International franchising allows Round Table Pizza to bring our outstanding opportunity to territories worldwide. With our franchise partners, we have tools and teams that help international franchisees spread our delicious pizza worldwide. Here are some things you need to know about international franchising with us.
International Franchising with Round Table Pizza
Round Table Pizza is excited to bring the Last Honest Pizza to markets around the globe. With five international franchises already in existence, we are in the process of opening several more locations in territories like Asia, the Middle East, and South and Central America.
By combining our impeccable quality with local flair, Round Table Pizza is keeping our restaurant relevant in international markets. To make our sauce from California-grown tomatoes, our international locations import tomato paste and our special spice blend to get the signature tang of our delicious sauce. Additionally, our restaurants use local flour to make our chewy-crunchy crust. We strive for the optimal combination of Round Table Pizza tradition with local influence to help our international franchises work.
In some territories, master franchise opportunities are available. What is master franchising? It is when the franchisor gives a person or entity the rights to expand a brand within a certain territory. The master franchisee is responsible for finding sub-franchisees and opening new locations within that territory.
Master franchise opportunities are a great way for someone with international food service experience to take on a new venture and see it grow. A master franchisee oversees their territory with an eye on the big picture as well as the finer details.
Here are some additional things to think about before you embark on an international franchise.
Choosing a Site
Site selection is the key to franchising in any market. Location has a big impact on your business because it influences how many people have access to your franchise. A great location gets plenty of impressions through foot or car traffic, which drive customers to the restaurant. Our partner, Global Franchise Group, helps all our international owners with real estate. This covers things like what to look for in an ideal site and how to lay out your restaurant.
One of the greatest things about international franchising is that it allows franchisees and franchisors to combine their skills and expertise. Your understanding of your territory is essential to building a strong business. But equally important is Round Table Pizza’s experience in the pizza industry. With our history and resources, we are poised to set up new international franchisees in key markets.
Learning the Ropes
Training is a key part of franchising, and we take this step seriously for all our international owners. Preparing each franchise owner to meet our standards is key to keeping our brand strong. We put in the time to teach our franchisees about running a business and staying true to our brand while bringing in local flavor.
We are proud of our brand and even more proud to be making the Last Honest Pizza. If you think you might be ready to bring our famous pizza to your territory, get in touch with us to get your questions answered.
