Pizza Factory inks deal for Washington

Pizza Factory has inked a deal for a location in Washington. The restaurant, whose location has yet to be announced, will be an Express model, and the 12th location in the state.

Behind the deal are Jatin Patel and Jyoti Bhatta, new franchisees to the brand. The pair hope to open their location by summer.

“Pizza Factory has been a part of our lives for years,” Patel said in the press release. “We’ve bonded over our love for the pizza in the past, and when we were looking for investment opportunities in the restaurant industry, Pizza Factory was the clear choice. Not only is the food delicious, but the corporate support has been incredible.”

“As newcomers to franchising, Jatin and I especially value the open line of communication between corporate and the franchisees, and we’re happy to be investing in a proven concept lead by an all-star team,” Bhatta said in the release.

Pizza Factory has both a fast-casual model and an Express version.

“After a few decades in business, we know exactly what our franchisees need to succeed,” MJ Riva, CEO of Pizza Factory, said in the release. “A significant portion of our model’s growth has been achieved through our strong bonds with our franchisees, and we’re thrilled that this has hit home with Jatin and Jyoti. Our recipe for success includes our delicious food, dedicated franchisees and Awesome model, and we can’t wait for our newest franchisees to experience this success firsthand with their location.”

Pizza Factory operates in more than 100 hometowns.
