Why Invest in a Houston, TX Pizza Franchise

Pizza is always a popular dinner and lunch choice for Americans, including families and children. Did you know that the pizza industry currently generates $40 billion in annual sales, with the average American eating 23 pounds of pizza per year? Our customers love our unique, fresh, and tasty wood-fired pizzas, and we love knowing they are satisfied and will return for more.

Houston is optimal for setting up a franchise with over 2 million people and an average household income of $52,450. Choosing the right location is essential. With Houston’s large number of strip malls, the city offers many high-traffic opportunities to attract guests. Better than average year-round temperatures also mean you can offer outdoor seating options– which can increase your revenue and give customers another reason to come back for more.


Multiple Pizza Franchise Models Available

If you’re looking for a pizza franchise business for sale, Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza meets the demand of today’s consumers by offering fresh ingredients and speed of preparation.

There are several different models for you to consider:


  1. Core Restaurant – This concept is modeled after our flagship wood-fire pizza restaurant. Offering sit-down dining with an open kitchen floor plan, guests can watch their pizzas being baked in our wood-fired ovens. Additional options to increase sales include over-the-phone and internet orders, carry-out orders, curbside pick-up, and third-party delivery services.
  2. Core Restaurant and Taproom – Our taproom model means guests can select and pour their own drinks using innovative bracelet technology. This option builds on our core restaurant model and is perfect for tapping into the popular craft beer scene. Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza is the only fast casual pizza franchise offering a self-serve option for beer, wine and mixed cocktails. It is perfect for larger locations, particularly those with the opportunity for outdoor seating.
  3. Take Out and Delivery Only – This is an ideal option for any investors wanting to keep their initial investment low while still providing a great experience for guests. Orders can be taken online, by phone, or through third-party delivery services. Some locations also offer limited outdoor seating for guests wanting to eat on-site.
  4. Core Restaurant + Mobile Food Truck or Trailer – Our two “on the road” options to bring our wood-fired pizza to more people include a food truck and a food trailer. With the rising popularity of street food, our food truck option is a great investment choice offering variety and mobility.
