The first location was opened next to the Standford University campus. With the Mountain Mike's Pizza franchise, they strive to make “Pizza the way it oughta be” and want to be a contributor to any community where the franchise resides.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
