According to the global foodservice research group CHD Expert, Americans spend $46 billion a year on away-from-home pizza. On average, we eat 23 pounds of pizza every year, and 93% of Americans eat pizza at least once a month.

The demand is huge — and growing. While sales at delivery pizza franchises continue to grow slowly, fast-casual pizza franchises have emerged in recent years and exploded in popularity. To quote Franchise Chatter, “a band of startups has been racing to become what some have called ‘the Chipotle of pizza.’”

1-in-8 Americans eats pizza everyday — and many visit pizza franchises like MidiCi!

The build-your-own pizza concept has become popular because it offers a compelling deal for guests and for business owners. Guests get to order a pizza that is just for them, so there’s no need to negotiate over toppings. The pizzas are the perfect size for one person (though you may have leftovers), and half the fun is coming with a friend and swapping at least one slice to try different flavor combinations! Business owners relish the opportunity to own a fun business where it’s possible to earn more revenue per diner — four people who might split a $20 pizza at another chain will each buy a $9 pizza at MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company. MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company also has incredible desserts and a selection of specialty coffees, which add even more to the guest experience.

The startup costs for a MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company range from $612,616 to $774,948, and you should have liquid assets of $500,000 and a net worth of $1 million to get started.


The joy of our pizza franchise



The MidiCi franchise team is no stranger to competition. We are an experienced franchisor and have already risen to the top of another highly competitive food category: self-serve frozen yogurt. When we started Menchie’s, several competitors already had 50 locations or more open. We quickly outran them and turned Menchie’s into the largest self-serve frozen yogurt brand. In a crowded space, there is always room for an operationally excellent brand to disrupt the status quo.

We know how to grasp a growing and competitive segment and create a guest experience that sets a brand apart. Menchie’s isn’t really a frozen yogurt brand — at Menchie’s, we make people smile. MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company isn’t just a pizza franchise — we bring friends together.

“We chose pizza for the same reason our guests choose pizza — it’s delicious, and it’s a taste that people connect with good times and get-togethers,” says MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company CEO Amit Kleinberger. “When you walk into MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company, you are greeted by a sea of faces. Every seat is positioned so you’re not looking at the back of someone’s head — you are looking into smiling faces. When you sit at a table or at the counter, you are surrounded by friends, and you can enjoy a view of the fire in our 900-degree oven. We have created a warm gathering place for friends and families, and we look forward to introducing it throughout the United States.”

Fast-casual pizza is competitive and popular with guests, and MidiCi franchise owners benefit from the experience of a franchisor who knows how to help franchisees get off the ground quickly and take advantage of the opportunity to define fast-fine pizza in their markets.
