Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza Franchise Opportunities

Speed and experience are two features that restaurant guests are looking for today. A Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza franchise perfectly meets the demand of today’s consumers for freshness of ingredients, speed of preparation, consistent and outstanding quality, and a great dining experience.

Why Franchise With Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza?

The franchise caters to both a lunch crowd that has the “need-for-speed” as well as guests that desire a more leisurely dining experience, all while enjoying a glass or two of beer or wine with dinner. 
Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza caters to families so they can enjoy a wide variety of options of amazing food they all love and can be in and out of the restaurant quickly or slow it down and enjoy their time together. Millennials, the increasing and very important group of consumers, expect an exceptional experience when they dine out and prefer food that has artisanal roots, intense flavors and bold textures. This segment consistently rates the product taste, quality and value an enthusiastic “two-thumbs-up.”

Fast-Casual Restaurant Franchise

This franchise is a fast-casual franchise concept that serves authentic, artisan, wood-fired pizza. Their proprietary dough is made fresh every day, they roast their own meats in the oak wood-fired ovens, they even chop their own fresh vegetables. In fact, their food is so fresh they don’t even have a freezer! From the time a guest walks into the restaurant, they are immersed in the Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza experience supported by the pleasant aroma of oak burning in the oven. Right away, guests see an open plan kitchen and are greeted by team members that interact with them in a way that makes the guest know they are valued.
Their pizzas and other menu items are baked using 100% oak wood-fired cooking: There are no microwaves or no cheap grills. They use oak wood that has dried 12 months. Aged wood has a smoky flavor a gas just can’t copy. 
The demand for pizza is not slowing down anytime soon. Research reports that 83% of consumers eat pizza at least once a month, 43% at least once a week, and 14% every day! This type of consistent behavior allows you to build loyalty with your guests, so they return again and again. It’s a great time to be in the pizza business. 
In addition to the traditional Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza restaurant concept, the company is able to offer the NEW Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza & Taproom. The taproom concept is an optional feature for those franchisees who wish to expand their craft beer offering. A Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza & Taproom restaurant is typically around 3,000 – 3,500 square feet and has between 25-50 beers on the wall. 
This is great for guests who want to sample beers, or have a pint or two of their favorites, along with amazing wood-fired pizza. We all know pizza and beer are a match made in heaven!
