Pizza is big. Really big. (Really tasty, too!)

It’s also a large segment of the food franchise industry in the US.

The US pizza market is a mature, developed market, and it’s also pretty darn competitive.

Franchised pizza chains account for around 60% of the market. It’s estimated that there are over 150 well known pizza franchises in operation plus an unknown number of local and regional pizza franchises.
