We're right there with you.

Count On Us

One of the biggest benefits of owning an Extreme Pita franchise is the support you’ll get right from the start. Because preparation and information are crucial to your success, we recognize the need to spend quality time with each and every franchisee. This support starts the moment you decide to fill out a franchise application form.

Franchising Support

Extreme Pita is organized into two major groups. The first, our Franchise Development group, is focused on growing the chain by recruiting qualified franchisees. Meanwhile, our Operations Team is dedicated solely to supporting and training franchisees. This structure allows Extreme Pita to concentrate equally on growing the system and building a strong group of individual and multi-unit franchise restaurants.

Real Estate and Construction

Everyone knows the importance of a good location in the retail business. Extreme Pita will analyze potential sites to ensure the best possibility of success for your restaurant.

Important aspects of site selection include traffic patterns, consumer demographics, signage availability, visibility, and more.

Extreme Pita provides a turnkey opportunity. We will help you negotiate your lease, provide customized architectural and engineering drawings, hire a General Contractor, obtain building permits, order equipment, and much more to help you get ready to open your doors.

Extreme Pita franchises are typically 1000 to 1500 square feet of space. However, smaller or larger restaurants are an option depending on the real estate available.
