Why Pizza Franchises Need More Than Just Pizza.
You need more than just pizza to make it as a pizza restaurant. Offering other menu items and keeping things fresh is what keeps customers coming back. Learn more!
Variety Is The Spice of Life
Your menu is a main ingredient in the overall recipe of your restaurant’s success. If it is too big, your food cost soars. Too small and your volume may suffer due to lack of variety. So the key to creating a dynamic menu is using the ingredients that you already have and being able to offer your guest choices that are the most profitable for you.
For pizza franchises, one way to keep menus exciting while staying on-brand is to offer pizza-adjacent items such as flavorful soups, salads, and paninis, all adhering to the same beloved Italian flavors. The key is to keep it authentic. Customers step through your doors expecting a certain flavor profile. While you may offer them a variety of choices and introduce them to new flavors, it’s important to sustain a level of consistency in terms of theme.
We all know stale food is not good. Neither are stale menus. Today’s restaurant guests like consistency, but they also crave new options. Customers may walk through the doors of your pizzeria expecting only pizza, but they will be dazzled by other options you have to offer that help keep the dining experience fun, creative, and fresh.
Consider The Panini
A panini is a sandwich classically made with Italian bread, grilled to perfection and bursting with gooey cheese and other mouth-watering ingredients. Compact, hand-held, but brimming with delicious possibilities, the panini is the perfect complementary option for anyone who loves pizza but perhaps wants to try something a little different.
Panini cafes originated in Italy, providing convenient lunch and dinner-time options for hungry people on the move. Paninis may incorporate many of the same ingredients used as pizza toppings, cutting down on food costs while adhering to a similar flavor profile for the customer. By adding this grilled sandwich option to your pizza menu, Your Pie provides customers with yet another chance to enjoy our fresh, hand-crafted ingredients. Franchise owners can also take advantage of the opportunity to appeal to a broader range of tastes and cravings.
