REINVENTING THE FAST CASUAL FOOD INDUSTRY


Launched in New York City by legendary energy magnate, T. Boone Pickens, and former mayor, Mike Bloomberg, Neapolitan Express started by creating the first eco-friendly food truck, powered by Clean Energy Fuels. Neapolitan Express' business model encompasses the fast casual dining movement  in the culinary world and the sustainable, environmental, and social responsibility movement of today's consumer. Our mantras "Fast food should be good food" and "Doing well by doing good" guide the decisions we make, from choosing only the highest quality organic, 100% non-GMO ingredients to our commitment to cleaner, greener planet.

Our Culinary Director is renowned master pizzaiolo Giulio Adriani, who brings 30 years of experience to the table. Born and raised in Naples, Adriani is considered one of the best pizza makers alive and the world's leading expert in dough and flour innovation. Unlike traditional coal and wood burning ovens, we use the only open mouth electric oven, uniquely designed and hand build in Italy, to reach 900 degrees with zero emissions. Our highly-trained pizza makers and innovative approach & technology give our customers authentic Neapolitan pizza in 60 seconds.
