Franchisee Spotlight

From learning more to opening your doors in as few as 3 months

Whether you’re a first-time or seasoned entrepreneur, we make franchising simple.

The Young Entrepreneurs

Aaron & Chelsey

Farmington, Arkansas

Aaron and Chelsey dreamed about opening a pizza franchise together since they were in college, but assumed it would take decades to save up enough to open their own place. Just a few years later, they learned they’d be able to open their own Simple Simon’s Pizza® without having tons of cash in the bank. The low upfront cost made business ownership attainable, and the guidance and support Aaron and Chelsey got from Simple Simon’s Pizza® set these young entrepreneurs up for success.

Aaron

The best part of their story is the family atmosphere with Corporate. I think that's a huge thing they've got going. They don't realize how much it means to be able to call them and know that they've got your back.

Chelsey

With other things, the franchise fee for a lot of other places is sky-high. With Simple Simon's it's more something that, hey, I can do this.

The Food Industry Professional

Sean

Multi-unit owner

Sean spent decades working in franchise operations and management when he decided it was time to use his wealth of industry experience to go out on his own. Sean looked for a concept that would provide a solid return on his investment and an organization that he could feel proud to be a part of. Simple Simon’s Pizza® stood out for its affordability, longevity, and loyal culture. Sean has recently acquired his sixth Simple Simon’s Pizza® location and plans to continue expanding over the coming years.

Sean

I think if you're going to go be a Pizza Hut or a Domino's, you're just going to be a number. You're just going to be one of those franchisees. But I think that there's a lot of trust and loyalty in Simple Simon's throughout the entire organization.
