Dec. 5, 2014, Los Angeles – U.S. pizza chain PizzaRev is the first fast-casual restaurant to launch a comprehensive nutrition portal through database host Nutritionix, said a news release.
Nutritionix is an open database of nutritional
information, established in 2012, that includes allergen information and a nutrition calculator. While many restaurants are listed on the website, not all have the nutrition calculator feature activated.
“Our nutrition platform is designed to quickly provide guests the
information they need to make the best food choices for their unique
needs, something that has been lacking in the fast-casual pizza space
until now,” said Nicholas Eckerman, co-founder and chief operating officer of PizzaRev, in the release.
“Guests can now conveniently see how to build a PizzaRev pizza with less
than 500 calories, filter out ingredients for preference or allergy,
and much more. Nutritionix has built a world-class nutrition platform
and we’re proud to be the first build-your-own pizza concept to deliver
it to our guests.”
The nutrition portal is accessible through PizzaRev’s online menu
and is mobile optimized. Customers may configure the
nutritional makeup of their custom, personal pizzas on their smartphones
while perusing the menu at PizzaRev’s 19 open restaurants.
“Restaurant chains come to Nutritionix when they want to go above and
beyond in providing transparency to their customers,” said Danielle
Colley, MS, RD, and director of nutrition for Nutritionix.
