Papa Murphy’s Is A Top Franchise

Entrepreneur ranks Papa Murphy’s as a top franchise

It’s no surprise that Papa Murphy’s regularly claims a spot on “best of” lists for consumers and small business owners alike. As the nation’s largest take and bake pizza franchise, it’s a consumer favorite, and has also proven to be a top franchise for entrepreneurs looking to begin their own business, or to expand into the competitive pizza-franchise space with a trusted name.

A prime example is Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Food Franchises list. Papa Murphy’s has appeared on this list numerous times, which shows the brand’s resiliency and strength over time, and especially in the last couple of years, says Kim McBee, Senior Vice President of Guest Experience and Brand Marketing.

“This list 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,” McBee says. “Making this list means we’re ticking off all the right boxes!”

It’s just another way that the brand is focused on analyzing consumer desires, and then helping franchise owners meet them, without sacrificing quality or the unique Papa Murphy’s experience.
