The pizza shop customers love to rave about is increasing its footprint with its pizzeria franchise program.
“We are looking for people who appreciate their community and have a head for business.” That’s what Karen Wicklein, President of Antioch Pizza Shop said, when talking about the ideal candidate to open a new franchise location in the Midwest.
Antioch Pizza has been feeding those in and around Antioch, IL since 1977. Since 2015, Wicklein and associates have worked to take the regional favorite across the Midwest, deeper into Illinois, and up into Wisconsin. Antioch Pizza Shop has been made famous by their traditional pizza flavors but continues to thrive because of their modern additions and variety of offerings on their menu.
Pizza fans can dine-in, pick-up or get it delivered. Frozen pizzas are offered to those who want to fill their homes with the aroma of a pizza in the oven, and sweethearts line up in February to customize their own heart-shaped pizzas to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Most notably, Antioch Pizza Shop is known for their generosity to their community, school districts and local sports teams.
Franchise owners can benefit from the expertise, relationships and guidance that comes with an established business model backed by an experienced support team.
With corporate offices located Antioch, IL (naturally), Antioch Pizza Shop is looking to expand by opening pizzeria franchise operations throughout the Midwest region. Expansion is expected to extend beyond the initial targeted area, as demand for Antioch’s special blends of traditional pizza flavors spread from one satisfied customer to another.
