Background

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE 1000 DEGREES PIZZERIA FRANCHISE AS MY NEXT BUSINESS VENTURE?

A) Dough: Our authentic Neapolitan dough recipe dating back over 100 years from the Campania region of Italy (Naples). Our authentic Neapolitan dough is made fresh daily using imported "tipo 00" flour, and is mixed using an authentic "fork-style" mixer. We do not use the "dough hook" style traditional mixer used in most corner pizzerias across the country. Our "fork-style" mixer is pivotal to the end product. A crispy, airy, light-on-the-belly crust, that is thin and extremely tasty. Our dough is made fresh daily in each of our restaurants, and hand tossed giving us the best tasting authentic Neapolitan pizza anywhere.

B) Sauces: Our delicious San-Marzano and Cherry tomato based sauces will be the best your customers have ever tasted. We also offer a wide range of other delicious sauces, including Spicy Sriracha Marinara, Blue-cheese buffalo, pesto, and smokey bourbon barbecue to name a few.

C) Oven: Part of operating in a Quick Serve or Fast-Casual environment is having a process that works. We use a hand-made, proprietary oven that cooks our pizzas to perfection in just about 2 minutes. Unlike "west-coast" pizza concepts, we know pizza and our concept was developed in the pizza capital of the United States. We do not use a dough press to turn our pizza into a fajita with a quick sear to compensate for a substandard cooking process. Our hand tossed pizzas cook for just about 120 seconds and are back to the customer just minutes after placing their order.

Once you have completed our franchisee training program yourself and your staff will seem like expert "Pizzaiolos" before you open your doors for business!

1. Our customers say "you had us at first bite"! Once you have tasted our Neapolitan Pizza and witnessed our total experience you will agree. Our stores have a "cult-like" following of pizza connoisseurs who understand the 1000 Degrees Pizzeria difference after sampling our pizzas.

3. Support - Our founder and CEO has franchise experience and expertise including launching another successful 20+ store food franchise. Our operations and marketing teams will guide you through everything necessary to give you the greatest opportunity to succeed beyond your expectations!
