The Pizza Industry

A Booming Industry with Room to Grow

There are few decisions more impactful than choosing to open your own business. It’s an investment in your future and your community. When you’re considering franchising, there are a number of crucial due diligence steps to take. The first and most important step is determining which industry is the best fit for your goals, skills, and budget. You have no shortage of choices, from traditional franchising options like fast food restaurants to more specialized franchises in the health and wellness industry. At Antioch Pizza, we believe that our business model, strong brand, and place in the rapidly growing pizza industry gives franchisees the tools they need to build a successful business. 

Your Opportunity in the
Pizza Restaurant Industry

It’s important to be clear-eyed about the risks of opening your own business, especially when you’re choosing to enter the foodservice industry. Many restaurants don’t survive their first year in business, and that’s true no matter how the economy is faring. A notable exception to this rule is the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry, of which the pizza industry is a part. Everybody loves pizza, with Americans eating a whopping 23 pounds of pizza each year on average. Worldwide, the pizza market is expected to increase by $51.28 billion by 2026 with an annual growth rate of 6.11%. In the US, it’s already a $45.1 billion industry.++ And thanks to affordability, consistent quality, and innovations like contactless pickup and delivery, pizza restaurants like Antioch Pizza thrived during the pandemic. It’s not hard to see why choosing to franchise in the pizza restaurant industry is a good investment. But why choose Antioch Pizza?

Our Community-Based
Business Model

Here at Antioch Pizza, we’ve built customer loyalty not only through our original recipes and homestyle menu items, but through our commitment to being the crust of the community. Every Antioch Pizza location is a foundational part of the community it serves, and local leaders know we’re an asset to the community. Our restaurants support everything from schools and places of worship to sports teams and nonprofit organizations. We’re especially proud of our high school transition program, which offers work-based learning for graduated students with disabilities who need a little extra help preparing for life after school. By becoming a part of the community’s ecosystem and supporting our neighbors, they support us in turn. Antioch Pizza’s people-centered approach to business sets us apart from other opportunities in the pizza industry, and we believe it’s the key to our success.
