(Ambrosio’s note: Over the next few days, I will be discussing the Item 19 financial performance representations of 10 up-and-coming pizza franchises that you’ve probably never heard of.
Unlike Papa John’s, Papa Murphy’s, Marco’s Pizza, and Hungry Howie’s (all of which I’ve featured previously on FDD Talk), these franchises are not yet household names. But I do think they are worth examining because they can provide us with helpful clues on the profit potential of pizza franchises in general.
Please stay tuned for my industry-level bottom line analysis to be published at the end of this series.)
