Pizza is one of the most popular fast-food options. Millions of Americans eat it at least once a week. A concept to consider is Pizza 9. Founder and CEO Hasan "Hass" Aslami established the brand in 2008. Aslmami spent most of his career operating restaurants and developed a love for the pizza business and franchising. After spending time living in Chicago, Hass and his business partner and Pizza 9 President Behrad "Rod" Etemadi brought a Chicago Style Pizza concept to the Land of Enchantment. Together, they opened the first Pizza 9 restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The following year, they sold their first franchise and have continued selling Pizza 9 Franchises with locations now open across New Mexico. Franchisees benefit from a simple business model and feel-good, in-demand product. In terms of the initial investment, it ranges between $74,080 - $398,980, which includes a one-time initial franchise fee of $18,500. To incentivize veteran ownership, military personnel are given a discount of $8,500 off the initial franchisee fee.
