The iconic pizza franchise is ready for a nationwide expansion
There’s no better food to share with your loved ones than pizza. According to, on average, Americans eat about 46 slices of pizza each year – so it makes sense to bring everyone together for a scratch-made pizza without the effort, right?

This is where Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake pizza franchise outshines the competition. For over 40 years, our iconic brand has found success by focusing on families just as much as pizza. See, with our thriving take-and-bake pizza franchise, we’re all about capturing the moments. At Papa Murphy’s, we understand the only thing that’s better than our guests eating one of our made-to-order, fresh pizzas is enjoying the occasion with the special people in their lives. As a result, we give our guests an experience that truly tastes better together.

“There are many things that make Papa Murphy’s unique, however, our No. 1 differentiator is that we are different on purpose,” says Kim McBee, Senior Vice President of of Guest Experience and Brand Marketing at Papa Murphy’s. “It is truly a benefit to take our pizza home and bake it. We make our dough from scratch, chop high-quality vegetables, butcher quality meat, and shred fresh mozzarella cheese daily. The best part is creating the perfect pizza for our guests who then take it home to bake at their convenience for their loved ones. There’s nothing better than spending quality time with your loved ones over a slice of America’s favorite comfort food: pizza.”

Since our humble beginnings of two local take-and-bake pizza companies merging, Papa Murphy’s has grown to more than 1,200 locations in the United State, Canada and UAE. How did we do it? By delivering high-quality food mixed with excellent customer service and very affordable prices. The ingredients to our business model have proven successful, as our loyal guests constantly rate us No. 1 in consumer surveys.

Although we take pride in selling high-quality food, we know our tasty pizzas are even better when shared with the people you love most. Moreover, we understand the 88 percent of families who would like to increase the time spent with their family at the dinner table rather than time preparing the meal. This is why Papa Murphy’s owns the take-and-bake pizza segment. Our loyal guests know that they come to any of our more than 1,200 locations and get a customized meal that’s fast, fresh, affordable and bake it at home – when they want it.

What’s the best part? Our bake-at-home pizza franchise is positioned for growth in an industry that is worth $46 billion and is poised to continue growing. As we expand our national footprint across the country, we want to share our success with you. Whether you are a first-time entrepreneur, a fanatical fan of our tasty pizza, or a multi-unit operator looking to diversify your business, Papa Murphy’s is a wise investment for you.

When it comes to take-and-bake pizza, there is no name that rings louder than Papa Murphy’s. As the largest take-and-bake pizza chain in America, we have plenty of room for growth as the demand for pizza, especially take-and-bake pizza, continues to skyrocket. According to PMQ Pizza Magazine, the U.S. pizza market has grown into a $46 billion industry and is estimated to grow 10% in the next five years.

Moreover, Americans love pizza so much that they spend $33 billion in QSR pizza restaurants annually – and takeout has the largest share of spending at $15 billion each year, per data collection company Statista. At Papa Murphy’s, we have a tried-and-true product that our guests constantly rate No. 1 as well as the loyal following to match – all we’re missing is you. As a Papa Murphy’s franchise owner, you’ll quickly come to understand why our fresh pizza franchise is a best-bet investment.

How so? Not only is the market booming, but our business model is easy to run and simple to scale. Unlike many of our competitors, guests come into our stores to pick up their made-to-order pizza and then they take it home to bake it. Because of this, our take-and-bake pizza model requires a small footprint – we do not require any ovens or dine-in. Ultimately, this not only allows for a lower cost of entry but also reduced labor costs as we only have one daypart: dinner. Additionally, our streamlined business model allows our franchise owners to focus on building guest relationships and creating the best pizza ever.

From the moment you sign your Papa Murphy’s franchise agreement, you will never be alone in business. Many of our franchise owners are loyal guests who fell in love with our pizza, while we have also helped many first-time entrepreneurs bring their dreams of business ownership to fruition. No matter what your background is, all Papa Murphy’s franchise owners share common traits: a desire to build relationships within their stores and community, as well as a passion for pizza and staying engaged in the day-to-day operations of his or her business.

Whether you have industry experience or not, Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake pizza franchise is committed to helping our owners succeed in business. This is why we treat our franchise owners like family. We understand that if they are not successful, neither are we. Once a franchise owner has joined our team, they will undergo our New Owner Training Program, which will help them on their path to success as a franchise owner.

This comprehensive program starts with four to five weeks of operations training, and finally, one week of foundation class. This includes everything from customer service, to how to prep the product, to learning how to work the POS system, to hiring and management of employees, to learning how to effectively market your store and more.

“Before I was a franchise owner, I actually started out as a guest for many years, and then I became an employee of Papa Murphy’s International,” says Micki Waters, co-owner of eight Papa Murphy’s franchise restaurants in Eugene, Oregon. “Every time I meet someone who knows I operate Papa Murphy’s I’m always told about how much they love our pizza. So, when you’re a part of a brand that people love and you love the brand, you just can’t help but want to be a part of it and continue being a part of it.”
