Mountain Mike's pizza franchise is growing

We’ve been one of the best-kept secrets in the pizza franchise industry.

Now we’re opening new territories.

For four decades, Mountain Mike’s has quietly been building one of the largest regional pizza franchises in the United States. Now we’re ready to make some noise.

Our success has been built on simple ingredients: Great food, great experiences for families, strong community ties – especially with local sports teams — and franchisee satisfaction. We have grown organically. Our brand includes dozens of multi-unit franchisees who continue to invest in new restaurants, buoyed by the success they have enjoyed with the brand.

“The most satisfying thing about being a Mountain Mike’s Pizza franchise owner is the limitless ability to grow my business and brand locally,” says Luis Seita, who owns three Mountain Mike’s locations in Northern California. “Pizza is a community food and when you have a good product and a savvy business model, business is good.”

Now, we’re building on the brand’s success by launching new initiatives to power growth into the future. One of those initiatives: Partnering with new franchisees to bring Mountain Mike’s to Southern California as well as Utah, Nevada and Oregon.

Mountain Mike’s Pizza franchise has the operational experience, the franchising expertise and the quality product that together make for a winning combination. We want seasoned franchisees and development partners who are passionate about capitalizing on the booming $45 billion pizza industry.

Why we're better than

the competition

While other pizza franchises concentrate on carryout and delivery, Mountain Mike’s captures roughly a third of our sales from something you don’t see as much anymore: dine-in.

The families who grew up with us in the Bay Area and other parts of Northern California are now bringing their families in to recapture those experiences. The grown-ups can watch the game on a big-screen with a glass of beer or wine while the kids play in the game room. Mountain Mike’s has so much wide-open territory in L.A. and the rest of Southern California, we’re excited about the opportunity to introduce our brand to a whole new generation of loyal fans.
