Snappy Tomato Pizza Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Doing well in business is a combination of hard work and luck. This rings true for the Snappy Tomato Pizza franchise. The brand was established after the founder won a bet at a local horse racing track. The horse's name was Snappy Tomato. After Snappy Tomato won the race, the man used his winnings to open his pizzeria, which he named in honor of the victorious horse. Since its inception, the pizza franchise has expanded to more than 50 locations across several states (Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and New Mexico). The brand's dough is made fresh each morning. The same is true for its cheese—always fresh, never frozen - and vine-ripened tomatoes, which are picked fresh, packed, and canned to make the sauce within six hours.
At the Snappy Tomato franchise, franchise owners have two proven franchise models: A full sit-down restaurant model with an optional buffet that also offers delivery and carry out; and a delivery/carryout model that emphasizes high volume and quick service. To stay ahead of the curve, the Snappy Tomato offers signature pizzas that are all branded, market tested, and deliver exceptional taste and value. Examples of the brand's signature pizzas are The Beast, The Junior Beast, and The Ranch specialty pizza. Franchisees have access to wide open markets for a single store or multiple locations. Franchise owners can expect an all-in investment to range from 115,500 - $256,000, which includes an initial franchise fee of $14,000. Ideal candidates are business-oriented, passionate about customer service, and have leadership and communication skills.

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.
