Take a look at our restaurant business franchise model to learn about how franchising works!
Getting started as a franchisee with us is easy. All you need to do to get started is sign the franchise agreement, obtain the rights to develop your new restaurant, and then pay the initial franchise fee.
You’ll receive our full support during the development process as we actively work with you every step of the way. This includes everything from site selection and build-out to permits and staffing.
We’ll provide you with full training to make sure you get off to the best start. This will cover everything you need to know as you take over the day-to-day running of your new restaurant.
Three days before your grand opening, the soft opening lets you raise money for a local charity and start connecting with your community. It’s also the perfect opportunity for your staff to begin settling into their roles.
The grand opening means you fully taking over operations for your brand-new restaurant. You’re not alone though, as our corporate teams will still continue to provide operational and marketing support as needed.
We're committed to quality and the Your Pie Family.
Building your brand name and reputation can be one of the hardest parts of starting any new business. You can avoid those difficulties and get off to the best start by leveraging our recognizable brand and our reputation for quality. This allows you to focus on doing what you do best, managing a restaurant that serves the best food with the best customer service.
When you choose to take up one of our franchise opportunities, you’re also choosing to receive the best support at every stage of the process. Our expert support teams in our corporate office will be on your side throughout your journey, from the start of development all the way to day-to-day operations. This means assistance with everything from training and operations to marketing, PR, and technology.
Growth is one of our pillars of success, so you know we’re serious about it. As we grow, we’re hopeful that our franchisees will be able to grow with us. Once you’ve gotten to grips with running your first restaurant with us, we’d love it if you want to take on even more. Many franchisees choose to build on the knowledge and experience they gain by moving on to multi-unit ownership, and you could too.
Our core values underpin the way we run our business and work with our franchisees, and they’ll keep everything right as you run your restaurant and deal with your staff, customers, and suppliers too. They emphasize the importance of people and the connections between them, building communities, and always delivering the best in terms of quality, attitudes which are the foundation of any successful restaurant.
Our restaurant model provides a layout including all of the modern architecture and equipment you need to quickly and efficiently provide your customers with the quality food they’ll quickly come to expect from you. What’s more, it also provides plenty of scope for customization and personalization, with the freedom to incorporate community art and local aesthetic styles into your décor and design.
Our brick oven cooking methods are based on techniques we learned from the Italian island of Ischia, and produce the most delicious pizzas, cooked to perfection with their toppings complemented by robust, smoky flavors. Bringing people together over good food is at the heart of our mission, and our wonderful pizzas do just that. What’s more, they’ll keep your customers coming back too.
We understand that you may not have experience with all aspects of running your own restaurant, and that’s okay. When we’re talking to potential franchisees, the number one thing we’re looking for is that they share our passion for pizza and that they have the drive to build that passion into something special.
That means that we’ll provide all the training and support you need to make your restaurant a success, starting from the very first day you sign on with us. We know that there are many complexities to running a business that you might not have considered and that, even though they’re unavoidable, they aren’t as important to your ability to deliver great food, great customer service, and build a sense of family amongst your team. That’s why we’ll help you take care of all of them.
This means we’ll assist with the technicalities like permitting, but you’ll also have our full support from the start as you select and develop your site. This support continues all the way through to help with marketing, PR, and day-to-day operational issues for as long as you’re with us, which we’re sure will be a long time.
We know that starting any business can be hard, so if you’re looking for restaurant franchise opportunities in Michigan, you should definitely consider Your Pie Pizza. The strength of our established brand, tried and tested business model, and first-class support allow you to skip over the challenges you would face launching your own concept. This means a better start for you but also being freer to focus on the elements of the business you are truly passionate about, such as building a strong team, cooking the best food and giving the best service, and connecting with your community.
As part of our support, we’ll take care of all organic digital marketing costs as we implement our proven SEO strategy, ensuring that your restaurant’s brand grows locally. On top of this, we offer additional digital marketing options through our partners, which will further boost awareness of your restaurant, increasing sales both at opening and on an ongoing basis.
A key part of our values is celebrating and bringing together local communities, and we’re happy to see that our franchisees fully embrace that, with many running events such as trivia nights, happy hours, karaoke nights, and live music performances. These, combined with participation in local programs supporting local schools, charities, and sports teams, mean that our restaurants really do become a cornerstone of the community.
If all this sounds like something you would be interested in, then you should contact us for more information. We’ll be happy to arrange for you to attend one of our discovery days and meet some of our existing franchisees, as well as answering any questions you still have. Once that’s done, you’re free to proceed with the application process and get started on your journey with us, knowing you’ll be fully supported by our expert team all the way.
