Opening Your First Franchise? Here’s What You Need to Know

By Paul2 Benninghove,

In the world today, there are many opportunities for new and veteran entrepreneurs alike to venture into the business world. One of the most popular options though is buying into a franchise. Unlike starting your own small business, opening a franchise is a business opportunity that provides you with a unique set of resources and an established brand. Over 700,000 franchises operate in the U.S., giving you your pick of industries to own a business in.
As a first-time franchisee though, you may be overwhelmed by your options, as well as the process itself. If you are looking to open your first franchise, it is important to remember the following.
When choosing which franchise opportunity is right for you it is important to evaluate costs. Each franchise system comes with unique fees in order to get the business off the ground. This includes the franchise fee, real estate (whether you will be buying or renting space), and equipment and supplies.
Once you have selected the franchise system for you, you will need to ensure that you meet all the franchisor requirements. This varies from system to system, but generally you will need to meet certain requirements for net worth, available cash, and experience in the industry.
When considering any franchise, it is vital that they provide you with a franchise disclosure document (FDD). This document provides important information about the initial fees and investment. If a franchisor does not provide you with an FDD, it is best to look for other options.
After applying to be a franchisee, the franchisor will provide you with a franchise agreement that you should read closely.
From here, you will want to select a location for your business, train your staff, and prepare for opening day. With most franchise systems, their team will work with you closely to find success in each of these steps.
At Johnny’s Pizza House, we proudly offer fast casual pizza franchise business opportunities to communities throughout Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. If you are looking to purchase your first franchise, we are here to help. Contact our team today to learn more!

Tips for Success: Choosing the Right Franchise System for You

By Paul2 Benninghove,

Franchising has become one of the best ways for new and seasoned entrepreneurs alike to venture into small business ownership. There are hundreds of available franchise opportunities throughout the U.S., so people interested in this endeavor must carefully plan how they are going to make their dream a reality and with who. Since there are so many options, it is important for people interested in franchises opportunities, follow these steps in order to create a successful partnership with their franchisor.

1. What is your financial capacity to start a business? Since most franchise systems require a set amount of capital to start the business, you will first need to identify your capabilities and look for a system that aligns with your finances. There are also other costs associated with opening a franchise location including rent, utilities, marketing, etc. Since every franchise is different, you will want to make sure that you can afford to buy into your selected franchise.

2. What kind of franchise do you want to own? From real estate to restaurants, there are a vast number of franchises opportunities. One of the most popular types of opportunities though is pizza franchises. With the right pizza franchise, you can deliver great food and a welcoming atmosphere to your community.

3. Have you interviewed potential franchisors? After narrowing down your top choices for franchise systems, you will want to interview each franchisor and decide which partnership is the best fit for you. Since this is one of the biggest business decisions you will ever make, it is important for you to feel comfortable with the franchisor and get any questions or concerns addressed, long before you sign the dotted line.

By TopFire Media,

America is in love with pizza, and it’s easy to see why. Pizza is a simple, versatile, and deeply satisfying dish covered in melty cheese, and it tastes just as delicious cold as it is does when it’s hot and fresh.

Unless you have a real sweet tooth, it should come as no surprise that in a 2016 Harris Poll, pizza beat chocolate and mac ‘n’ cheese to the title of America’s favorite comfort food.

You might be interested in this data point as well: A 2017 industry report by PMQ Pizza Magazine valued the U.S. pizza market at a whopping $44 billion. If you’re an entrepreneur looking for a slice of the action, then Johnny’s Pizza House is one of the best pizza franchises for you.

When you open a Johnny’s Pizza House franchise you make a commitment to serving food with an emphasis on fresh.

No pre-cooked hamburger or sausage pellets here, we sling fresh ground beef and pork sausage. The great taste of our food is one reason we’ve been able to open almost 50 restaurants across three states since we opened in 1967.

Promote strong ties within the community

A Johnny’s Pizza House franchise is also the best pizza franchise to own because we believe in nurturing the communities we feed. It’s why we started our Raising Dough program to create fundraising opportunities.

What Should You Ask Before Buying a Pizza Franchise?

By TopFire Media,

Big question mark on a piece of paper.

