Founded on Friendship
Pizza Fusion was born in February of 2006 out of the (not so) genius minds of Michael Gordon and Vaughan Lazar. Weeks prior to Lazar getting married, the two college mates began brainstorming how they could do something different that would not only spark their creative juices, but start a business that would make a difference in people's lives. After a few meetings and several 'not so genius ideas' later, Pizza Fusion was born. They realized that there was a huge void in the restaurant sector that prevented people from eating organically while dining out. Sure, it was simple to go to the nearest Whole Foods or Wild Oats, but where could you go to eat this type of food on the run or, better yet, have it delivered to your door?
Even though Gordon and Lazar felt that by providing the public with organic pizzas, salads, sandwiches, wines and beer was an awesome idea... it still wasn't complete. What good would they be doing this fragile Earth if they had followed the same practice of allowing their food delivered in a broken down car? They took their concept into a whole new world... they decided that they would buy their own delivery cars, and not just any cars... hybrids! All of Pizza Fusion's delicious food is delivered in company-owned, hybrid delivery vessels that get excellent gas mileage and have low harmful carbon emissions.
All or Nothing
So fresh, delicious, organic food delivered in only hybrid delivery vessels sounds like all the bases were covered... not for Gordon and Lazar. They made it their mission to care about the quality of their food and their impact on the environment, but realized that one last piece was missing... the quality of their work environment. Michael and Vaughan wanted the culture and dynamic of the Fusion Family to be treated as carefully as the food and the environment. They opted to offer all employees working more than 20 hours a week health insurance. They realized that maintaining a healthy workplace not only made sense, it was the key to their business. Great employees serving delicious food would prove to be the makings of success.
All Things Happen for a Reason
The founders of Pizza Fusion were committed to the integrity of their entire concept. They agreed early on that if it doesn't feel right, then don't do it. They lived by the mantra that 'All Things Happen for a Reason'. That mantra was reinforced in August of 2006 when Randy Romano walked into the first Pizza Fusion store in Deerfield Beach to see what all the buzz was about. The second he walked into the store and tried the pizza, he wondered why this idea wasn't in every town across the globe. You see, Randy's background is in franchising awesome ideas like Pizza Fusion. He went home and pulled up this very website to see if it was a franchise and the second he saw that it was just the lil ole Deerfield store only, his entrepreneurial fire started burning. Ironically, what Romano didn't know was that his soon-to-be son-in-law was Vaughan's childhood friend. A call was made, a meeting was had... the rest is history! Now Romano, Gordon and Lazar are determined to bring their recipes of delicious, all-natural food to your door.
