Here at Your Pie Pizza, we’re looking for entrepreneurs who share our passion for pizza to help us with our mission to bring people together and make life’s little moments special with the help of the most delicious pizza.
With over 70 restaurants in 16 states, we have a lot of experience working with franchisees from a range of backgrounds, who have benefitted from our proven, solid business model, respected and recognizable brand, and top-notch support. This means that we know how to bring the best out of you and make your restaurant a success. All you need to bring is the right attitude and the passion to make it happen.
Underpinning all of our progress are our five pillars of success. These underscore our commitment to innovation, growth, financial prudency, a culture that makes everyone involved feel like family, and a drive to deliver the best service. We know this is the foundation of any successful business, which is why our unique and effective model has been built on them from the start.
Of course, we also couldn’t fail to mention how amazing our wonderful brick-oven pizzas are. The traditional cooking techniques which we picked up directly from Italy have been with us from day one too, and they’re a large part of what makes eating with us so special for our customers, keeps them coming back, and makes us one of the most successful pizza franchises around. The other part is a warm, comfortable, and welcoming environment, which comes from our focus on excellent service as well as restaurant layouts combining clean and modern architecture with local art and culture.
If you share our values and think you have what it takes to succeed as our next franchisee in one of our target cities such as Portland, Lewiston, or Bangor, contact us. We’ll be happy to arrange for you to attend one of our discovery days, meet with existing franchisees, and do anything else you need to feel confident as you take your first steps into the life of a pizza restaurant owner.

We aim to make it as easy as possible for you to get started when you franchise with us. Once you’re ready, all you need to do is sign the franchise agreement, obtain the rights to develop your new location, and pay the initial franchise fee.
You’ll be working closely with our dedicated team throughout the whole development process. They’re here for you with selecting your site and getting the build-out completed, as well as staffing and permitting issues.
We’ll provide you with full Your Pie Pizza training, ensuring that you have all the knowledge you need to hit the ground running. This training will cover the day-to-day operations of your new restaurant and everything else you need to make it a success.
Before the grand opening, you’ll have a three-day soft opening. This provides the perfect opportunity for you to connect with your local community and for your employees to settle into their roles, all while raising money for a local charity.
The grand opening is when you’ll be fully taking over operations for your brand-new pizza restaurant. There’s no need to panic though, our corporate teams will continue to provide you with all the operational and marketing support you need.
We're committed to quality and the Your Pie Family.
Due to our position as the first fast-casual pizza restaurant in the US and our consistent emphasis on quality food, we offer you a recognizable and well-loved brand with a reputation for quality. We don’t think we’re being unreasonable when we think of ourselves as the best pizza franchise, and we’re sure a huge amount of your potential customers will agree.
When you choose to franchise with us, you don’t just get access to our brand. You’ll be given a full support team who can help with all aspects of the business. From training to operations, and from marketing and PR to technology. Our experienced leadership team will be there to guide you whenever you need it, right from day one.
Simply taking a look at the rate at which we’ve expanded since beginning as a single restaurant in 2008 shows you how much we value growth. We know our franchisees are keen to grow and develop with us, which is why, once you’ve got to grips with your first restaurant, we make it easy for you to expand into multi-franchise ownership.
Our core values influence everything we do here, including how we interact with our franchisees. We prioritize people, so we’ll always make sure that you have the support you need to realize your potential, whilst bringing out the best in the people working with you too. We also prioritize quality and community, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to bring people together over amazing food.
We offer a restaurant model with a proven track record. You’ll be benefitting from a full plan which utilizes modern architecture whilst also allowing you enough flexibility to customize it to your aesthetic requirements. We at Your Pie Pizza encourage creativity and innovation, so that means freedom to incorporate local art and designs which represent your community.
Our brick oven pizzas are made using traditional Italian cooking methods. This means that you’ll be providing your customers with the tastiest pizzas, aromatic and cooked to perfection. There’s a reason we consider ourselves the best tasting pizza franchise, and we’re confident that our fresh brick oven pizzas will keep your customers coming back for a long time.
Since our very inception, our key driving force has been passion. That’s why it’s the number one thing we look for when deciding who’ll be a good fit as a franchisee with us. We understand that there are many people who have the passion to make their dreams work, even if they don’t yet have all the knowledge and experience to make it happen. That’s why we offer all of our new franchisees all of the training and guidance they need to make their venture into the pizza restaurant industry as successful as possible. Our experienced corporate teams will provide support from signup to opening and even beyond that, with as much ongoing operations and marketing support as you need. We know there are many complexities of owning and running any business, but that shouldn’t hold you back if you have the dream and the drive, so if you think you could be our next franchisee, don’t let concerns about the technicalities of business stop you from learning more. You only need to bring the passion, values, and people skills, and we’ll help you with the rest.
