Do I have to work in my restaurant?
If you are an individual owner, we encourage you to manage your store personally but do not require that you do. If you choose not to manage your store, you must appoint a general manager, to assume personal responsibility to manage the store’s day-to-day operations. Your general manager must be a full-time, bilingual employee who either lives in the neighborhood where your store will be located or agrees to move into the neighborhood and become active in the community.

What type of return can I expect to make on my investment?
Federal Trade Commission rules on franchising do not permit employees of Pizza Patrón, Inc. to provide any information regarding revenues, costs, or profits. However, our Federal Disclosure Document (FDD) contains actual store revenue numbers.

We encourage all of our prospective franchisees to conduct significant due diligence during the discovery process and contact existing franchisees with questions on marketing, finances, sales volumes, operations, etc. The amount of profit or loss depends in large part on the ability of the franchisee to manage the business, drive sales volume and control operating costs.

Can you send me a FDD for my review?
Yes, here is how the process works:
  • You complete the Franchise Inquiry form and submit it to us.
  • After your initial inquiry and subsequent follow-up from our team, you will be asked to complete the Pizza Patrón application and submit it to the Pizza Patrón business development team.
  • We will evaluate your qualifications and financial ability to successfully open and operate a Pizza Patrón restaurant.
  • If you are approved for the next step in the process, we will match your interests with our available opportunities and you will then be issued a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
  • Once you have completed your initial review of the FDD, we will schedule a personal, face-to-face meeting.
Does Pizza Patrón select the site where I’ll build my restaurant?
No, you will select the site, but a representative of Pizza Patrón is required to approve each location.

What markets are available for single-unit or multi-unit development?
This factor changes frequently so please contact the Pizza Patrón Business Development Team for the most current information.

What kind of support can I expect from Pizza Patrón on the build-out of my restaurant?
After a site has been approved, the Franchise Agreement is executed which initiates a series of events that culminate with the opening of a new Pizza Patrón restaurant. From the day we begin working together, through store construction, opening and ongoing operations our team is here to support your growth.
