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.
