The Simple Simon’s Pizza® System
We are very proud of the business we’ve built and are confident that you will see the endless opportunities that await those who join us as franchise owners. Below is a more detailed synopsis of our working philosophy and how we separate ourselves in the pizza industry.
By purchasing a Simple Simon’s Pizza® franchise, you become your own small business owner. Doing that allows you to take advantage of all the resources, experience, and expertise that has propelled Simple Simon’s Pizza® to over 240 locations covering 8 states. We will help you successfully implement your Simple Simon’s Pizza® concept and give you all the tools to operate your own profitable Simple Simon’s Pizza franchise.
Our goal is to offer the public a superior product at a lower cost than our competitors, which creates a unique position in the market. As a high quality-low cost provider, we create unique, valued position in the minds of our customers.
Simple Simon’s Pizza® basically emphasizes Quality, Service, and Cleanliness. It is vital to provide the best product at the very best price everyday. This helps maintain cost controls and promotes a long term approach to operating a profitable Simple Simon’s Franchise.
Generally we target smaller rural or suburban niche markets, so that we can enter the community at an affordable cost and operate with low overhead. An affordable entry cost will allow operators to achieve solid “return on sales.” We do not focus solely on the expensive task of creating sales through marketing top-line increases. We are bottom-line focused through store operations. We believe marketing should be used to re-enforce the price-value relationship and to support the operational thrust.
You can own your own business without taking all the risks. Why not have the freedom of being self-employed while having the experience and resources of an established and successful organization with a brand that has been successful for over 20 years. That’s what owning your own business in the Simple Simon’s organization can give you. Of course, the level of success you achieve is based on your dedication and hard work.
Once you become a member of the Simple Simon’s organization, you will receive assistance in all important aspects of business operations both before opening a store and afterward.
