RIZE ARTISAN PIZZA + SALADS COMING TO SANDY SPRINGS ON MARCH 6
Second Location of Chef-Driven Concept Brings Real Food and Robust Flavors to Roswell Road
ATLANTA (March 3, 2017) – The second Atlanta-area location of Rize Artisan Pizza + Salads opens Monday, March 6 at 6050 Roswell Road, at the corner of Hammond Drive in Sandy Springs. Rize is an elevated fast casual restaurant offering a daily lunch and dinner menu of amazing artisan pizza along with chef-driven fare that includes handcrafted salads, small plates and pasta with bold flavors along with a selection of craft beers, wine and authentic sangría.
“We are thrilled to share our passion for pizza and people with the Sandy Springs community,” says Rize’s founder and CEO John Smith of the restaurant’s expansion. “This passion is why we say we offer “Pizza with a Soul.” It embodies the artisan spirit in which we prepare our food, the way we care for our team and the way every guest is treated like friends and family. We feel every moment is an opportunity to create a truly memorable dining experience for our guests.”
Rize’s menu is approachable, affordable and focused on full-flavor food prepared fresh from scratch every day with premium ingredients. If you want to hang a while for dinner, selections include an innovative assortment of artisan pizza unlike any other in the Atlanta area, salads and small plates, flatbreads, pasta favorites, premium gelato and sorbet. There are no freezers, fryers or microwaves in the Rize kitchen, and each dish is beautifully plated to let the freshness of responsibly sourced ingredients shine through. For the nearby business crowd looking to dine and dash, Rize’s lunch menu, served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., offers real food fast with lunch-sized versions of artisan pizzas, amazing hot sandwiches, soups and “pick two” combo meals featuring the choice of one lunch pizza, flatbread or sandwich and either a soup or lunch salad all for $10.
Children 10 and under can enjoy a menu just for them that features a kid-sized cheese or pepperoni pizza, pasta and a hummus and veggies combo. Each meal includes a kids’ beverage and scoop of Rize’s premium gelato or sorbet.
Although the restaurant’s focused menu options and service approach allows for quick food delivery and convenient bill pay through its mobile app, it is up to the guests how quickly or leisurely they would like to dine. “We want guests to think of our concept for a great meal, amazing value and true hospitality perfect for everything from lunch with co-workers, weekend lunch with the kids to date night, family night and girls’ night out,” says Smith.
Complementing the restaurant’s bold fare is a beverage selection featuring wine by the glass, craft beer and Rize’s Marbella Red and Andalucia White sangrías, which are named after those regions in Spain and infused with herbs, spices and fresh fruit flavors. Non-alcoholic options include fresh brewed premium iced tea and fresh lemonade, Caleb’s Kola and Stubborn craft sodas.
“Pizza is the best communal food, and sangría is the ultimate communal drink you can find,” adds Smith. “The most important moments in our lives are surrounded by food, and we look forward to sharing those moments with the Sandy Springs community.”
