Some new-concept buzz from the show

If discussions at the NRA show are any indication, concept development is revving up again.

A speaker in an education session on energy and water conservation, of all topics, mentioned that Pizza Fusion CEO Vaughan Lazar was in the brainstorming process for a second venture. Like Fusion, the spin-off would be grounded on green principles.

Pizza Fusion confirmed the report in New Age fashion by retweeting an audience member’s Twitter recount of the remark. It the company’s passing along the word, it must be true.

Meanwhile, a veteran chain-builder who asked not to be identified remarked off-hand that he’s considering a new concept, too. He wouldn’t provide details, but all of his previous ventures have been in the fast-casual segment.

Stay tuned for details.
