I am proud to say that my wife and I have been Straw Hat Pizza franchisees since 1985. During that time we've seen our business thrive and grow to become one of the most sucessful units in the restaurant chain. The marketing and support that we receive from the corporate office is a great benefit and well worth the monthly royalties.

Best thing about being a Straw Hat Pizza franchise is working with the Straw Hat headquarters team. It starts at the top from the beginning and is excellent all the way through. They set you up for success and help you utilize the tools that are given to you and then it is up to you to run it and maintain the standards. I love the concept and the quality of food.

My husband and I are proud to have pursued our second business venture in the past four years. With Straw Hat Pizza being our very first franchise, I must say it’s been smooth sailing. We are extremely pleased with the amount of support we receive from the corporate side of it which enables you to be in business for yourself but not by yourself.

Marketing is so important to maintain any successful business and it’s been such a relief to gain helpful insights and advice on what will benefit our Restaurant.

We definitely made the right decision with this franchise.

Straw Hat Pizza = A recipe for success
