The iconic take and bake pizza franchise is named a best-bet investment by Entrepreneur magazine on prestigious annual list

Papa Murphy’s, the nation’s largest take and bake pizza franchise, has been named a best-bet investment in Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Food Franchises of 2020 list.

The Top Food Franchises list has not only become a competitive measure for franchisors, it also serves as a primary research tool for potential franchisees. In this year’s list, Entrepreneur celebrates the resiliency and strength of franchise brands. The ranking is based on the scores each company received from the esteemed publication’s Franchise 500 formula, which evaluates costs and fees, size and growth, franchise support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

“We are delighted to be included on the Entrepreneur Top Food Franchises list,” says Kim McBee, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience and Brand Marketing at Papa Murphy’s. “This is the gold standard of franchise rankings because Entrepreneur’s editorial review team goes past a superficial skimming of performance numbers and dives into the fundamentals of what a brand offers, from training and support to R&D and concept longevity. Making this list means we’re ticking off all the right boxes!”

With nearly 40 years in business, Papa Murphy’s has carved out its own lane in the pizza industry with high-quality ingredients and by providing our loyal customers with a quality product they love. What’s more, we know the only thing better than eating our fresh, made-to-order pizza is sharing it. Although we have more than 1,300 locations across the United States, Canada, and UAE, our compelling take and bake pizza franchise has plenty of room to expand our footprint even further. All we’re missing is you!

Our parent company MTY Food Group understands franchising and food, and is a dedicated partner in driving innovation, using cutting-edge technology, and sharing best practices across our franchise community.
