Building a Family Franchise Legacy with Pizza Factory

Three generations of franchisees at Pizza Factory Live Oak.

At Pizza Factory, we don’t just build pizza businesses; we cultivate legacies. For generations, families have been drawn to our brand, not only for our delicious pizza but also for the opportunity to create a lasting impact together.

For the Kinser family, pizza isn’t just a meal; it’s a way of life. Paul and Audrey Kinser’s journey with Pizza Factory began in 1988, when they opened their Pizza Factory franchise in Live Oak, California. Since then, the family has been dedicated to upholding our values of quality, community and excellence across three generations.

Three Generations, One Vision

From Paul and Audrey to their son, Bob, and his wife Kathy, and now their granddaughter Amanda, each member of the Kinser family has played a vital role in shaping the success of their Pizza Factory franchise. Their journey began with a leap of faith when Paul and Audrey refinanced their house to fund their dream of owning a Pizza Factory franchise. With determination and a relentless work ethic, they transformed their vision into a reality, completing the entire construction of their restaurant in just six weeks. The adrenaline rush of those early days fueled their passion for pizza and family business, driving them to exceed expectations and set new standards of excellence.

As the business grew, Bob and Kathy seamlessly stepped into leadership roles, embracing the values instilled by their parents and also infusing their own unique perspectives and innovations. Together, they expanded the reach of their franchise, becoming beloved fixtures in their community and cherished mentors to their employees.

Now, as the third generation takes the helm, Amanda embodies the same passion and dedication that has defined her family’s legacy. “I love what I get to do—I get to raise the next generation,” Amanda shares, reflecting on her role in continuing the family tradition of excellence.

Continuing the Legacy

What sets Pizza Factory apart is our ability to bring families together through the shared experience of owning and operating a franchise. For the Kinser family, Pizza Factory isn’t just a business; it’s a source of pride, connection, and fulfillment. Together, they have created a legacy that will continue for generations to come.
