For over 35 years, Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake Pizza has been providing pizza lovers with an affordable meal option without sacrificing great flavor. Our pizzas are prepared fresh in every store, every day. Our guests can custom order their toppings or choose from a wide variety of menu options, pick up the unbaked pizzas and cook them at home when they are ready to enjoy a hot pizza right out of their oven. What you might not realize, is why this business offers a great opportunity to entrepreneurs as well.
Three Key Factors Are Undeniable:
Simple Operations – Because our entire concept is take ’n’ bake, our owners do not hassle with the complications that other restaurants have. There are no commercial ovens so that eliminates cooking and the operating costs that go along with it. And with no cooking, there is no sit-down dining which reduces space requirements and labor costs.
Consumer Appeal – We offer our guests the unique experience of watching their pizza being made fresh before their eyes and then taking it home to bake it to perfection - complete with a distinctive and mouthwatering aroma that brings families and friends together.
Historical Performance –The company was founded in 1981 and currently operates more than 1,550 franchised and corporate-owned stores in 39 states, Canada and United Arab Emirates. There are over 500 franchise owners from various backgrounds and careers – all who fell in love with our product and saw the opportunity to own a business that their community would love as well.
We provide market area expertise and site evaluation, help with lease review, and strong negotiation tactics.
