About the Franchise

At Roman’s Pizza we strive to provide the best quality meals at the best value for money. As founders of the 2 pizzas for 1 low price we have set an industry benchmark in terms of value for money. We offer the consumer a choice of either pan base (thick base), or traditional base (thin base) pizza.

Pizza is our major line at the moment and constitutes up to 80% of our total sales at some stores. We have a combination of restaurants/take-aways as well as take-aways only, in the group. Our current focus is on setting up take-aways only, as they are far easier to manage from a franchisee point of view, and control from a franchisor point of view.
