What to Consider Before

BUYING A FRANCHISE

Think about what you want from a franchise before applying for one. Not all franchise opportunities are good opportunities, and this can be especially true when dealing with fast-casual franchises. Make sure you do your research and understand a business's reputation and target demographic before buying into it. For example, if you have aspirations to open a franchise that has particular economic and cultural appeal that may not work in other markets then these companies may be ill-suited for your restaurateur ambitions. We decided to franchise when we realized that our business model worked so well. We’ve opened 70+ franchises over the years by following this formula and we’re not done yet. We have a proven track record and are actively looking for new franchise partners.

Current & Future Costs

While you can easily find out what current franchise costs are, it's harder to figure out future ones. Ask questions during your discovery day and contact other franchisees for more information about their experience—that'll give you a better idea of potential expenses down the road. Costs can fluctuate depending on the type of franchise and how many other locations it already has.

Brand Strategy

Consider your preferences when choosing a brand and ask yourself why you prefer certain brands over others. Is it a brand you can see yourself working for day after day? Does it align with your values? How does the company treat its employees? Is there a strong local community of franchisees and support from the parent company?

Brand's Legal and Financial History

Research the company to ensure that it is committed to ethical practices, transparency, and good governance. Ask for financial statements or other reports showing how profits are distributed among stakeholders and how the company conducts its business. Make sure that you understand the company’s business model and the franchisor’s role in helping you succeed as a franchisee.

Marketing and Operational Support

Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure your franchise will provide training and support before and after opening. Ask about the franchisor’s marketing and promotional plan, including its role in local advertising, community involvement, and other initiatives that support franchisees. The more understanding you have of your marketing strategy, the better.

Current Franchise Markets

Connect with existing franchise owners to gain insight into the process, challenges, and successes experienced in their markets. This will give you an idea of what to expect when you open your own franchise location. If there are several locations in close proximity, ask about their experiences and how they work together as a community.

We saw in Your Pie was a way for us to connect to our community. And make a difference in our community. It’s not just a store, it's our place. That’s what attracted us to Your Pie over and above all the other franchises we looked at.

Instead of trying to tackle all the challenges a new business venture presents, you can discuss them with an experienced leadership team and other aspiring entrepreneurs. The franchise community is a great place to share expertise and learn from others. It’s also an excellent way to network with potential customers, suppliers, partners, and other businesses.

While embracing the strength of a well-known and respected brand like Your Pie Pizza, you can still enjoy the independence of running a business that’s all your own. You’ll have access to a support system that can help you build your business and make it profitable. And if you’re looking for an easy way to get into the pizza business, becoming a franchisee of Your Pie Pizza is a great option to consider.

We are seeking business partners that share our passion for pizza and who believe in supporting the communities where they operate. Next steps: request information and submit a franchisee application. Once accepted, participate in Discovery Day and visit and interview existing store owners. Finally, you will sign a franchise agreement, pay licensing fees, participate in operational and management training, and start running your store.

New single-unit franchisees are vital to the success of our business's strategy, as they get directly involved in every aspect of its operation, and can make or break any restaurant. Your Pie Pizza’s organic digital marketing handles all of your store’s SEO strategies and digital advertising costs, which ensures that the brand grows locally. We encourage you to pursue other digital marketing strategies through our partners to ensure that your sales are maximized from the start.

Our franchisees take part in local community events and support charities that are important to the neighborhood. Many franchisees host local events that add to the fun of working in their stores, such as trivia night, happy hour, and karaoke.

Frequently Asked Questions About

Virginia Franchise Opportunities

  1. How much support will I receive?


    Our team exists to support you. When you sign your franchise agreement, you get so much more than a restaurant—you get a franchise family, and that’s exactly how you’ll be treated. Even after your store is open, we continue to provide marketing resources, operational guidance and more to help you achieve success. Plus, each store has its own Field Support Manager who serves as your dedicated, day-to-day problem solver. Learn more.
  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? We might have an existing location available for purchase in your area. Fill out our franchising form to learn more!
  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. Check out our available markets map, and fill out our franchise form to get in touch about a specific market.
