Please don't use your hands at the salad bar Craig....

Easy now. I resemble that remark.  ;D

I could see it working with topping kits.  They tell u what they want and then you give them a box with pre weighed ingredients.

Craig ALSO was correct is saying that all these places seem to be on the west coast.  I've looked into the idea....and frankly, i don't know if it would fly here in New England.  Too many Italians, too many good pizza places. But, I admit, people seem to be open to the idea. 

I wonder...you'd never think that Chipotle would be successful in SoCal - the land of many a great, little tacqueria.  But Chipotle is always packed out here.
 
It may be a generation thing - the younger folk are being raised with the concept of getting it "their way" or having a voice (Facebook, Twitter, Chipotle, etc all support this concept).

Chipotle has a GREAT marketing scheme....local, etc.......young people LOVE the idea.  In connecticut, all chipotles are surpisingly slow, imo.  But their current concept seems to be even MORE suitable to their set up.....

I think only little kids would want to do this....a Birthday party type deal. If you had extra space/ a room I guess you could offer that for bbooking....along with your regular "Subway" see then eat line.

That is "specify" your pizza, not "build" your pizza.  Big difference.

Wow.  I've NEVER been able to specify what kind of pizza I wanted  ???
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

What do you do when you call Domino's, just tell them to send you over whatever they feel like?

"Build your own" seems to be a common catchphrase. Denny's has a Build Your Own Grand Slam and Build Your Own Skillets: http://www.dennys.com/#/menu. In the past, they have had other Build Your Own offerings.
