A major reason for our franchisees’ success lies in how they are able to leverage both business models and drive business from one another. Mr Gatti’s franchisees who opt to utilize our DELCO business solutions typically open them in areas surrounding their Mr Gatti’s FEC location. This helps build and strengthen the connection that consumers in the area form with Mr Gatti’s, whether they originally visit our locations for our menu items or our entertainment experience.
Mr Gatti’s Pizza is ideal for regional and local communities with families. Our Mr Gatti’s Pizza family buffet model does well for its owners. These restaurants soon become community hubs, where families gather for birthday parties, school groups stop over during field trips, and teams celebrate the latest win. This classic model of Mr Gatti’s Pizza boasts a 53-year history of customer loyalty. A Mr Gatti’s Pizza franchise suggested format of +/- 12,500 square feet does well in communities with average household incomes ranging from $55,000 to $80,000.
Our brand's sweet spot site is a 12,000 to 16,000 square foot unit with an arcade or game room attached. Typically, our Mr Gatti’s Pizza locations are hitting it out of the park. Our Mr Gatti’s Pizza restaurants are a primary growth vehicle for us simply because the smaller towns have the type of potential investor who fit the financial profile we are looking for and show an interest in our cost-effective investment opportunities. We thrive in smaller markets where family-friendly entertainment is welcomed. Mr Gatti's provides the type of family environment that appeals to local school and church groups as well as community organizations such as the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
