One thing makes Papa Murphy’s different: they don’t cook pizzas.
As the largest take ‘n’ bake pizza chain in the United States with more than 1500 locations, Papa Murphy’s handcrafted pizzas are made fresh in store each day, then baked at home by customers. It’s become a winning formula for the 37-year-old brand, which has consistently been ranked #1 by consumers through Technomic, MarketForce, and NRN. Now, Papa Murphy’s is focused on becoming even more convenient for customers by leveraging third-party delivery, enhanced online ordering, continuing menu innovation, and refocusing on a solid partnership with franchise owners – the heart of the business.
Three key factors make this business a great opportunity for entrepreneurs:
Simple Operations – Because our entire concept is take ’n’ bake, our owners do not hassle with the complications that other restaurants have. There are no commercial ovens so that eliminates cooking and the special requirements and costs that go along with it. And with no cooking, there is no sit-down dining which reduces space requirements and lease costs.
Consumer Appeal –We offer our guests the unique experience of watching their pizza being made fresh before their eyes and then taking it home to bake it to perfection – complete with a distinctive and mouthwatering aroma that brings families and friends together.
Historical Performance – There are over 1,500 stores open in 39 states, Canada and UAE with over 400 franchise owners from various backgrounds and careers – all who fell in love with our product and saw the opportunity to control their own future.
