Phoenix restaurateur Sam Fox sells Sauce to RA Sushi cofounder
PHOENIX — The popular local pizza franchise, Sauce Pizza and Wine, will be changing hands.
Fox Restaurant Concepts has sold the Phoenix-based pizza joint to a group headed by Scottsdale restaurateur Scott Kilpatrick.
Terms of this week’s deal were not announced. The majority of the nine Sauce eateries were included in the sale. The franchise opened in 2003.
Kilpatrick cofounded RA Sushi Bar, also in 2003. The chain eventually went national.
Sam Fox’s successful Valley restaurants include Culinary Dropout, the Arrogant Butcher, Zinburger Wine and Burger Bar and True Food Kitchen.
Fox will keep the Sauce location at Sky Harbor Airport.
