Papa Murphy’s Is A Consistent Standout Franchise

Leaders in the Take-and-Bake Segment

Papa Murphy’s is a standout franchise that has proven its durability and growth potential over the last few years, during some of the most challenging economic times in memory. What’s more, the brand continues to stand out as a low-cost business opportunity. Millions of loyal customers over the past 40 years have fallen in love with Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake concept, and more are doing so every day. Thanks to fast, fresh, and affordable pizza, we’re currently seeking entrepreneurs passionate about our food, making a difference in their community, and changing the way people pizza.

QSR Magazine reported the pizza segment to be one of the most resilient fast-casual food sectors during the pandemic, outshining chicken, burgers, and sandwiches. It is reported that 63 percent of customers said they sought out pizza during the pandemic. And another report says the pizza-restaurant segment posted 4.84% year-over-year growth in 2021, thanks to continued interest as well as expansion into new markets.

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 the 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 Guest 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.”
