While the pizza industry brings plenty of demand, relying on pizza alone may not be the best way for a business to truly thrive. Combining it with another aspect that can attract revenue, such as a family fun center, can take the business to another level. However, a fun center that fails to stand out in its own right will not fulfill the significant potential for businesses looking to add an additional revenue stream. Even the most driven of small business owners can find it difficult to properly introduce multiple facets, such as the pizza and fun center combo, into one venture on their own. That is why many have instead chosen to franchise with Mr Gatti’s Pizza known for our delicious food menu and family entertainment center (FEC) aspects.
Mr Gatti’s Pizza boasts a rich tradition that spans several decades in communities throughout the country. During this time, we’ve built a strong affinity with our customers, thanks to the memories they have made eating, playing, and connecting at our FEC locations. While our pizza is undeniably popular, we know that it’s our FECs that have the ability to serve as a community hub that truly separates Mr Gatti’s from the rest of the industry. With our backing as their franchisor, entrepreneurs can build a business venture that becomes a staple of the communities they enter while realizing the full potential that an FEC and pizza franchise has.
At our Mr Gatti’s Pizza FEC, our customers can expect the full pizza, games, and party experience we’ve been offering at our franchise locations for years. Pizza is more than just part of our name – it’s at the core of our entire brand. We make this very evident to our customers even with all the fun activities typically happening at each Mr Gatti’s franchise.
Our FECs contain enough space for us to serve delicious pizza to customers in a buffet style. This allows them to select their preferred pizza and other menu items and take their food with them as they explore and enjoy the rest of the facility. With such popular food being a key part of our franchisees’ operations, it’s important that we serve it in a way that complements the rest of our family fun center.
Arcade rooms are a staple of just about any fun center, and the team at Mr Gatti’s Pizza aims to take our game rooms to the next level. Every Mr Gatti’s FEC is developed with enough room to fit a game room that can become a key attraction for nearby community members. Many of our franchisees report that the game rooms in their locations are significant revenue drivers for them – in addition to being a key differentiator from other pizza shops.
When choosing arcade games to add to each FEC, we aim to balance the nostalgic classics that many customers grew up on and loved with new, eye-catching games that can capture their interest. We also ensure that each game is family-friendly and age-appropriate so that every Mr Gatti’s FEC guest will feel comfortable playing it or letting their children enjoy it.
The party rooms we include in each of our FECs prove to be another factor that leads customers to choose Mr Gatti’s Pizza for their social gatherings. These rooms are large enough to host sizable groups without taking up too much real estate from the rest of the guests at the location. This includes space for private party dining – still in the same buffet-style format that resonates with our loyal customers. We also make it easy for customers to secure a party room for their gathering, thanks to our convenient booking platform.
While other fun centers cater almost exclusively to small children, Mr Gatti’s party rooms are known to host gatherings for all types of community events. Some common examples include:
Mr Gatti’s Pizza takes full advantage of our unique family fun center franchise model to give an additional boost to our franchisees. It’s a key part of what makes us different, not just to the customers who have been visiting their nearest Mr Gatti’s FEC location for years, but to entrepreneurs looking for their next business venture. We are confident that our franchisees can make the most of the potential that exists in the pizza and FEC markets while standing out from the rest with both.
