Get the training and support you need to position yourself for growth
Joining the Pizzeria Uno franchise means that you’re getting the training and support that comes from an established pizza powerhouse with more than 40 years’ of franchising experience. Keep reading to find out what we offer in our Pizzeria Uno franchise support and training.
From pre-launch training to the marketing support you’ll receive, the Pizzeria Uno team has you covered. Our crew of seasoned professionals is as invested in helping you succeed as they are in their love of our great pizza!
Here’s what you can expect when you become the next Pizzeria Uno franchise owner.
Comprehensive training helps you serve pizzas the Uno’s way
After signing your franchise agreement and paying your franchise fee, you’ll start what we like to call “Pizza University”. Through online training, correspondence, and in-person experiences, you’ll learn the ins and outs of franchise ownership.
During this period of the training, you’ll learn how our franchise system is structured, and how to navigate the accounting tools, ordering systems, and techniques you’ll use to manage your business. While you’re working through these programs, our team is also helping you to start construction of your Pizzeria Uno location.
Once you begin construction, you’ll send your managers to a Pizzeria Uno location for operational training. For the next 6 to 10 weeks, your team will work alongside our management and training staff. They’ll get the hands-on experience they’ll need when you open the doors. This competency-based program helps them master the processes and prepares them for the job they’ll eventually do, managing your location.
One week before your grand opening, our management training team arrives in your community. They’ll help you and your managers train your staff. Plus, you’ll undergo a week of operational training.
Competency-based training is only as good as the assessment and support you receive after you’ve completed the program. One month after your location opens, you’ll get a visit from the franchising team to help refine your processes, streamline service, and improve overall performance. We’ll even come back when you need us too.
“We view this as a partnership,” explains Vice President of Franchising Fred Houston. “If you win, we win. We want you to be successful, and that means giving you all the tools and support you need to make that happen.”
The result of this partnership approach is a well-trained team prepared to do exactly what your community wants: to make great pizza!
Get marketing support you can only find with an established, popular, and iconic brand
We know how to sell our iconic original pizzas. After all, we’ve been doing it for more than 75 years!
“There aren’t many pizza franchises that can brag their first location is still open,” says President and CEO Erik Frederick. “That kind of longevity requires a great product, but it also requires great marketing and branding.”
For the ultimate in pizza branding, look no further than Pizzeria Uno’s Director of Marketing, Chris Dellamarggio. While our brand may be one of the most beloved pizza brands around, it’s Chris’s job to ensure it stays that way.
“As a marketer, it’s amazing to work for such an iconic and beloved brand. The brand and product recognition is high, which is a huge plus. We constantly work to come up with fun, exciting, and traffic-driving campaigns to stay top-of-mind with consumers. We always want to be part of the consumer’s consideration process when they are making the decision on where to eat, especially when they want to have the best food around in a great atmosphere.”
That means advertising, and advertising everywhere, as Chris explains. Our comprehensive marketing plan is omni-channel. It spans all forms and mediums: TV, radio, digital, traditional mail, and OOH such as billboards.
Chris not only helps spread the word from a national and regional perspective, he also helps franchise owners understand the best ways to reach people in their markets.
“That’s where we’re going to help supply them with physical materials, online digital materials, and things they can use in their local market plan to do a grand opening, then do sustained marketing,” Chris says. “After that, at a corporate level, we’re always going to be promoting the brand across the board, whether it’s company locations or franchise locations. We are open to a collaborative environment with franchisees to maximize all market plans.”
