Operational efficiency, national advertising strength and one daypart make owning a Papa Murphy’s franchise a wise choice

When you join Papa Murphy’s franchise, you become part of a nearly 40-year-old company with national brand recognition. Our take-and-bake pizza franchise is poised for rapid growth in the booming $46 billion pizza industry. Not only are we expanding into new territory, but we also still have plenty of room for expansion in existing markets. This is why we are seeking savvy entrepreneurs who are passionate about their community, family, and – of course – pizza.

Papa Murphy’s is a best-bet investment in the ever-growing pizza segment. Our straightforward business model, world-class support and millions of devoted guests make us a worthy investment for entrepreneurs who want to make an impact. This is why we are franchise-owner-centric, which means you will never be alone in business. With bolstering support from MTY Food Group, one of the largest franchisors in the nation, our brand has achieved steady growth by leveraging national purchasing power to keep costs low and a commitment to operational excellence.

Even better, not only will our experienced leadership team help guide you through the process of owning a successful take-and-bake pizza franchise, but your franchise fee also gives you access to an unmatched world-class training and support program unlike anything else in the industry.

Here are some of the resources we provide:

  • Training
  • Hiring, training and retaining top talent in your market
  • Innovative marketing strategies
  • Professional branding
  • Customer service
  • Financial awareness
  • Ongoing education
  • Insight from industry-leading professionals

At Papa Murphy’s, we believe that owning a take-and-bake pizza franchise should be lucrative. The pizza industry is booming as Americans spend $33 billion in QSR pizza restaurants annually – and takeout has the largest share of spending at $15 billion each year, according to Statista. Additionally, our franchise owners find comfort in joining an iconic brand that serves up a healthier – and tastier – product. Unlike many of our competitors, guests come into our stores to pick up their made-to-order pizza and then they take it home to bake it. Because of this, our take-and-bake pizza model allows for a small footprint – we do not require any ovens or dine-in.

Ultimately, this not only allows for a lower cost of entry but also reduced labor costs as we have one primary daypart: dinner. The best part? Our streamlined business model allows our franchise owners to focus on building guest relationships and creating the best pizza ever. No matter how you slice it, Papa Murphy’s is committed to helping our franchise owners thrive in business over the long-term – all we’re missing is you!

The franchise fee for a traditional Papa Murphy’s restaurant is $25,000. The total investment for a new Papa Murphy’s store ranges from $367,244 to $670,498.
