Over the last few years, pizza restaurants have grown in popularity and offer a great opportunity for franchisees. Your Pie is currently providing restaurant franchise opportunities in Kentucky with an emphasis in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky. If you aren’t located in one of these cities, contact Your Pie’s development team to inquire about other opportunities.
Kentucky offers the perfect demographic areas for a Your Pie franchise. Louisville is the largest city in Kentucky and a major tourist hotspot. In Lexington, you have a large population of college-aged students as well as millennials pursing careers. The University of Louisville is situated right smack in the middle of the city, making it a hub of traffic and hungry passengers. Downtown Louisville is situated on the Ohio River, and offers a great atmosphere where young professionals can dine throughout the day.
Lexington also boasts an impressive tourism presence, as it’s the second largest city in Kentucky and nicknamed the “Horse Capital of the World.” Lexington is also home to the University of Kentucky, and thousands of college students, with an average age of only 33 years old. Consider opening your franchise close to Kentucky Horse Park or outside the Lexington Opera House. Both cities offer a diverse combination of college town and business districts, which offers the ideal area for a Your Pie franchise.
Take a look at our restaurant business franchise model to learn about how franchising works!
Let’s get started! Candidate signs the franchise agreement, obtaining rights from the business to develop a new location and pays the initial franchise fee.
The franchisee works with the development team on site selection, build-out, permitting, staffing and more.
The franchisee completes training at Your Pie headquarters in Athens, Georgia, to learn about day-to-day operations.
We’re almost there! Prior to grand opening, each new restaurant hosts three days of soft opening ‘Dine & Donate’ events to raise money for a local charity, connect with the local community and allow the store team to practice serving a high-volume crowd.
Congrats—it’s grand opening day! The franchisee is now fully in charge of running the restaurant but retains access to the home office team for ongoing marketing and operational support.
When you purchase a franchise, you’re buying into an established business operating at a high enough level to allow for expansion. Franchising eliminates much of the risk of entrepreneurship, as you know the model has already proven successful and competitive within the market.
A good franchisor supports store owners through every stage of development and well beyond grand opening. At Your Pie, our corporate team is comprised of seasoned industry executives with extensive experience and a deep understanding of the franchise landscape, whose primary goal is to support unit profitability and ensure franchisee success for years to come—not just on opening day.
Many franchise brands have local marketing resources outlined and available for new franchise owners, including assets and tested strategies for both digital and print marketing. Your Pie marketing is led by Marketing Director Hassy Braggs, who leverages previous experience from brands like Chick-fil-A, ESPN, LongHorn Steakhouse and more to create effective local marketing strategies for owners.
As a franchise brand, we have access to more competitive pricing on equipment, ingredients, vendors and more, compared to an individual business owner.
As a franchise owner, you don’t have to worry about designing your restaurant from scratch. The layout of the restaurant, the equipment and furniture have all been thoroughly researched by the franchisor to ensure quality and consistency across locations.
All Your Pie franchisees complete our robust training program prior to opening, plus enjoy ongoing access to our corporate team and network of franchisees who have likely already encountered any hiccups or issues you may face. Our team’s combined experience is an invaluable resource, and we believe in sharing our learnings to benefit all franchisees.
