WHAT QUALIFICATIONS SHOULD I POSSESS TO BE CONSIDERED A CANDIDATE FOR A LICENSE WITH TOPPER'S PIZZA?

All Topper's Pizza franchises thrive on the personal attention of the Franchise Partner. Topper's Pizza is looking for highly motivated people to join our team. We are committed to making our system the best. You must possess the following qualities:

  • Belief in our award-winning pizza and CARE for our Customers’ Satisfaction –
    no exceptions.
  • Communicate well and enjoy working with people.
  • Have sufficient funds and credit standing to open and operate the Topper's Pizza franchise. You should have about 40% of the start-up cost in cash or liquid assets.
    The balance may be obtained by bank financing.

These are some of the factors we review in selecting our Franchise Partners. Restaurant experience is not necessary. An appropriate personality, character and motivation are all critical in the restaurant business. Please analyze your own skills and attributes in detail, just as we must, before the decision is made to work toward establishing a new Topper's Pizza.
