Stevi B's Pizza Serves a 'Slice of Economic Boost' with Grand Opening in Port St. Lucie

Local Entrepreneurial Trio Opens Restaurant at 1407 NW St. Lucie W Boulevard;
Launch Operations with Community Fundraiser for Local Volunteer Group

Port St. Lucie, Florida (July 23, 2009) – With the grand opening of Stevi B's Pizza in Port St. Lucie, America's leading family pizza buffet is doing its part to improve the local economy. 

From job creation to investment dollars put directly into the Port St. Lucie community, Stevi B's Pizza provides local families with more than just the great value and convenience that defines the brand's offerings. 

"We recognize the important role we can play in the community," said Andy Patel, managing member of UMA Capital Investments, LLC, the franchise investment group that owns and operates Port St. Lucie's Stevi B's Pizza. "Stevi B's Pizza is an affordable meal, a great place to work and an environment everyone can enjoy noon and night."

Patel and his partners, Mike Palanza and Urmesh Dahya, opened the restaurant today in the Shoppes of St. Lucie West Shopping Center at 1407 NW St. Lucie W Boulevard. The opening marks the first Stevi B's Pizza in St. Lucie County.

"In and around the Port St. Lucie area, Stevi B's Pizza is building strong brand awareness and a loyal customer base," added Patel, who also operates 18 IHOP franchise locations in the region. "We look forward to serving the community for many years to come and growing the chain's presence along the state's eastern shore.

The new location spans 4,500 square feet, and its design reflects the chain's commitment to fast casual dining, blending quick service with a casual dining atmosphere complete with multiple flat screen televisions. For adults, each Stevi B's Pizza offers a laid back environment ideal for lunch and dinnertime discussions, and for children, the experience includes a retreat from the norm with a fun game zone.

"Port St. Lucie's residents have been eagerly awaiting the opening of their own local Stevi B's Pizza," said Matthew Loney, president of Stevi B's Pizza. "Stevi B's Pizza lets mom be the mealtime hero. When the decision is made to go to Stevi B's Pizza, the whole family is high-fiving mom."

The Port St. Lucie Stevi B's Pizza location is the first of 10 that UMA Capital Investments, LLC plans to open along Florida's eastern coast throughout the next three years.

With original menu items such as Loaded Baked Potato pizza and a warm décor featuring stonework and granite countertops in an open kitchen environment, Stevi B's Pizza breaks through the blasé of buffets with an exciting fast casual concept. Creative pizzas include the Cheeseburger Deluxe, Chicken Fajita, Macaroni and Cheese and more, and are complemented with a fresh and full salad bar and enticing dessert selections. The buffet is $5.99 for adults and $3.59 for children under the age of 10.
