SkinnyPizza signs deal to expand in Manhattan

New York -- SkinnyPizza has signed an exclusive deal with Mogull Realty for multi-unit expansion into Manhattan. 

"Skinny is poised to become the next Starbucks,” said Kim Mogull, founder and CEO of Mogull Realty. Just like Whole Foods, the restaurant caters to people who want delicious, healthy food options."

Joseph Vetrano, founder and president of SkinnyPizza, said the company plans on being very aggressive in the New York City market, with a goal of having 16 to 18 operating locations within 36 months.

“Mayor Bloomberg is going to love SkinnyPizza,” Vetrano said. “We have no salt shakers, no high fructose corn syrup in any of our products, and our cups are 16 oz. already (always have been) and they're made from plants. We plan on awarding franchise territories later this year both in the U.S. and International Markets.”
