Crust Gourmet Pizza

Since its inception in 2001, Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar has grown to over 160 stores in Australia and has expanded into Singapore and is soon opening in the United Kingdom.

Crust is the original innovator in the pizza space and brings true firsts to market from unique flavour combinations to product formats and service innovation. Crust prides itself of delivering the promise of ‘pizza reimagined’ with flavours and product offering that are ahead of global food trends. Crust makes pizza the authentic way, relying on instinct and measuring by hand rather than following a strict formula.

Crust appeals to a large segment of the market that wants the convenience of take-away or casual dine-in pizza but does not want to compromise on quality, taste or health. By tapping into this previously unmet consumer need, Crust has become a major player in the highly competitive QSR / pizza category.

Crust is both a take-away and dine-in, gourmet experience with most stores boasting a small seating area. Store size is generally 807ft2 - 1076ft2, with larger options for a full dine-in experience available.

We focus on creating the feel of the local gourmet pizzeria, and our fit out talks to the boutique, individual style associated with this concept. Although there are some similarities in the branding of all our stores, every store fit out is unique, with its own flavour and personality.
