Restaurant Franchise Opportunity in Maine

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.

What to Consider Before


When considering acquiring a franchise, it’s important to remember that not every opportunity will be a good opportunity. Whether you’re specifically looking for the best pizza franchise opportunity, or you’re considering restaurant franchise opportunities in general, it’s important that you take your decision seriously and fully research the business. Before signing anything, you should fully understand not only how viable the opportunity is, but also how ethical it is and whether the things being promised to you are credible. We took our decision to start franchising seriously, waiting until we’d fully established our successful business model before we began to do so. Whilst our track record of opening over 70 new franchises speaks to our credit, we do fully encourage you to ask any questions you have and request any information you need from us as part of your research process.

Current & Future Costs

It’s very important to consider the costs when deciding whether any business opportunity is viable for you. This doesn’t just include the initial costs, such as the initial franchise fee and setup costs, but also any ongoing and future costs. This means any costs directly associated with the day-to-day running of the business, but also ongoing franchise fees, and potentially even loan repayments. You should ask plenty of questions at the discovery day and speak to existing franchisees to make sure you’re getting the full picture when it comes to costs.

Brand Strategy

Whether you’re deciding between a number of brands in the same industry, or you’re just wondering whether to go with a specific restaurant franchise opportunity, you need to consider the brand’s strategy and reputation. The brand you go with will be a huge part of your business’s identity, so you need to make sure that its vision, ideals, and values align with your own.

Brand’s Legal & Financial History

When you choose to take a pizza franchise opportunity, you are to a large extent tying yourself and your business’s reputation to the brand’s. Since any bad publicity regarding unethical or dubiously legal behavior would impact you too, you should be sure to do your due diligence beforehand. This can include checking facts against the public record, reviewing the brand’s financial statements to make sure they’re stable, and making all the inquiries you need to in order to feel confident. As well as avoiding risks later, this also helps to ensure that you’ll be going with a brand you can be proud to associate yourself with.

Marketing & Operational Support

When you franchise, you should be getting access to more than just a brand name. Any good franchise will also be offering you marketing and operational support, as well as all the training you need to get started. Be sure to ask enough questions to know exactly what help and support you can expect, and consider verifying this against the experience of existing franchisees.

Current Franchise Markets

Any respectable brand should be willing to help you connect with existing franchise owners, and this presents you with a great opportunity. Speaking to existing franchisees can help you get an honest and unbiased view of the process and results, as well as any challenges they faced which you might not have expected. Be sure to ask them about the training and support they’ve received, their results, and whether there’s anything else that they think you should know.

All of our new single-unit franchisees play a key role in deciding how their stores are developed right from the start and can put their local community at the center of it. That means incorporating local art and culture into the décor, but so much more than that. You are free to use your space to support local schools, charities, and sports clubs, as well as putting on events such as trivia hours and live music nights to really bring your community together.

If this is something you’re interested in, you can request further information and arrange to attend one of our discovery days, where we can answer any questions you may have and really help you to understand what we’re offering. We’re also happy to make arrangements for you to visit our existing stores and meet with current franchisees so that you can be fully informed before you make your decision.

Frequently Asked Questions About

  2. How long does it take?

    As with any restaurant franchise, there are a variety of factors that can affect an opening timeline, including site selection, build-out, permitting, staffing and more. With that in mind, most stores average around nine months between signing the agreement and opening their doors. Looking to move a bit faster?

  3. How much does it cost?

    The total cost per unit varies by size and location, but we estimate start-up costs to be between $364,750 to $610,000. Financing can be secured through third-party lending sources. You can find a full investment breakdown here, and we’re always happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
  4. How much control will I have?

    For a franchise brand, it’s important to maintain consistency across locations to ensure that every guest enjoys the same high-quality experience, regardless of where they visit. Consistency also helps to support brand recognition, which benefits the entire franchise system. Each Your Pie restaurant will feature the same general layout, color schemes, equipment and menu; however, our team works closely with you to localize your store as much as possible. We work to strike a perfect balance between an established, national brand and a local favorite. This goes for outreach, too. As a core value at Your Pie, our franchisees share a passion for community involvement—but they have the freedom to decide exactly what that involvement looks like in their individual market.
  5. How much money can I make?

    Franchisees are provided with benefits associated with the overarching brand, which can include the brand’s marketing strategies and research on successful business procedures. At Your Pie, franchisees pay a 5% royalty fee in exchange for Your Pie’s knowledge and licensing and a 1% contribution to the brand’s advertising fund to support marketing efforts. When evaluating franchise opportunities, royalty fees are a great indication of how much of the profits a franchisee has to give up, and how much they can expect to keep.
  6. How do you find the right location?

    With more than 70 stores across 16 states, we have an established presence but plenty of room to grow. When it comes to selecting a location, Your Pie has pre-developed methods to help determine where our brand will be most successful. We use these tools and processes as a means of protecting your franchise investment and ensuring that your location will support a thriving business.
