When you own a franchise, coming together with franchisees with a similar mindset is essential. Not only does it speed up the flow of good ideas and not-yet-institutionalized best practices but it’s a fantastic way to gain insight and inspiration with your peer group.

Each year, Mountain Mike’s Pizza hosts a franchise convention which provides the opportunity to share successes, build relationships and develop forward-thinking strategies, and take a broad look at issues and opportunities. We call it our “family reunion.”

The 2022 Franchise Convention was held October 16-17 in beautiful San Diego, CA. There were incredible revelations throughout this particular convention, and we thought we’d share some key takeaways!

A Culture of Winning

If one aspect stood out among the rest, it was the amazingly upbeat, positive energy that pulsed throughout the franchisee convention. At every turn, we saw smiling Mountain Mike’s owners offering advice and sharing individual success stories with undying positivity.  Franchisees reported experiencing record-breaking average unit volumes post-pandemic.

Room for Growth

Mountain Mike’s has laid the foundation for both new and existing franchisee expansions. We have locations open or under development in CA, OR, UT, ID, NV, AZ, CO, and TX. We are proud of the headway our franchisees are making developing existing markets and penetrating new ones.

Award-Winning Growth and National Recognition

According to the Nation’s Restaurant News Top 500 Report, Mountain Mike’s had the fastest growth in average unit volume (AUV) of the country’s top 30 pizza chains last year. We could not have achieved this level of expansion without our franchisees, and we look forward to branching out even further, potentially to every corner of the USA!

Mountain Mikes is Rated as the Lowest Risk Investment

We were thrilled to announce to our franchisees that Mountain Mike’s received a FUND Score of 915, up 30 points from the previous year! This jump puts us in the top 1% of all franchised systems.

As the highest score among all food brands evaluated, Mountain Mike’s is the lowest-risk investment, meaning that our franchisees are more likely to repay their loans than other franchise systems. This ensures franchisees are likely to receive expansion and start-up capital at favorable rates as cost of money increases.
