What products must be purchased by the Pizza World franchisee?

To preserve the uniformity of our franchises and ensure food consistency and quality, stores must be operated per our proprietary business techniques, systems, policies, and procedures.  Accordingly, you must follow the standards and specifications established concerning food products, packaging, advertising materials, supplies, ingredients, equipment, computer hardware and software, fixtures, furnishings, and other items used in the store’s operation.  Moreover, to enable our franchisees to (i) obtain superior equipment, supplies, and food & beverage products that are not otherwise available to individual franchisees and (ii) benefit from reduced prices and more efficient and timely deliveries based on the leverage gained from increased buying power, we may designate approved suppliers for specific items required in the operation of your store.

A list of approved products and the suppliers from which those products may be purchased will be published in our confidential operations manuals or policy and procedure statements or provided to you by other written communication, and we may amend the list.  Currently, you much purchase the following proprietary items from approved suppliers: (i) mozzarella cheese and chicken products & Italian vinaigrette salad dressings; (ii) pizza sauce, Italian sausage, Pizza World cooked beef; (iii) pizza boxes and other paper supplies.  We estimate the construction of your Pizza World Store to be between 90 to 120 days. This can vary depending on location, style of store, and size.  Please fill out the Franchise Application and return it along with the required information. Upon receipt, we will contact you.  For further information, please call or write to the Franchise Development Dept.
