Pizza & Beer: The Ingredients to Restaurant Franchise Success

There’s no denying that beer is amazing and pizza is delicious. When you put them together, it’s one of the best food combinations around. No matter what your go-to toppings are, the right beer can make your pizza taste even better!

At Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza, we’re taking a fresh approach to franchising with versatile pizza franchise models, full franchise support, and world-class resources. Our pizza and taproom model combines the best of both worlds to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests that keeps them coming back for more.

Thinking about opening your own pizza and beer franchise? Here’s how pizza and beer can be your secret ingredients to franchise success.

Why Pizza & Beer is the Perfect Combination

Pizza and beer go hand-in-hand—and it’s easy to see why. Most people agree that pizza and beer are a great match because you know exactly what you’re getting when you place an order.

After all, everyone has a go-to pizza place for social gatherings with friends, family, and coworkers. And when you consider that countless beer pairings taste delicious with pizza, it only makes sense that these two mouthwatering flavors make a winning combination.

With the right pairings, pizza and beer enhance or contrast flavors with each other. Although ales and pilsners typically reign supreme at local breweries, they’re not always the best match for daring pizza toppings. That’s why visiting a pizza and taproom is like an adventure: Guests can experiment with different self-serve beers, from sours to lagers, to find the perfect pairing for their favorite pizza toppings.

A Fresh Approach to Fast-Casual Pizza Restaurants

At Smokin’ Oak Pizza, our pizza and beer restaurants combine a self-serve beer and wine wall with our fast-casual restaurant model. Delicious beer is the perfect addition to our fresh, wood-fired pizza. Not only does it wow our guests, but it keeps them coming back to experiment with new flavor combinations.

So, how does it work? When they arrive at the taproom, our guests order their food and open a tab. Then, a cashier scans their driver’s license and gives them an RFID-enabled bracelet. Then, the Guest is free to taste our various beers, wines, and mixed drinks.

Our pizza and taproom restaurant is incredibly popular with millennials, offering the freedom to taste any product by the ounce before committing to a full glass. And it’s not just about the alcohol! Our innovative franchise model creates a memorable experience, as guests can enjoy their local favorites with our delicious wood-fired pizza.

Combine the Best of Both Worlds

Everyone knows that pizza and beer are a winning combination—and our pizza and taproom franchise model is living proof. Our state-of-the-art self-serve system not only creates a unique experience but also boosts the bottom line for our franchise owners by eliminating keg shrink and over-pours.