Investing in anything is a major investment! It’s important to emphasize that, while funding is a key question when investing in a franchise, it’s definitely not the only question. Before you invest in a franchise like Johnny’s Pizza House, there are several questions you should ask.

What Is the Background of the Franchise?

First things first: It’s important to understand the background of the franchise. This means knowing the founders down to the various locations. It’s also important that you note the motivation that led to the creation of the business. Compare this background with your reasons for investing in the franchise. Does it match? Does this pizza pie smell like success? It’s more than likely that every question can’t be answered at first glance. However, it’s vital to have and address these questions when considering the investment.

Johnny’s Pizza House began with a man, a slice, and a dream when founder Johnny Huntsman opened the first location in 1967. Now, we currently have 44 open locations in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Each of our pizza restaurant franchises carries on Mr. Johnny’s legacy of a community-focused restaurant model that serves delicious pizza to families and friends.

Where Are the Locations?

Location selection is a high priority when choosing to buy a franchise, but sometimes it’s one that is overlooked in the excitement and rush of franchise investments. As you talk to the franchisor about the opportunity, ask questions about existing locations — are they stand-alone buildings or are they part of existing buildings? If they’re part of strip malls, are they end-caps? These questions and more will help you see where existing franchises are located and what type of decisions they’ve made. When a franchisor offers site selection assistance, like Johnny’s Pizza House does, take advantage of the professional experience to help you choose the best location.

What Sets the Franchise Apart?

If you’re going to run a business that has the potential for high revenue growth, it’s necessary to show customers why your franchise is better than the rest. If you’re thinking about buying a pizza restaurant, that decision can be daunting because of the amount of competition in the industry. When looking at a pizza franchise’s unique selling proposition, you’ll want to ask the franchisor, “What makes this pizza better than all the rest?” and “How will I stand out from my competition?”

With a Johnny’s Pizza House franchise, you’ll be backed by more than 50 years of experience and a Southern tradition of great tasting pizza, extensive pizza lunch buffets, and other amazing dishes like our Flips and Peach Puddin’ Pie. We’re mainstays in communities; people make it a point to visit the pizza restaurants of their childhoods when they come home to visit. That tradition and loyalty help set us apart from the rest.

What Capital Is Needed?

Buying a franchise is an expensive endeavor. Often, restaurant franchises cost more than the franchise industry average because of the initial investment, equipment, and location costs. It’s important to make sure that the franchise you’re considering recognizes that this is a large investment: one that you need to be prepared for. Rather than invest in a franchise that’s only looking to cash a check, ask questions to make sure that the franchisor wants the best for you. While many franchises do not offer financing assistance, you should still be reassured that they want you to be in the best position possible to succeed. At Johnny’s Pizza House, that’s why we require a minimum net worth of $600,000 with $200,000 in liquid capital. We want you to have the financial capability to launch and sustain your pizza franchise.

If you’re looking to invest with a franchise with a history of success, commitment to local communities, and excitement, consider Johnny’s Pizza House. Contact us to learn more about our available opportunities and to take the next step.

Restaurants can find a home just about anywhere there are enough hungry customers. And, with no major players to truly dominate the industry, there’s a seat at the table for almost everyone.

Restaurants help support other industries

The restaurant industry is far-reaching, helping to support food growers, food manufacturers, food suppliers and materials manufacturers, and employing large numbers of individuals. Investors like owning a business that is so integrally tied to other sectors of the economy.

Owning a franchise pizza restaurant is fun and exciting

Your investments should excite you, and running a restaurant is nothing short of thrilling. The fast-paced daily energy is invigorating and can propel an investor into a new attitude. Johnny’s Pizza House restaurants are a great place for families and friends to come together and enjoy great service and great food.

Cheese, pepperoni and sausage — oh my! Everyone loves pizza, but do you realize the full scope of just how adored pizza is in the United States? While you may think that you have a solid grasp on that concept, you probably haven’t seen the numbers behind it. Keep reading for a full run-down on pizza consumption in the United States.

At home and at pizza franchise restaurants: How often do people eat pizza?

Statistics show that 93% of Americans eat at least one slice of pizza per month. People probably eat more than that, though, according to Packaged Facts, which estimates that the average American eats 46 slices of pizza per year. That equates to almost four pieces per month and 23 pounds of pizza eaten by each American on a yearly basis.

