More Happy Franchisees

"One of the most amazing benefits of owning a Pizza Factory is my availability to be with my children. My daughters are 11 and 13 years old and are very busy with school, sports, 4H, and other activities. I cannot miss these once in a lifetime moments that I'm able to share with them. Days, nights, and weekends, I can schedule my time around attending important events with my family." - Troy Van Velson, Corcoran Pizza Factory
