Why consider an Armando's Pizza franchise? Armando's has been in the pizza business since 1967. During that time, we've relied upon the same core recipes and commitments to quality - even as we've expanded our menus, our service offerings and our growing network of locations.
The casual Italian dining market is a well-developed sector. But Armando's takes it to a new level of variety and value, with a focus on wholesome freshness, exceptional service and value-driven programs that keeps customers coming back and that promotes lasting loyalty to the brand. Our family of restaurants is growing through broader market penetration - fueled by an aggressive growth program - and through enhanced marketing efforts that are growing in scope and sophistication.
The result is a strong, ethical and proven business model that represents an attractive investment opportunity.
The Armando's group currently includes four corporate locations and five franchises.
