Texas Growth Opportunites

Exciting Franchise Opportunity in Texas

Mr Gatti's Pizza got its start in texas

Mr Gatti’s Pizza is no stranger to the great state of Texas, in fact this is where it all began.   The very first Mr Gatti’s Pizza opened up in the summer of 1969 in the small town of Stephenville, TX.  

We haven’t really changed a thing and still use our original recipes to make our tangy pizza sauce, smoked provolone cheeses, and incredibly farm fresh ingredients.

Despite our heavy presence in the Austin, TX market, the state has literally thousands of small towns that are just begging for a Mr Gatti’s Pizza to come provide them with some great pizza and a fun, and family friendly destination.

Mr Gatti's Multi-Unit Opportunities

Most of our 40 franchises are multi-unit operators, with the average franchisee owning a total of approximately 3 restaurants. Our franchisees have a deep passion for our brand and strong operational expertise in our system. That’s because an astounding number of them originally started with Mr. Gatti’s Pizza working in the kitchen, serving customers, and managing operations. Many of them have owned their stores for generations, and we’re now seeing second-and third-generation franchisees become operators themselves. Since many of them grew up together in and around Mr. Gatti’s Pizza, they care deeply about our brand and about each other. And that loyalty and trust is perhaps our greatest competitive advantage. In fact, with close to 100 locations operating across the country, 25% the 49 franchises awarded in 2020 and 2021 went to existing franchisees who are wanting to grow! A unique fact about Mr. Gatti’s is that 21 of our franchisees started with us before 1999! Our longest-tenured franchisee has been with Mr. Gatti’s Pizza since 1980 and the average length of time our franchisees has been with us is approximately 20 years! We think this speaks to the family-style culture we’ve cultivated at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza and the strength of the brand and its operating system.
