Pizza Factory Franchise Opportunity

Founded more than 35 years ago, Pizza Factory has stayed true to its roots with hardworking owners, family-friendly dining and high-quality products (pizza, pasta, wings, sandwiches, salads, beer, wine and more). With multiple restaurant designs, including a Pizza Factory Express model, and robust off-premise dining options including delivery and mobile ordering through our app, Pizza Factory is built for the future of the restaurant industry.

Currently, there are more than 100 locations based in five states throughout the West Coast. Pizza Factory is looking to add additional franchise locations in key markets throughout the country.

In support of the town’s Pizza Factory calls home, the consummate family-focused business launched the well-known “No Bully Zone” program that raises awareness about the prevalence of bullying in schools and throughout the community. Through community partnerships, Pizza Factory fights to put an end to harsh bullying wherever and whenever it occurs. In addition, Pizza Factory also offers fundraising programs to support local schools, youth sports leagues, as well as other community groups and organizations.
