The Demand for Take and Bake Pizza Continues To Grow

After nearly 40 years in business, our iconic take and bake pizza franchise has grown to more than 1,200 locations. Our pizza franchise continues to find success by providing our franchise owners with committed support, and providing our loyal customers with an experience that truly stands out with our convenient model, fresh ingredients, innovative products, and excellent service.

“We make our dough from scratch, chop high-quality vegetables, butcher quality meat, and shred mozzarella daily so you don’t have to” says Kim McBee, Senior Vice President of
Customer Experience and Brand Marketing at Papa Murphy’s. “The beauty of take and bake is that with an oven and just 15 minutes, you can enjoy the scratch-made meal of your dreams in the comfort of your own home. In addition to fresh pizzas, we offer hand-crafted salads, delicious side items and unique desserts.”

As the largest take and bake pizza franchise in the country, Papa Murphy’s still has plenty of room to expand. Fortunately, the demand for pizza—especially take and bake pizza—continues to grow. According to PMQ Pizza Magazine, the $46 billion U.S. pizza market is estimated to grow 10% in the next five years. Moreover, Americans love pizza so much that they spend $33 billion in QSR pizza restaurants annually, and take and bake pizza has the largest slice of spending at $15 billion each year, per Statista.
