“We Toss’em, They’re Awesome”

Our hand-tossed pizzas are simply the best. Each bubbly, cheesy pie is made with the 100% real mozzarella cheese and our signature sauce. It’s hard to say what makes it so delicious: the dough, the sauce, or is it the fresh toppings? We’ll let you decide, if you can.


93% of Americans eat at least one pizza per month.

The proof is in the pie: since our early days in Oakhurst, California, we’ve opened over 100 new locations… and the next one might just be yours. At Pizza Factory, community is at the core of everything we do. Whether it’s our “No Bully Zone” or our flexible restaurant build-outs to meet different local needs, we want to work with our franchisees to make each local area just a little bit brighter.

World-Class Restaurant Franchisee Training

As a Pizza Factory franchisee, you’ll never be alone. We’re your ongoing support team, and we have over 30 years of experience to draw from in helping our franchisees:

  • In-demand opportunity. 83% of our franchise owners are former customers, employees or referrals from our franchisees
  • Small markets are big business. Many of our owners thrive in smaller communities, with the potential for reduced real estate costs, less competition and greater market share
  • Hands-on training and store opening assistance
  • Access to our in-house advertising team as you develop your marketing strategy
  • Exclusive pricing negotiated with our vendors at the national level
  • Annual franchise meetings for learning and networking
  • Multi-unit development opportunities

Our franchisees are the heart of our business, and we take our role in their success very seriously.  

Community Involvement

Pizza Factory strives to make an impact in the communities it serves. Key community involvement initiatives include:

No Kid Hungry - One in six kids in the United States struggles with hunger. We've partnered with No Kid Hungry, which helps children access healthy meals.

No Bully Zone - Started in 2009 by CEO Mary Jane Riva (who was a franchisee at the time) as a way to give new teenage employees a chance to learn, and a chance for other young adults to get to know them before judging them. The program has grown to include more than 100 franchise locations and their surrounding communities.



Who We're Looking For

When it comes to franchisees, we’re looking for people with some passion – passion for their communities, and passion for their work. If you can’t bring enthusiasm and commitment to your restaurant, it just won’t be a good fit. Aside from that, here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Excitement about being part of a team
  • Strong work ethic
  • A desire to bring high-quality, fresh pizza to your community (and sandwiches, and salads, and breadsticks…)
  • Restaurant franchise experience is helpful
  • Owner-operators are encouraged, but it’s not a requirement
  • Multi-unit restaurant franchisees are welcomed
