Hasan Aslami combined his sales and marketing skills with his restaurant management experience to develop the Pizza 9 brand. Utilizing fresh ingredients and dough made daily, Pizza 9 soon gained a following of hungry customers.

Aslami started Pizza 9 in 2008. He began franchising the concept in 2009. Each Pizza 9 location offers dine-in, carry-out, and delivery options with several franchise outlets nationwide. The Pizza 9 menu carries pizza rolls, calzones, soups, salads, spaghetti, ravioli, desserts, and of course, lots of pizza. 

Why You May Want to Start a Pizza 9 Franchise

Pizza 9 seeks quality individuals from different states to franchise a new location. If you are customer-focused, detail-oriented, demonstrate outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, have proven management work experience, and possess leadership abilities with great attention to detail, you may be the right candidate for this position.

Opening a Pizza 9 franchise may offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that could struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive food service industry.

What Might Make a Pizza 9 Franchise a Good Choice?

From the philosophy of providing high-quality services based on consistency, Pizza 9 encourages community spirit and involvement with local fundraising opportunities. New franchisee duties include overseeing day-to-day operations and events at your location, hiring and leading staff, community outreach, and more. A typical Pizza 9 franchise agreement runs for ten years. Franchisees will be allowed to renew their agreement if they meet the company requirements.

To be part of the Pizza 9 team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising fees and royalty fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements. 

How To Open a Pizza 9 Franchise

If awarded a franchise, franchisees receive a great deal of support from the Pizza 9 brand throughout the franchising process. In addition to pre-opening training, Pizza 9 franchisees receive support through an operations manual, site selection assistance, secret Pizza 9 recipes, and brand-cohesive advertising. Franchisees may also receive hands-on training and continued support after their franchise location has opened, including regular meetings and workshops to grow each Pizza 9 location. 

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Pizza 9 franchising team questions.

Also, make sure you take the time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a Pizza 9 franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much of it may not allow for the most possible brand growth.

It may be a good idea to speak with an attorney or financial advisor to ensure that you have the necessary financial resources to own and operate a Pizza 9 franchise.
