Restaurant & Institutions Magazine has named Papa Murphy’s the best pizza chain for seven years in a row.

That’s because their pizza is not only delicious but affordable. And it’s great to own because unlike other pizza chains, Papa Murphy’s franchises have limited hours and smaller store footprints. This means that you can own a Papa Murphy’s without having a million dollars in the bank. The brand also has a great fan base: the aforementioned award was voted on by consumers.

Since it’s easier to own than a regular restaurant franchise, Papa Murphy’s franchisers do not insist that you have franchising experience to own one. That’s even better news for those of you that thought owning your own restaurant was unattainable!
