Pizza may have been originally created in Italy, but it was perfected in America. Whether deep dish or thin crust, pizza franchises serve Americans’ huge hunger for this cheesy, saucy, doughy wonder.
Can I get a slice?
There are different pizza franchise models, including eat in, carry out and delivery, with some places offering a combination of those forms of service.
A relatively inexpensive food, pizza is perfect in bad economies as well as good, making it among the most stable segments of the food industry, resistant to year- or even decade-long trends.
Biggest slice of the pie
- A staggering 93 percent of Americans eat pizza at least once a month.
- Pizza places account for 17 percent of all restaurants in the U.S.
