Fox’s Pizza Den is a chain of restaurants serving pizza and other food items such as hoagies, salads, Stromboli, breadsticks, cinnamon sticks, chicken tenders and wedge fries. It offers regular and gourmet pizzas with options such as buffalo chicken, bacon double cheeseburger, taco, veggie and Hawaiian. Fox’s says that its dough is hand-tossed, its Italian Pecorino Romano cheese comes from central Italy and that the cheese on all its pizzas is 100 percent real.
Customers can order online, call in orders, dine in a Fox restaurant on site or opt for delivery to their home or place of work.
Fox’s Pizza Den may appeal greatly to potential franchise owners who dislike the idea of a corporation taking a percentage of their restaurant’s gross sales each month. Instead, Fox’s charges a flat $300 royalty rate a month. As the Fox’s website explains, “At Fox’s the more business you do, the more money you make.”
Fox’s touts low startup costs as one of the great benefits of opening a franchise. While this is true with a mere $10,000 initial franchise fee, franchise owners must also pay an additional $11,000 not long after that for training and site consulting. The low end of the total investment range starts at $111,550, and the upper end is $210,050, according to the franchise disclosure document. Fox’s also comes with the common benefits of owning a franchise such as brand recognition, training manuals, product inventory and system buying power.
There is no doubt that pizza restaurants are a deeply established market. Independent operators, especially those new to the restaurant business, may find it difficult to break in. Going with a Fox’s franchise can prove a tremendous head start.
An ideal candidate to own a Fox’s Pizza Den would be enthusiastic about all things pizza and a go-getter able to capitalize as much as possible on the $300 monthly payment structure. To that end, previous experience running a restaurant may be helpful, although Fox’s provides extensive training and support.
