heater without electricity and to heat their northern stores solely using the oven. The franchise even makes all of their deliveries using hybrid vehicles to lessen their carbon footprint, a great move when considering their deliveries can often top over 60 in a single night.

Pizza Fusion is a great example of how you can start an eco pizza business that is eco-friendly, sustainable, and profitable. By employing environmentally friendly products as well as services, eco pizzerias prove to be much more sustainable overall than a typical pizza business.
