Mountain Mike’s Pizza is developing rapidly throughout Texas with nine Dallas-Ft Worth-area locations under development.
The Lone Star State growth plan is being fueled by multi-unit development deals. Hector Haget and Khris Tate of Jefes Pizza, LLC, multi-unit Jersey Mike’s franchisees, will open three restaurants as will Steve Zeigler, who is also a multi-unit Jersey Mike’s franchisee, and brothers Robby and Varinder Basati. Robby is Mountain Mike’s largest franchisee in California.
It’s an attractive time to join the Mountain Mike’s Pizza franchise family in Texas, which is expected to be the brand’s second-largest market after California.
“The sky’s the limit for passionate entrepreneurs and successful multi-brand franchise operators like Haget, Zeigler and the Basati brothers, who see the benefits of partnering with one of the nation’s leading family-friendly pizza concepts, especially as we continue to be warmly welcomed into new communities throughout the West where our franchisees are experiencing record-breaking success,” said Jim Metevier, President and Chief Operating Officer at Mountain Mike’s Pizza. “As the excitement for Mountain Mike’s mouth watering pizzas and family-friendly environment continues to reach new heights, our success is being fueled by some of the most reputable and talented franchisees in the business.”
The time is right for franchisees seeking a successful, growing and sought-after pizza concept. Mountain Mike’s Pizza ended 2021 by surpassing $250 million in total system sales. Unit economics were strong with store sales growth at 15% and total sales growth at 24% over 2020.
Our team opened 18 new restaurants and signed franchise agreements for 60 more which are all in various stages of development. By the end of 2022, we expect to open a total of 30 new restaurants and move closer to our goal of having 400+ locations by the end of 2025.
“We are thrilled to accelerate the introduction of Mountain Mike’s to communities throughout Texas where we’ve received tremendous interest from both potential franchise partners and residents who would love a Mountain Mike’s in their hometown,” said Chris Britt and Ed St. Geme, the Co-CEOs/Owners of Mountain Mike’s Pizza. “We are looking forward to growing our franchise family in Texas where opportunities abound!”
