Pizza1889 opens third shipping container eatery with 4th to follow

Eat in, takeaway and delivery pizza business, Pizza1889 has opened a third restaurant in Cambridge Leisure Park, joining the other two state-of-the-art shipping containers in London and Kent.

Pizza1889 offers authentic stone baked pizzas prepared and cooked in minutes by fully trained pizza chefs. The outlet operates from a specially designed 40ft 10 tonne shipping container holding a state-of-the-art six-foot stone oven which produces heat of around 450 degrees to ensure a truly superb, traditional pizza cooked within minutes.

Pizza1889 uses only the freshest ingredients sourced wherever possible from Italy. Its dough and rich tomato sauce are all handmade onsite. Cheese, such as Mozzarella di bufala & Fior di latte and meats, like Salami di Napoli & Neapolitan sausage are all sourced through Italian suppliers.

Pizza1889 founder Daniel Southwell said, 'Our aim with the business concept is to provide the highest quality handmade pizza using traditional techniques. We want to deliver this in an exciting and complementary way, as you will see with the bespoke container and our products, there really is nothing quite like Pizza1889'.

Whilst the show and theatre of the cooking is customer facing, Pizza1889 have also spent considerable time refining the unit, looking at the business model and developing the internal infrastructure.

The shipping container is easily assembled or moved within hours, Pizza1889 is a brilliant example of longer-term outdoor commercialisation. Using only small pockets of landlords unused space the idea is especially appealing at a time where larger retailers and restaurant chains choosing traditional in-line retail are reducing in size.

Trading for 4 years, the owners now feel the business is finally strong enough to support growth. Both the customer offering along with its improved business operating systems, Pizza1889 is ready, competent and confident enough to roll out new stores.

A fourth site will launch in Bristol before the end of the year and further opens are lined up for 2019. Pizza1889 is looking forward to delivering this amazing little concept and real, authentic, fresh pizza all over the country.
