Looking for a better house, He found a better pizza

Why Jets?

In 1978, Jet’s Pizza® founder Eugene Jetts was about to buy a new home. But on the way there, his passion for pizza took over. Instead, he signed a lease on a space that would become the first Jet’s location. Along with his brother and partner John, they opened the doors to Jett’s Party Shoppe & Pizzeria in Sterling Heights, MI. The pizza world would never be the same. They were about to make deep dish history by offering a truly better pizza.

All of our pizzas are made with only the freshest ingredients, premium mozzarella, hand pressed dough made fresh everyday & baked in steel pans for a crispy cheesy to the edge crunch.  

That first location has grown to hundreds of locations in 19 states. One thing that will never change is their commitment to quality ingredients.

When You Join With Jets,
You Are Part of The Family.

IT ALL STARTS WITH TRAINING – The initial training program begins with a one-day orientation at the corporate office, followed by full-time, hands-on, on-the-job training at one or more restaurants operated by Jet’s®, and an affiliate, or another franchisee. Training is conducted six days a week for 4-6 weeks, totaling 200-300 hours. Currently, all training will be conducted at one of our affiliate locations in Michigan. A longer training period can be elected at your option without additional cost. We reserve the right, at your cost, to require additional training until you meet our standards for the operation of a franchise.

WE CRANK IT UP WITH OPENING ASSISTANCE – Our personnel will direct and assist you in many of the details of opening your pizzeria. We will guide you through our project management process from start to finish. This includes help with site selection, ordering equipment, a point of sale system, signage, etc. You will meet and work closely with our advertising department to execute your marketing plan. We will help you schedule and train employees. We will be on-site during your Grand Opening to help you with as many other elements that will be necessary for you to open your pizzeria in an orderly fashion.

WE CONTINUE TO HAVE YOUR BACK – Our personnel remains available to you to help resolve any operation problems which may develop during the day-to-day operation of your pizzeria. Since the amount of additional support that a franchise requires varies from location to location, Jet’s® reserves the right to charge a set per diem rate for providing additional support, and to be reimbursed for costs incurred.

You've Got This!

We are here to help. Training, opening assistance, continuing assistance

Real Estate –

Each new restaurant location is carefully determined between the franchisee, the Jet’s Pizza® Headquarters Team, and our preferred real-estate brokers who specialize in restaurant placement. The franchisee is ultimately responsible for selecting and securing a site, negotiating a lease, and building out the restaurant. With that being said, our franchise and real-estate development team will be available to support and guide you every step of the way. 

Construction –

Jet’s Pizza® takes a hands-on approach during the construction process for every franchisee. Our vast network of approved vendors, architects, and general contractors is essential to the success of the development process. 

Training –

Many brands charge training fees, we don’t. Our 2-week training program covers all the necessary skills needed in becoming a successful business owner. Two weeks of training is spent at one of our restaurants. Here you will learn about Inventory, Scheduling, Team Development, and how to make a Jet’s Pizza. The other two weeks are spent in a classroom, where we train our franchisee on the Jet’s Pizza® Culture (VIBE!), Marketing, Recruiting, and Financial Management of the Business. 

Operations –

Jet’s Pizza® franchise business consultants (FBC’s) assist franchisees in grand openings, staff training, and ensure the store is fully prepared and ready for their first customer. Our FBC’s call and visit restaurants on a regular basis to conduct operations excellence evaluations (OEE’s), answer any questions and give support to managers and/or crew members. 

Purchasing and Distribution –

Jet’s Pizza® franchisees benefit from our national purchasing power and our partnerships with the restaurant industry’s leading distribution network. This ensures a nationwide distribution of delivery consistency and quality products. 

Marketing –

The Jet’s Pizza® marketing team supports every franchise with effective and innovative marketing initiatives, at the local and national levels. This assistance is provided to help you with your grand opening plans and social media presence, along with the implementation of new product launches. An in-house public relations team keeps Jet’s Pizza® top-of-mind, with local and national media. 

Financing –

While Jet’s Pizza® does not offer financing, we have relationships with a Network of Lenders. These lenders work with you in securing the necessary loan you’ll need to build your Jet’s Pizza® restaurant. We are also on the SBA Franchise Registry, which provides a more streamlined application process for you. 

Jet's® VS.
The Competition

“Our brand is very unique. For 40 years, we have aimed for franchisee success rather than volume of stores. At Jets, you will be treated like family. Jets is big enough that your profit potential as an owner is nearly unlimited, but small enough that it will feel like working with a family. The difference between corporate pizza chains and Jets is personal connection to the leadership who founded the company. We have literally been where you are and we know how to make you successful.”
Jim Galloway, VP of Franchise Sales
