World’s Originator of Brick-Oven Customized Pizza Celebrates Record-Breaking Development With Focus on Even Stronger 2017 Growth
ATHENS, GA (PRWEB) January 27, 2017 – After celebrating the close of its strongest year of growth ever, Your Pie, the originator of the down the line, customized brick oven pizza concept, has its sights set on an even stronger start to the New Year. With the most robust pipeline in its eight-year history, the brand is perfectly positioned to use its innovative approach to down-the-line service to continue to lead the rapidly expanding QSR pizza segment.
Since Drew French founded Your Pie, the pizza concept has grown to 38 open locations and now has more than 50 stores in its development pipeline. Your Pie spent the year growing its customer base in existing territories throughout the franchise system, while also expanding presence into 13 states through a multi-unit approach which has helped operators thrive.
“When we created the concept for Your Pie, we made a commitment to providing customers with amazing taste that also incorporated the true art of pizza,” said Drew French, Your Pie founder. “With a focus on fresh, unique and artisanal ingredients, we continue to bring a vibrant, new dining experience to the pizza industry, and franchise prospects are taking notice. Now, we’re putting the entire QSR industry on notice that we will be pursuing even more aggressive growth in 2017, leveraging the unique franchise opportunity, successful business model and strong unit economics we’ve developed.”
In 2017, Your Pie will increase its focus on growth into new markets. On top of recent openings in Missouri and Maryland in the last year, Your Pie’s development team signed 26 new locations in North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, Mississippi and Colorado, with openings in the pipeline in Charlotte, Columbus, and Denver. The brand also continues to expand in existing successful markets in states like Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida, with openings also upcoming in Atlanta, North Augusta, and Orlando.
As the pizza concept continues to expand into new and existing territories, Your Pie consistently focuses on prioritizing delicious and unique ingredients. Hand-tossed dough, the freshest meats, cheeses and vegetables, and homemade sauces and salad dressings remain signature qualities of the brand’s offerings. Your Pie continues to introduce unorthodox flavor profiles to customers throughout the year, featuring unique, limited-time-only ingredients through the brand’s dynamic rotating Craft Pie Series.
“As we grow, we remain committed to delivering the same quality service and amazing food to our customers,” said Ken Caldwell, Your Pie vice president of development. “That’s easy to accomplish because of the strength of our business model. We are searching for driven, entrepreneurial-minded individuals eager to capture their dream of restaurant ownership. We know that when we put our franchise offering up against the rest of the QSR segment, Your Pie presents an extremely strong growth opportunity to prospective franchisees.”
