QSR’s Most Craveworthy Pizza


About Us

Toppers Pizza is 30 years old!  We started franchising just over 20 years ago when we knew we had something quite special AND people asked how they could open their own Toppers Pizza unit! There, we tirelessly perfected our model. We grew. Added a few more locations. Before long, we were in Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio, Nebraska, the Carolinas,  Kansas, Virginia and Texas. From there, we continued to perfect our model, and got to where we are now: Ready to take this thing to the next level. Why should you care about all this? Here's why:

Known for being QSRs most craveworthy pizza! Not to toot our own horn, but our Topperstix and Pizza are delicious! We wouldn't be where we are without them.

Products and Services

So, what makes us so successful? Well, it starts with our product. Like any good franchise concept, the product has to be great for it to work. We make our dough in-house, daily. We have a wide variety of unique, signature House Pizzas. And we have a big-time differentiator with our Topperstix ®, an item people go nuts over. We're proud of our product and once you try it, you'll understand why.

Of course, we realize there are plenty of places out there claiming to have good tasting pizza. So what makes us stand out from the rest? Our marketing. All our efforts are directed at a specific niche. We talk with them, not at them. We engage them. We become one of them. But all this is just the tip of the iceberg. There's so much behind our success.



Why Choose Toppers?

Because we're special. The secret is that, as true pizza people, we've found people just like us; people who love all things pizza. It's in the air, and we can smell it. They're 18-34 and love our decadent flavor profiles and the party we bring from the moment they hear "Hello! Thanks for calling Toppers Pizza", to the glorious moment we deliver what they so desperately crave. We've seen Toppers tattoos and have delivered Topperstix to weddings. Our 18 unique House Pizzas, plus Topperstix, plus one of a kind marketing has built Toppers Nation (and shuts out the competition). We are one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Chain Restaurants in the U.S., according to Chain Store Age magazine. Join us in taking over the world.



Ideal Candidate

Toppers Pizza is a craveworthy and innovative pizza delivery concept. Now, as the world reopens, being a purveyor of a preferred pizza is a perfect position to be in because pizza is the ideal food for both gatherings and online ordering. With Toppers, franchisees can capitalize on both a well-positioned concept and an innovative business model. Toppers was one of the few brands that was opening stores during the pandemic. That's right, while many neighborhood restaurants were forced to close their doors for good, Toppers continued crushing it. That's why the Toppers team is looking for qualified entrepreneurs in key growth markets across the country. People who are eager to utilize the brand's well-positioned systems to achieve their dream of business ownership or who are looking to diversify their portfolio with a pizza concept.

Our most successful operators have High energy and are excellent communicators and managers. Obviously, applicants who have managed people in the restaurant industry in general, or the pizza delivery business in particular are especially well prepared for the work required. Retail managers or those who have retail business experience also have very useful experience. While such experience is helpful, it certainly is not a requirement.

Most people in the restaurant business today came from totally unrelated fields of work, and never had any intention of getting into restaurants. Once in, they found that it is consuming and rewarding work that can provide a lifetime of challenges and opportunities (they also love the free food). Our extensive management training program and the ongoing guidance from your franchise representative more than prepares you to manage and operate your store.

If you are considering owning a pizza place, you might as well own the best! We would love to tell you more about our Toppers Pizza franchise—contact us to learn about our brand and the next steps to Toppers Pizza ownership.
