Slice House by Tony Gemignani is launching its first franchise program. Since opening its original location in 2010, alongside Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in San Francisco, Slice House has served slices of Gemignani’s New York-, Sicilian-, Grandma-, Detroit- and California-style pizza in a fast casual setting.
“I grew up with a love of food and the way it can bring people together,” Gemignani said in a company press release. “Transitioning Slice House to a franchise opportunity is yet another way I get to share my passion and impart my respect for the craft of pizza making. We look forward to partnering with like-minded entrepreneurs who are equally passionate about pizza and people to spread Slice House nationwide.”
A 13-time World Pizza Champion, four-time Guinness Book of World Record Holder, winner of “The Food Network Challenge,” founder of the “World Pizza Champions” and Master Instructor of the International School of Pizza, Gemignani leads Slice House with partners George Karpaty, Trevor Hewitt and Bill Ginsburg.
Recently named the No. 1 Emerging Brand in Pizza Marketplace’s Top 100 Movers & Shakers 2023, Slice House is offering franchisees the opportunity to join a team with over 30 years of experience led by a celebrity chef as well as access to authentic regional recipes and a flexible revenue stream from brick-and-mortar locations to stadium kiosks with fast casual, sit-down, take-out or third-party delivery services, Gemignani said in the release. The chain has 34 units with 27 in stadiums and arenas throughout California and Nevada.
“At Slice House, we know our franchise owners’ growth is growth for the brand, so we make sure our owners understand that you’re never alone when you invest with Slice House,” Karpaty said in the release. “With the support you receive from the moment you connect with our franchise team and a menu straight from the mind of pizza master Tony Gemignani, we’re prepared to help you bring the best flavors of the world, old and the new, to your local area.”
