For hungry investors looking to grab a slice of the piping hot pizza segment, Pizza Factory unlocks exclusive access to record-breaking sales, and a lucrative average unit volume of $832K – $1.93M for the top third of all restaurants. Garnering attention from multiple experienced restaurant operators, the brand closed out 2021 with a double digit increase in same-store sales.
Continuing to build on last year’s momentum with 12 new operators in 11 new markets, Pizza Factory is strengthening its foothold in California thanks to a monumental development deal that will bring five locations to parts of San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
Longtime franchise investors and multi-brand operators with 17 Wingstop locations, Larry Yanez and Jesus Martinez, will be the ownership team developing these Pizza Factory locations which will feature the brand’s Express model, specializing in delivery and carryout. The first restaurant is on track to open in the Inland Empire later this year.
“It is so exciting to see seasoned multi-brand operators like Larry and Jesus show interest in diversifying with our growing concept,” said Pizza Factory CEO Mary Jane Riva. “The duo’s experience in the restaurant space and quick-service operations make them the perfect franchisees to bring our Express model to communities around Southern California. I’m looking forward to seeing them open our concept in communities they know so well while expanding our location count in our home state.”
This brand momentum has not gone unnoticed as Pizza Factory made a number of award lists. In fact, Pizza Factory ranked on Entrepreneur’s 43rd Franchise 500 list, Franchise Times Top 400 list, placed in the top 50% on Entrepreneur’s 2021 Top Franchises for Veterans list and was named one of the Top Food & Beverage franchises by Franchise Business Review.
Best known for its iconic hometown vibe with an innovative approach to operations, Pizza Factory has truly lived up to its stellar reputation as a West Coast icon. From flexible formats to advanced technology supporting franchisee’s bottom-line, interest in Pizza Factory has nearly doubled over the last year which has brought the brand’s name into two new states, Texas and Georgia, further cementing its standing as a leader in the thriving pizza space.
A community staple in 100-plus hometowns, Pizza Factory has stayed true to its roots with hardworking operators, family-friendly dining and high-quality products, offering fresh, never-frozen hand-tossed pizza, pasta, wings, sandwiches, salads, beer, wine and more. With multiple fast-casual restaurant designs, an Express model, and robust off-premise dining options, including delivery and mobile ordering through a proprietary app, Pizza Factory is built for the future of the restaurant industry.
The brand has perfected consumer convenience and continues to be the “hometown spot” to enjoy a great meal with your family and community.
