Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar Idalia

December 23, 2018


Business Overview
Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar is fully managed franchise ideally located in the The Precinct complex at 12-18 Village Drive, Idalia. The Precinct is Townsville’s first local urban village with a great range of quality retailers, from food, dining and entertainment through to professional products and services.

The business was first established in 2014 but sadly ceased to trade in November 2017 due to ill health of the the previous owner. The current Sydney based vendor reopened the business in May 2018 with the view of building the business back to a good operating position and then selling to a local operator.

Crust has both alfresco dining and home delivery to Idalia, Annandale, Aitkenvale, Douglas, Wulguru, Stuart, Hermit Park, Railway Estate, Mundingburra, Oonoonba, Mysterton, Murray, Cluden, Rosslea, Roseneath, and Garbutt.

Crust is so much more than just pizza! The exciting menu is full of mouth watering dishes including:

  • Gourmet pizzas
  • Pasta (goats cheese & lemon gnocchi, homestyle bolognese, prosciutto blanco)
  • Salad bowls (Thai wagyu beef, peking duck, Middle Eastern falafel, garden salad)
  • Sides (bourbon BBQ pork ribs, bruschetta, garlic bread, sour dough)
  • Desserts (waffles, ice cream, black forest crumble, cinnamon buns, mousse)

About the Franchise
Crust is known as the brand that makes pizza more interesting. It’s not just the finest ingredients used, but the way they’re combined to create unique combinations that are adventures in flavour. Crust pizzas are made the authentic way, relying on instinct and measuring by hand rather than following a strict formula. The franchise continues to lead the way with its delicious, innovative menu.

The ‘boutique’ style extends beyond the menu, all the way through to a customer’s experience in a Crust store. While there are commonalities in store design, the franchise endeavors to keep the boutique, local pizzeria feel to the store design and customer experience.

With more than 140 stores across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and the USA, Crust is a highly regarded brand of Retail Food Group (RFG), Australia’s largest multi-brand retail food franchise operator. RFG’s proven business models and support systems have been perfected over 25 years of operation, and the company has built an experienced and highly skilled support network to ensure the success of its franchise networks.
