Brasiliana: A Slice of Brazilian Flavors in Atlanta
From Dream to Reality - A Journey of Passion and Determination
At Brasiliana, our story began in 2020 when Thiago and Nicollie left everything behind in Orlando and embarked on a daring adventure. With a dream in their hearts and little money in their pockets, they arrived in Atlanta, a city unknown to them, to bring the taste of authentic Brazilian pizza to the United States.
Starting from scratch, they tirelessly built everything themselves – from the kitchen and menu to the brand, social media presence, recipes, and processes. Their dedication knew no bounds.
With an homage to the rich Italo-Brazilian influence on their culture and cuisine, they chose the name Brasiliana.
Their dream? To deliver high-quality Brazilian pizza to every state in America. And it was in Georgia that they took their first steps toward that dream. Pioneering the concept of a Ghost Kitchen, they embraced an efficient system of delivery and pickup.
