Yoga Bird

Pizza Fusion

About: "Pizza Fusion was born in February of 2006 out of the (not so) genius minds of Michael Gordon and Vaughan Lazar. All of Pizza Fusion's delicious food is delivered in company-owned, hybrid delivery vessels that get excellent gas mileage and have low harmful carbon emissions.

They made it their mission to care about the quality of their food and their impact on the environment, but realized that one last piece was missing... the quality of their work environment. Michael and Vaughan wanted the culture and dynamic of the Fusion Family to be treated as carefully as the food and the environment. They opted to offer all employees working more than 20 hours a week health insurance. They realized that maintaining a healthy workplace not only made sense, it was the key to their business. Great employees serving delicious food would prove to be the makings of success."
