If you are looking to start your own business, a franchise is a great way to capitalize on a proven concept. With a Georgio’s Pizza franchise we offer the chance to run your own shop while leveraging a successful, established business model.

We’ve been perfecting our unique recipes for sixteen years, acquiring along the way extensive knowledge of the industry, customers, vendors and suppliers. We take the “guessing what works” out of the equation and enable you to offer something that is not easily imitable or replicated by competitors.

Georgio's Gourmet Pizza has been in business for sixteen years. No Georgio’s location has ever failed because we have trusted our unique offer to keep us succeeding.

What type of experience do I need to run a successful Georgio’s Pizza restaurant?

Any prior experience in business management is helpful. The most important characteristics for successfully managing a Georgio’s Pizza restaurant are organizational skills, people skills, a dedication to hard work, contagious enthusiasm, and a strict adherence to the standards and specifications of the Georgio’s Pizza system.

Is there a monthly advertising and marketing fee?

Not at this time.

How much does it cost to start?

Costs will vary depending on the type of location chosen and the amount of construction that is required. If you are interested in an airport, college, free standing, or strip center, please contact us by calling 517-214-6201 or fill out a request for information at

Can I open multiple restaurants?

We are looking for entrepreneurs who are interested in owning, running and working in their own business. There are opportunities available to become a master franchisee. For more information on this, please give us a call. 

How much flexibility do franchisees have with the menu?

At Georgio’s, we pride ourselves on consistent, fresh quality pizza. We have over 50 different gourmet pizzas that have been perfected to our customer’s satisfaction. We are always open to suggestions on new types of pizza (you will get this a lot), but beyond this, we will work with you to incorporate local favorites, customizing some of the menu items to your market.
