Pizza Fusion - Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week

Pizza Fusion (Fort Lauderdale FL) is a pizza chain with with a wide variety of organic, vegan, gluten-free, and lactose-free menu items. Seventy-five percent of the menu is organic, they only use all-natural free-range chicken and organic beef and they serve organic drinks.

But their differences don't stop at the menu. Each month they host fun lessons on sustainability through "Organics 101" for kids. The company delivers pizzas in company-owned hybrid vehicles, uses compostable food containers, and offsets 100% of power consumption through renewable energy certificates. Each franchise restaurant is LEED certified. They also encourage customers to return their pizza boxes for recycling and their website offers tips for sustainable living alongside a carbon footprint calculator.

Founded by Michael Gordon and Vaughan Lazar in 2006, Pizza Fusion has over 20 franchises in 9 states. Pizza Fusion's tagline: "Saving the world, one pizza at a time."
