Franchise Details

Reasons To Join Our Royal Family >>
  • The King Pie system is one of the easiest and cleanest in the QSR industry as no production or assembly takes place in the outlet.
  • The product arrives frozen and is then baked in the store on demand. Thus immediate, clean, simple and simply irresistible.
  • The products sold by King Pie franchisees are manufactured at one centralized, state of the art facility.
  • The products are distributed nationally (and internationally) by way of a dedicated distributor.
  • All our products are baked from frozen, therefore ensuring excellent quality and freshness.
  • Our professional team matches the potential franchisee, (which will have to undergo the necessary assessments in order to be considered as a franchisee) to a site. Once the outlet is open (which is a turn-key operation) our franchisee can immediately serve the best products available in our industry.
  • Well established King Pie Training Academy. New franchisees undergo intensive training before opening the new franchise. This includes a 3-day theoretical course at King Pie’s support office and a 2-day practical course in a regional training center.

  • Excellent return on investment.
  • An ever extending product range for all income groups and appetites.
