3 Reasons Why Papa Murphy’s is a Standout Franchise Opportunity for Current Times

Papa Murphy’s dominates the take-and-bake pizza segment with fresh ingredients and a quality product consumers love

Papa Murphy’s pizza franchise has thrived during 2020 despite all the challenges and it continues to stand out as a low-cost business opportunity. Millions of loyal customers over the past 40 years have fallen in love with our take and bake pizzas. Thanks to fast, fresh and affordable pizza, we’re currently seeking entrepreneurs passionate about our food, making a difference in their community and bringing families together.

QSR Magazine reported the pizza segment is the most resilient to the global pandemic, outshining chicken, burgers and sandwiches. The article referenced a report from Datassential, citing that 63 percent of customers said they sought out pizza during the pandemic. Papa Murphy’s taps into this increased demand for pizza, plus offers a creative way for people to have a home-cooked meal experience that’s convenient, affordable and low-touch since our pizzas are picked up by the consumer and baked at home.

“There are many things that make Papa Murphy’s unique, however, our No. 1 differentiator is that we are different on purpose,” says Kim McBee, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience and Brand Marketing at Papa Murphy’s. “It is truly a benefit to take our pizza home and bake it. We make our dough from scratch, chop high-quality vegetables, butcher quality meat, and shred fresh mozzarella cheese daily. The best part is creating the perfect pizza for our customers who then take it home to bake at their convenience for their loved ones.”
