HOW YOUR PIE IS DRIVING FOOD INNOVATION IN PIZZA FRANCHISES

The way people buy pizza is changing, and Your Pie is driving food innovation in pizza franchises. Learn how Your Pie is changing the game.

A SLICE ABOVE

Your Pie was America’s first ever fast-casual pizza franchise, and we have been specializing in food innovation ever since. From our signature menu customization to unrivaled attention to customer service, Your Pie is a standout in the booming $46 billion US pizza industry.

By definition, innovation is the creation, development, and implementation of a new product, process, or service, with the aim of improving efficiency, effectiveness, or competitive advantage. While Your Pie didn’t invent pizza, we have certainly made it our own and elevated the overall enjoyment experience.

With pizza restaurants in the US reaching peak numbers, it is crucial to stand out from the crowd to both ensure franchise owner success and customer satisfaction. So what makes Your Pie the ultimate slice?

STANDING OUT FROM THE PACK

Nowadays, many pizza restaurants focus on a homogenized delivery model, emphasizing quantity and speed over authentic flavor and joyful experience. Your Pie has never lost our focus on fresh ingredients, a lively environment, and the connection shared between family and friends over a freshly prepared pizza.

In a world where people are always looking for the newest, fastest thing, there is something innovative about upholding originality. Your Pie breaks the mold in food innovation by staying true to its roots while simultaneously adapting to the needs of its customers and franchise owners. At Your Pie, authenticity is innovative.

FULL STEAM AHEAD

2020 was a challenging year for restaurants, making it the perfect time to adapt and develop new practices in order to succeed. Luckily, Your Pie had recently upgraded the technology platforms in all restaurants by installing new POS systems, introducing a new online ordering platform and a new loyalty rewards program which had us better prepared for a year no one could have anticipated.

By utilizing new software functions, Your Pie can prioritize customer experience at the forefront of its growth efforts to drive continual innovation.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, approximately 80-85 percent of Your Pie’s sales came from in-restaurant dining customers. The necessity of lockdowns and restrictions put the impetus on all restaurant owners to adapt and shift service to continue running their businesses. Your Pie was up to the challenge and partnered with some of the top third-party delivery services to set up convenient curbside pickup options as an additional way for customers to continue to enjoy their favorite Your Pie pizzas, salads, and more.

Everyone was tested during a difficult year. But Your Pie’s innovative spirit helped us press forward and learn many lessons along the way. We consider our franchise owners, staff, guests and vendors a part of our greater family, and we go to work each day hoping to make someone else’s day more delicious.

DIGGING IN

As people begin to gather around tables in restaurants again, it is most imperative for brands and franchise owners to offer something that makes them stand out from the herd. Your Pie’s unique menu customization model provides a tantalizing option to diners seeking a reprieve from a year without the fun of dining out with friends and family. We also introduce quarterly Craft Series menu options such as the “Healthy Choices” offering, BBQ Chicken Pizza and our annual favorite Peach & Prosciutto Pie to keep our selections new and fresh throughout the year.

Wood-fired brick ovens were a food innovation way back when, and Your Pie honors the tradition by preparing our pizzas as nature intended, piled with fresh ingredients and cooked to order in our authentic ovens which serve as the heart of our restaurants.

Your Pie is rooted in the past while tied to the future. Our authentic family recipes lay the foundation for our cooking processes and emphasis on integrity, just as we continue to grow our brand with new ingredients, recipes, methods, and services.

EXPRESS YOUR INNER PIZZA WITH YOUR PIE

Your Pie isn’t only the first fast-casual and one of the fastest-growing pizza franchises, we innovated the game by offering customers a fresh, authentic, interactive made-to-order experience unlike any other. Just as we offer our customers an innovative pizza dining experience, we provide our franchise owners with an innovative opportunity to join a brand that seeks to become a globally admired pizza franchise dedicated to quality and happiness.
