Athens, GA (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Your Pie, the originator of the quick-serve, brick-oven, customized personal pizza category, is growing again.
The opening of a second Your Pie in Jacksonville, Fla., is the 18th in the company’s brief history of franchising. Both of the Jacksonville stores are operated by franchisees Mike and Dea Sims.
No other down-the-line pizza brand in the United States has grown more steadily or has opened as many stores. Your Pie remains committed to becoming the first down-the-line pizza purveyor to reach 100 operating franchise locations. With a powerful combination of company assets that includes Drew French, who conceived the concept of down-the-line pizza, a franchise-development team that ranks with the best in the industry and a solidified relationship with Georgia Oak Partners, the brand has established a formula for success to achieve and exceed goals for growth.
“Your Pie has a proven model and a superior product in the customizable pizza segment,” Your Pie Chairman of the Board David Barr said. “Our hand-tossed dough and brick oven set us apart from the other brands looking to capitalize on Your Pie’s concept, and we are prepared to augment our presence in the Southeast and beyond.
“We offer an unprecedented, ground-floor opportunity for investors and the shrewd multi-unit operator. There is a lot of noise in this segment, but Your Pie is the originator in this space. Those who have bothered to thoroughly investigate the down-the-line opportunities available have ended their search with Your Pie. Without question, as a brand, we believe the best is yet to come,” Barr said.
Your Pie’s brick-oven style pizza taste is the difference-maker. That quick adoption by a community, as demonstrated in Jacksonville, demonstrates the stickiness of the brand.
“We are excited to open our second location in Jacksonville and reach a broader section of the Jacksonville community,” Your Pie Founder Drew French said. “We love our pizza, and couldn’t be happier to be able to share it with even more people in the market.”
Your Pie aims to reach 100 locations in the U.S. by the end of 2015. The brand will add locations in Atlanta, Charlotte, Tampa, Nashville, Charleston, Birmingham, and Augusta. Although the brand is looking for partners to join the Your Pie family in the Southeast, they also boast a model to support locations in other areas of the country.
