What advantages are there in owning a Jet’s Pizza® Franchise?
The demand for pizza by American consumers continues today as never before. Our product line and efficient store design developed from our experience enhances your ability to capitalize on the demand. You gain the benefit of our experience from day one.
If I already own a pizzeria, why would I want to become a Jet’s Pizza® Franchisee?
You can reduce your cost of goods, share in cooperative advertising in some areas, and benefit from our name recognition. By joining us, you can take advantage of our volume purchasing power with vendors to lower your cost of ingredients. You can capitalize on our advertising system both in your locality, and in the greater area served by Jet’s Pizza®.
Can I convert an existing pizzeria into a Jet’s Pizza®?
Yes, but we require all new equipment and the pizzeria will need to be redone to look exactly like a Jet’s Pizza®.
What type of return can I expect on my investment?
The ROI is different for each pizzeria depending on how well the franchisee manages the business by driving sales volumes up and keeping operating costs low. We encourage the prospective franchisee to investigate this on their own by contacting current franchisee’s with questions about marketing, finances, sales volumes, operations, etc.
Do you allow partnerships if I don’t meet the financial requirements alone?
Yes. Each partner must submit his or her own Application and Financial Information Sheet.
Does Jet’s Pizza require its franchises to be owner-operated?
Yes. Daily participation by an owner, spouse or family member is highly recommended and will generally produce better financial performance for a franchise. Our standard franchise agreement requires that the owner or a designated manager with part ownership operate the franchise.
How do I choose a location and will Jet’s Pizza® help in site selection?
The ideal site is a high traffic in-line strip shopping center with a “draw” located in the center (i.e. avideo store, or a high draw plaza). Many prospective franchisees already know of such a location.If you do not have a location in mind, you can use our experience and contacts to assist you in selecting a site. We will schedule a time for site selection to review proposed sites to make sure they meet our standards.
What training will I receive?
You and your designated manager will be trained in one of our existing stores in all essential daily operations, including standard business procedures, use and maintenance of equipment, and quality control. You will learn how to make our products to our quality standards. A minimum of 200 hours per person are required to complete training.
Where do I purchase equipment and supplies?
We have developed a network of suppliers for our equipment and other items. These approved suppliers can provide you with all items that meet our specifications and standards.
How long will it take to open a franchise?
The time necessary to open a franchise varies from location to location depending on the local health department and city permitting. Once a lease is signed, it takes approximately 90 to 120 days.
