What Type of Support Should a Franchise Owner Expect from a Franchisor?

One of the major benefits of becoming a franchisee as opposed to starting a business from scratch is the opportunity to be involved with an established business with tried-and-true methods, instant name recognition and extensive corporate support to back you up.

For Pizza Factory franchise owners, you don’t need to be an expert to own a pizza franchise. Our robust support team is here to guide you through training, operations, marketing and more.

Here’s a closer look at some of the types of support you should expect to receive as a franchise owner:

Site Selection and Construction

Location is one of the key components of any franchise decision. Depending on the franchise, you may be assigned a pre-approved site or assisted in finding a suitable location. After signing a lease, construction begins, turning the vacant storefront into the familiar look and feel of the brand. Consistency is an important part of the franchise experience, which means the finishes, signage and quality remain standard across every location.

For our pizza-preneurs, you’ll work closely with Eric Lombardi, director of sites. Not only is he a multi-unit operator, but he’s also an expert on the construction and real estate process—from planning to implementation to completion.

Training and Robust Operations

Most franchisors provide an in-depth training program, designed to show you the ins and outs of the business often with a mix of classroom instruction and in-store training. Beyond initial training, franchisees benefit from ongoing education through additional webinars and conventions to ensure your franchise business is running at maximum efficiency.

Pizza Factory franchisees reap the rewards of a robust training program and the team will visit your location regularly to assist you on-site with questions or concerns. From our initial four-week-long kitchen and in-store training to our week-long new store launch support and ongoing business guidance from field staff, we provide ease of operations with proven systems and processes. It’s what makes us one of the best pizza franchises – it’s no wonder Entrepreneur named us a Top Food & Beverage franchise in their Best of Pizza category.

Detailed Marketing Plan

For most franchise businesses, franchisees contribute to the individual marketing fund that goes towards large-scale marketing efforts. At the local level, franchisors provide guidance in generating publicity and exposure for your grand opening and local advertising campaigns.

Whether it’s through marketing support, research and development, brand and trademark management, technical support, strategic planning, and many more areas – our team is always working to grow your bottom line. Our team supports you with the marketing partnerships to drive sales, email marketing, social media support and more.
