Fresh ingredients generously portioned lead to our pizzas having "Flavors That Sing!" Consumers love the food and you'll love the system. Celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2011
Pizza is America's favorite ethnic food. In fact, 93% of all Americans eat pizza on a regular basis, resulting in a growing industry of over $36 billion.
For 30 years, the key to Figaro's Pizza franchise success has been our unique positioning in the marketplace, attention to detail and the quality of our product. We know who to target in each market and have created effective consumer-level sales and marketing strategies that generate sales. Our business is based on repeat customers who are loyal and love our products.
All of our locations offer customers "Take and Bake" and either pick up or delivery. Our research has enabled us to develop a crust that will hold its consistency and quality until the time the customer puts their Figaro's Pizza into their own oven. A number of our locations offer inside dining and party rooms. We also cater parties, events and have developed effective promotions geared for holidays and various special events.
Figaro's began in 1981 as the dream of two entrepreneurs, Corkey Gorley & Al DeBacker in Salem, Oregon, who wanted to meet the needs of busy families. In an era when both parents often work outside the home and there's a universal demand for speed, quality, value and convenience, Figaro's popularity has increased year after year as a partner in mealtime preparation.
In June of 2001, Figaro's was purchased by a group led by Ron Berger, a franchise veteran of 35 years. Ron put into place a plan for Figaro's long term growth. It began internally by creating an infrastructure to support the new stores and franchisees. Now, with state of the art store design, all-new brand positioning and a delicious, unique pizza product, Figaro's is poised for rapid expansion.

In fact, your family and friends will all want to participate with you in the expansion of the business because it is so much fun and the potential is clearly visible.
