Just One Franchise: Noble Roman’s Take-n-Bake Pizza

The average American buys pizza 43 times each year.  Noble Roman’s Take-n-Bake Pizza franchise is aiming to fill this nearly insatiable desire for pizza, but in a new way. Instead of carryout or delivery, Noble Roman’s offers pizzas which are put together ready to bake. Customers can order their pizza at their convenience, see it built before their eyes with fresh ingredients, and bake it at home so they’re serving their families fresh food.

The convenience is significant, since customers can order their pizzas and pick them up at any point during the day to be ready for cooking on their schedule. Noble Roman’s offers classic pizzas, super thin crust, and deep-dish Sicilian style pizzas, and the variety of toppings makes it easy to please everyone.

At Noble Roman’s, ingredients are fresh and assembled on site in front of the customer, not weeks or months before on an assembly line. Everything is delivered fresh to the storefront for immediate use and nothing is ever frozen.Franchisees don’t have to make the dough, so the job doesn’t require specialized skills, and the ingredients are generally prepped and ready to be put together. Since the process is similar to building a sub, employee training is minimal.

Typical store hours run 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. — just eight hours. A Noble Roman’s franchise can be started with a very small staff.

The take-n-bake model keeps costs down in other ways, too. It takes less space and equipment—and capital—to start and run a take-n-bake pizza operation because there are no ovens or proofing areas for crusts. Energy costs are lower, fire safety is not an issue, and all the issues that go with ovens, from hoods to ventilation, are eliminated. These advantages translate to a lot of flexibility for locations. Shops can be placed in areas that would not be suited to a restaurant.

Noble Roman’s started in 1972 near Indiana University, a tough market with a high level of competition and consumers who are accustomed to high quality pizza. Over the years, Noble Roman’s has developed a strong franchise model that works well in any number of markets. There are very few take-n-bake pizza stores and only one other national chain, leaving the playing field wide open for franchisees.

The minimum cash requirement is set at $100,000 and franchisees can expect to invest between $100,000 and $150,000. This is a much lower cost than other similar franchise and significantly lower than the only other national take-n-bake franchise. As a full-time franchisee, you’ll be getting your hands dirty managing and operating your storefront day to day and this franchise isn’t suitable for franchisees who don’t want to work in their own store locations. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t huge opportunities for multi-location growth with Noble Roman’s.

If you’re interested in an unconventional approach to a conventional food, you’ll want to learn more about Noble Roman’s Take-n-Bake Pizza franchises. They’re looking for franchisees who are ready to work making the best pizza on the market. Do you fit that description?
