Why invest in a Philadelphia, PA pizza franchise?

Now is a fantastic time to invest in a pizza franchise. Research shows 93% of American consumers eat pizza at least once a month. It’s a popular choice for people from different backgrounds and age groups. This means you can welcome everyone from a group of friends gathering around their favorite pizza to coworkers enjoying after-work pizza and beer to young families enjoying dinner together. Combine this demand with Smokin’ Oak’s fresh ingredients and unique dining experience, and we regularly welcome back a whole range of loyal guests.

With a population of over 1.5 million, Philadelphia is a great place to open a pizza franchise business. The city is home to an extensive range of craft beers. A core restaurant plus taproom model allowing guests to pour their own drinks– could be an excellent option for you to explore. The city also offers plenty of large strip malls, which can be a great location for your Smokin’ Oak Wood Pizza franchise to drive traffic to your restaurant.

Multiple Franchise Models Available

If you’re seeking a pizza franchise business for sale, Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza is an opportunity you won’t want to pass up. We offer four different business models– so you can choose which style fits best with you and your community.

  1. Core Restaurant – modeled after our flagship wood-fire pizza restaurant in Rochester, MN, is an excellent option if you have a large space and want to take advantage of the warm Orlando weather with outdoor seating options. This model provides sit-down dining and an open-plan kitchen where guests can watch their pizzas cook in our wood-fired ovens.
  2. Core Restaurant and Taproom – building on our core restaurant model, this option provides guests the opportunity to be their own bartender. They can explore the taproom, featuring a wall of various beers, wines, and mixed drinks, and then select and pour whichever one they want to taste. Our innovative bracelet technology connects to their credit card, so the spirits are automatically added to their bill.
  3. Take Out and Delivery Only – an ideal option for anyone looking to keep their initial investment and overhead costs low. This model offers home delivery using a third-party delivery company, taking orders online or over the phone. Depending on your space, you can also offer limited seating for guests who want to eat on-site.
  4. Core Restaurant + Mobile Food Truck or Trailer – our “on the road” options help bring our wood-fired pizza to more people. With the rising popularity of street food, our food trucks are great investment choices that provide flexibility, variety, and mobility, to serve our guests at events, at pop-ups, or in their own neighborhoods.
