Diversify, Save Dough & Grow with Multi-Unit Franchise Ownership

Franchising is an attractive business opportunity for many reasons. It presents the opportunity to utilize an established concept with a proven blueprint of operations. Multi-unit franchising – the ownership of multiple units within a given territory – has become the go-to strategy in recent years, with the lucrative opportunity to capitalize on a specific market.

Many multi-unit owners appreciate revenue diversification by managing more than one franchise location. It can mean a safer investment since your revenue isn’t solely based on one unit.

Let’s explore the multi-unit opportunities within our piping hot pizza concept:

Multi-Brand Operators Grow Pizza Factory Footprint

As a West Coast legend with 100-plus locations, we’re strengthening our network nationwide with seasoned operators. Most recently, we signed an exciting five-pack area development agreement with seasoned multi-brand restaurant entrepreneurs, Larry Yanez and Jesus Martinez, to expand our hometown pizzeria in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Currently, the duo operates 17 Wingstop locations across Southern California. When looking to diversify their portfolio, they were attracted to our brand for the quality of our products, strong leadership team and community-centered roots.

“Jesus and I were interested in diversifying with a new brand and when searching for the right concept, Pizza Factory stood out to us,” said Yanez, owner of Fresh Up Restaurants, a restaurant development group. “The brand’s existing fanbase in California, continued commitment to innovation and hands-on corporate team were all aspects that we were searching for with our next brand. Given our experience with restaurant operations in and around San Bernardino, we’re confident Pizza Factory’s Express model will perform well in the market with its seamless approach to off-premise dining. We’re excited to expand our restaurant footprint with Pizza Factory and add the West Coast icon to our ownership portfolio.”

Pizza Factory is continuing to grow in prime markets across the country. Our flexible formats and commitment to community involvement offer an attractive investment opportunity for seasoned entrepreneurs and restauranteurs alike.
