Invest in a Papa Murphy's Pizza Franchise

Our History

Papa Murphy’s pioneered the Take 'N' Bake pizza business more than 30 years ago and since that time, we’ve developed a fanatical loyal customer following and helped hundreds achieve their entrepreneurial dreams through franchise business ownership. Currently, our system strength includes 38 states, coast to coast, with over 1,500 stores open worldwide.

Our Product

We’ve been creating “Love at 425 Degrees” because we know families sometimes run a little hot and even a little cold. But when a family gets together around a Papa Murphy’s pizza — they create it, take it and bake it in their own oven so everyone can enjoy a home-cooked meal. Our dough is prepared daily in every store location and we only use 100 percent all-natural, whole milk mozzarella that we freshly shred in each store. Our vegetables are sliced, diced and chopped fresh by hand because a little extra work means a lot of extra flavor. From our pepperoni to our grilled chicken, it’s all 100% real meat with no added fillers.  Fresh ingredients and low prices – it’s easy to fall in love!

At Papa Murphy’s, we’re energized about offering the best pizza franchise opportunity in the country. Combining the $38 billion pizza industry’s surging potential, consumer demand for a better product and Papa Murphy’s unique Take and Bake Pizza model, we’re positioned to grow.
