get the skinny
America has a real passion for pizza. Since the first pizzeria opened here in New York City in 1903, pizza has grown to the most popular food in America. An incredible 93% OF AMERICANS gladly admit they eat pizza at least once a month.
Our passion for pizza is staggering. The National Restaurant Association (NRA) indicates that pizza sales represent almost $38 BILLION IN AMERICA — over $100 BILLION worldwide. Where is our love for pizza heading? The trending is actually very clear.
The research firm Technomic® in their most recent "Pizza Consumer Trend Report" found that 41% OF AMERICANS say they would be happy to pay for healthier ingredients including ORGANIC TOPPINGS AND CRUSTS, as well as all-natural LOCALLY SOURCED ingredients.
What makes it SKINNYPIZZA®? We have spent years creating a thin pizza crust that has great taste and compliments any topping. At the same time, we have carefully crafted our entire menu for those that are health and environmentally conscious – as well as those that simply love great tasting pizza, pasta, salads and soups.
OUR PIZZA CRUST is made with NO PRESERVATIVES or ADDITIVES. That alone is something that is incredibly rare, actually reserved to the top 1% of pizzerias. PIZZA SAUCE is made with 100% USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC tomatoes.
But the SKINNYPIZZA® concept does not end there. Along with the best tasting pizza you will ever eat, we have carefully developed our menu to complement our healthy approach to great Italian fast-casual dining.
Ideal SKINNPIZZA® franchise candidates should be like-minded, have a proven professional track record and the commitment to spend 100% of their focus on day-to-day restaurant operations. Alternatively, franchise owners may designate an approved OPERATING PRINCIPAL with QSR, fast-casual and/or general restaurant management experience.
The typical SKINNYPIZZA® requires a total initial investment of $367,000 to $691,000 all-in per location. You and your partners should have a minimum total liquidity (available capital) of $500,000 for each restaurant you wish to develop.