These statistics surely show how much U.S. citizens love their pizza pies, and Johnny’s Pizza House is the brand that brought cheesy love to Louisiana with its pizza franchise opportunities. Now we’re expanding our franchise system to Arkansas, Mississippi, and East Texas, bringing our delicious pizza, peach puddin’ pie, and more to communities in these locations.

How many pizzas are sold each year at pizza buffet franchises and elsewhere?

You could hazard a guess at this based on the previous statistics, but your answer probably won’t come close to the true number. According to the National Association of Pizza Operators, 3 billion pizzas are sold in the country each year. That’s a lot of pizza pies! To add to that, 36% of pizzas eaten in the USA have pepperoni as a topping on them, and Americans eat 251.7 million pounds of pepperoni each year.

At Johnny’s Pizza House, we sell customers pizza via dine-in, carryout, delivery and at our pizza buffet. An extremely popular aspect of our locations, the lunch buffet also offers pastas, cheese sticks, breadsticks, turnovers, fresh salads, dessert and more! The variety of our offerings makes Johnny’s one of the best pizza franchises to own.

How much money is spent on pizza each year?

Pizza is lots of fun, but it’s also big business, especially for pizza franchises. Americans spend a huge amount of money each year on pizza— $32 billion, according to Pizza Today. That is one whopping chunk of mozzarella!

Whether Johnny’s Pizza House guests choose traditional toppings, a specialty pizza or even a loaded-up one like the Sweep the Kitchen pizza, they love pizza just as much as the rest of the country.

This obsession seems to be here to stay, so we totally understand if you want to get in on the action! To get a piece of the pie, call 318-807-1358 or send us a message, and we’ll be in touch to tell you all about becoming a Johnny’s Pizza House franchisee.

Join the Legacy at Johnny’s Pizza House Famous Pizza Franchise

johnny Huntsman legacy
At Johnny’s Pizza House, we can’t believe how fast 50 years have flown by. Our founder Johnny Huntsman learned how to start a pizza restaurant when he opened the first Johnny’s Pizza House a half-century ago in Monroe, Louisiana. At the time, he couldn’t have dreamed that his “only link in the world’s smallest pizza chain” would extend to nearly 50 restaurants across three states.

On June 28, 2017, Huntsman — known affectionately as Mr. Johnny — passed away from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was a remarkable man who was endlessly devoted to his company, his employees and to bringing joy to everyone he encountered.

While Mr. Johnny never imagined just how much his business would grow, his employees could tell you the reasons why Johnny’s Pizza House was built to last. An employee-centered company culture makes Johnny’s a great place to work and contributes to a solid pizza franchise opportunity. We’re the same Johnny’s Pizza House we were 50 years ago. We’re still serving our original delicious pizza. And many of our employees have been with us for decades!

Start a famous pizza franchise with employee longevity

There’s something about a company that keeps people working. According to Dennis Wills, vice president of operations for Johnny’s Pizza House, many of the company’s employees have been there for a decade or longer. Of Johnny’s restaurant managers, the average tenure is about 15 years, Wills says.

Wills himself has worked for Johnny’s Pizza House for 37 years.

“Mr. Johnny has always had a passion for people, and that’s what has made our company a great place to work,” Wills says.

Johnny’s Pizza House has become a famous pizza franchise because of high-quality, fresh and delicious food and our popular lunch pizza buffet. Behind it all is a group of employees who really love working at Johnny’s. This company culture benefits those who take advantage of our pizza franchise opportunity.

An employee-owned model exemplifies our company culture

The best companies reward their employees for hard work and dedication, and those are characteristics we value in our staff. In 2000, Mr. Johnny made the decision to transition Johnny’s Pizza House to an employee-owned company. This employee stock ownership plan allows Johnny’s Pizza House corporate employees 18 and older to receive benefits in the form of company stock after they’ve worked with the company for three years.

Although this plan is not available to staff at franchise-owned locations, we believe it shows our dedication to our employees, and thereby exemplifies the commitment we have to our famous pizza franchise owners as members of the Johnny’s Pizza House inner circle. We encourage investors in our pizza franchise opportunity to support their employees through bonus programs.
