Brand’s Largest Multi-Unit Franchisee Expands Footprint in Southern California’s Inland Empire
Newport Beach, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Mountain Mike’s Pizza, a leading family-style pizza chain known for its legendary crispy, curly pepperoni, 20” Mountain-sized pizzas and dough made fresh daily for over 40 years, is proud to announce the opening of two brand new Riverside County locations. Located in Temecula and Jurupa Valley, both locations are owned by franchisee and Developer Agent, Robby Basati, who owns and operates 18 Mountain Mike’s locations throughout California, making him the brand’s largest multi-unit franchisee.
Basati has been successfully franchising with Mountain Mike’s Pizza for over 15 years and has been at the helm of expanding the brand’s footprint in Southern California’s Inland Empire. Within the past three years, Basati has opened nine restaurants throughout San Bernardino and Riverside counties and has two more Mountain Mike’s locations slated to open under his leadership by the end of 2021.
“Although we’re not able to open our dining rooms just yet, we are proud to begin serving even more Riverside County residents the Mountain Mike’s signature experience we’re known for, including our legendary 20” Mountain-sized pepperoni pizza featuring over 200 mini crispy, curly pepperonis,” said Basati. “Opening two new restaurants, in the same county, in the same week, was no small feat but we could not be prouder to have our doors now open in both Temecula and Jurupa Valley. The past year has brought many trials, but it has also given us the ability to continue building momentum towards what we feel will be incredibly successful year for the brand.”
Once dining rooms are permitted to reopen, the two new expansive restaurants will offer the welcoming environment Mountain Mike’s is known for to Riverside County locals. Serving up mouth-watering pizzas for everyone’s taste buds, the menus include fan-favorite signature combinations like The Everest and Pike’s Peak, including the fan-favorite pepperoni pizza covered from edge to edge with mini crispy, curly pepperonis. All signature pizzas are made with high-quality ingredients like 100% real whole milk mozzarella cheese and dough that’s made fresh in-house daily. Additionally, the new locations feature arcade games, expansive outdoor patios and big screen TVs throughout, making them the ideal dining destinations for families, sports teams, group fundraising events and celebrations. Whether it’s carry-out or contactless delivery, guests can always count on Mountain Mike’s to deliver on safety, freshness, quality and value. Guests may also place orders through any of Mountain Mike’s third-party delivery partners, DoorDash, Grubhub, Uber Eats and Postmates.
Basati continued, “Mountain Mike’s is known for giving guests a nostalgic feeling, whether it’s through our amazing pizzas, or the memorable dining experience we create. As a father of two, I’m so proud to be able to bring the fun, family-friendly atmosphere we’re famous for to families throughout Riverside county, and I’m looking forward to having both of these locations be integral parts of these neighborhoods for many years to come.”
