How Our Pizza and Entertainment Franchise Unlocks Nostalgia

October 15, 2023

For any new business breaking into the pizza industry, establishing a loyal customer base can make or break long-term success. Those operating under a traditional small business model can find this difficult to accomplish, particularly when competing with a pizza and entertainment franchise. Most small pizza businesses start with little to no name recognition or brand awareness, making their ability to attract new customers and differentiate from other more enticing options in the market quite challenging in terms of growth potential.

On the other hand, entrepreneurs who franchise with a well-known brand can avoid the pitfalls that most small businesses face. Famous pizza brands like Mr. Gatti’s Pizza have shown a significant, long-term connection with our guests, many of whom reflect on earlier visits to Mr Gatti's, conjuring up fond memories of great times, enjoying delicious food, and indulging in fun. This often inspires them to bring along family and friends from their community to relive their nostalgic Mr Gatti's experiences.

We may have started as a humble pizza shop, but Mr Gatti’s Pizza has spent decades as one of the industry’s most engaging family entertainment centers (FECs). Our history extends back over six decades and continues to fuel the connection we maintain with our passionate fans to this day. Whether our guests visit to enjoy our delicious food, interactive arcade games, or private party rooms, their loyalty and fondness for our brand have helped Mr Gatti’s franchises maintain our popularity.

Our Famous Pizza Is a Hit with Customers

Since the beginning, our pizza brand has been loyal to our true-to-recipe approach to create great pizza, using fresh ingredients to pack an authentic and flavorful taste into each delectable bite our customers take. From the savory cheese we select to the mouth-watering sauce and handmade dough prepared daily to the craveable toppings we offer, Mr Gatti’s pizzas are made  from the right recipe for success.

As a matter of fact, the nostalgic demand for our pizza is so great that it has allowed our franchisees to pursue delivery and carryout-only (DELCO) locations. Our DELCO stores focus exclusively on our excellent pizza and sides for customers searching for an enjoyable meal that can satisfy their hunger. Our DELCO franchises provide the perfect solution for those customers who don't have the time to entertain the full Mr Gatti's Pizza and FEC experience, yet still crave our menu options. Mr Gatti’s franchisees who elect to build DELCOs can strategically position them around their FEC location(s) to win additional business they may have missed out on otherwise.

Nostalgia Marketing Makes a Difference

Brands that utilize nostalgia in marketing can recapture the positive feelings that consumers have felt in the past and motivate them to revisit an experience. With our decorated history, Mr Gatti’s Pizza has become a popular destination for local residents and out-of-town visitors. Our pizza and entertainment franchise out-delivers across the board on engagement, accessibility, and affordability when compared to other popular outings that can't come close, such as:

  • Sporting events
  • Concerts
  • Formal restaurant dining
  • Movie theaters
  • Casinos

Visitors to Mr Gatti’s appreciate the opportunity to explore the various facets of our facility while satisfying their appetite. Our buffet-style service allows guests to select the pizza slices of their choice, along with the accompanying sides and sauces they prefer, and still take advantage of all the fun our game room has to offer.

Our Games Delight Everyone

Another way our Mr Gatti’s franchises spark nostalgia amongst customers is through our game selections. While certain other FECs primarily cater to young children, we build out our game rooms with titles that appeal to nearly every demographic. We work together with each franchisee to choose games that are popular with members of their community.

Mr Gatti’s arcade rooms typically offer a balance of classic titles and popular new releases that keep guests entertained for hours on end. Every purposefully chosen game for our FEC facilities is also age-appropriate, so group-wide, all involved can be comfortable playing amongst each other. Current arcade room fans who remember playing specific games during their younger years at Mr Gatti's can recapture that feeling again.

Nostalgia is a powerful tool that Mr Gatti’s Pizza restaurant franchise embraces to serve our guests' interests and ultimately build on our loyal customer base. By leveraging this strategy, we help our franchisees boost their performance and popularity in their communities. It’s what sets us apart from many other pizza and FEC options – something to consider when searching for the best pizza franchises to invest in.
