Papa Murphy's Franchise
Papa Murphy’s franchises create made-from-scratch pizza for baking at home with fresh ingredients and handmade everything.
About Papa Murphy's
Even though it’s the fifth-largest pizza chain in the U.S., Papa Murphy’s does pizza in a way that’s totally different than most competitors. By focusing both on our guest experience and quality of our product, Papa Murphy’s has become the expert in the rising take-and-bake pizza segment. This franchise system is a compelling business opportunity for entrepreneurs who are passionate about their community, bringing families together and most of all — pizza. While the majority of brands in the $46 billion pizza industry have the same business model, Papa Murphy’s is different on purpose. For starters, we don’t bake our pizzas — our guests do that. Instead, we help them create the perfect pizza for them. Unlike our competitors, we prepare all of our ingredients fresh, in-house daily. This includes hand-sliced high-quality veggies, freshly grated mozzarella cheese, butcher quality meat, and making our dough from scratch. The result is a pizza experience that cannot be matched anywhere else.

Potential franchisees must meet the minimum liquid capital and net worth requirements, in addition to having a credit score of at least 650 and a solid financial history. The more previous experience candidates have as entrepreneurs or franchisees, the more likely it is for their application to be approved. At minimum, interested individuals should have business ownership experience.
Papa Murphy’s requires full-time management of its locations, so it should be the sole focus of potential franchisees. On a personal level, the brand is looking for friendly owners who love people and pizza and feel a deep commitment to making incredible pizza every time. No prior food preparation experience is required, however.
