Chicago, IL. June 2019 – When people hear “Chicago”, the first word that pops into their head is usually deep dish pizza. Pat’s Pizza is shifting the public perspective on what Chicago pizza should be with their coveted thin crust pizza recipe. Originally established in 1950 by Nick Pianetto Sr, Pat’s Pizza has been a family owned Italian pizzeria and ristorante committed to serving the community of Chicago for over 65 years. Their specialty is lies in preparing meals originating from Northern Italy. A traditional Italian menu encompasses pizza, pasta, lasagna, chicken, pork, beef, sandwiches, and salads. Pat’s Pizza strives to provide an authentic Italian dining experience that pangs with the culture of Chicago.


Unlike the majority of pizza joints in Chicago, the pizza here is renowned for its thin crust. We bake our pizzas in a brick oven until the crust is nicely browned, as if it were caramelized on the edge, providing the perfect crunch with every bite. We don’t sell slices like typical pizza joints. Because we are a classic Chicago-style tavern, our pizza is cut into squares (a.k.a., party cut). Customers can choose from 11 signature recipes that have been refined throughout the years to ensure consistent quality. If nothing piques their interest, they are welcomed to customize their own pies with a variety of crusts, toppings that include gluten-free options to maintain an all-inclusive customer base.


Franchising your own Pat’s Pizza entails an initial investment expense from $272,000 to $515,000, depending on the location. These costs cover a one-time franchise fee, preliminary inventory, property leases, permits, a wine/beer license, and additional business necessities.


Pat’s Pizza franchisees are obligated to complete a comprehensive training program that consists of 24 classroom hours in our Chicago headquarters, and 96 on-site hours. It may seem extensive, but completing the program will ensure that franchisees will be vetted on providing five-star customer service, preparing high-quality meals, bookkeeping, managing, and how to advertise your business. In addition to our thorough training, we provide franchisees with a personal consultant to help see through the development phase, grand opening, and continued success of your Pat’s Pizza branch.
