Pizza Factory has inked a deal to further expand in Arizona. The location is set to open in the Mesa, Arizona area in the spring and will be run by franchisee Rich Cardon, according to a company press release.
“Even before I wanted to be a banker, I knew I wanted to be a restaurant owner. Out of all the restaurant concepts, Pizza Factory stood out because owners are able to create that familiar hometown brand in their communities,” Cardon said in the press release. “Due to my familiarity of the brand and passion for fresh, top-notch pizza, I knew I was making the right choice when I began my ownership journey. The brand’s culture is exceptional as well, and I admire how the executive team supports its franchisees every step of the way. I’m thrilled to invest in a concept that I believe in and want to be a part of, and look forward to sharing Pizza Factory with the Mesa community in the coming months.”
Cardon plans to open more Pizza Factory locations in the future.
“As someone who was also drawn to the close-knit atmosphere of Pizza Factory, I’m excited for the brand’s continued expansion with Cardon’s new restaurant in Mesa, thus strengthening our footprint across the Western region,” Mary Jane Riva, Pizza Factory CEO, said in the release. “Fans who become owners truly understand our mission of cultivating relationships with our loyal customers and providing the warm and friendly service that we’re known for. With Rich’s business and banking expertise at the helm, I’m confident that he will prosper at the Mesa location and am happy knowing that he’ll also be dedicating time to making connections with the community along the way.”
Pizza Factory operates more than 100 locations.
