Does the world need another pizza restaurant?
Today pizza is dominated by large chains that offer low cost products, made from frozen ingredients and mass produced. If you have ever ordered a pizza and found yourself thinking it tastes about the same as the one you cook from your freezer, then you are not alone. Frozen dough, machine pressed crust and frozen toppings have created a lot of pizza sameness, and lowered our expectations of how a good pie should taste.
But if you have ever had a good pie, with fresh dough, hand tossed and topped with a generous amount of fresh toppings then you know what it is like to eat a real pizza. In addition, our founder Bobby Vasaturo brought the original taste of Philly when he added the original Phillly Cheesesteak to Westshore Pizza. This is what led us to open the first Westshore Pizza in 1994, and has created the growth to over 40 locations and over 100 more committed. And the future opportunities are nearly endless.
Pizza is a $30+ BILLION per year industry, accounting for more that 10% of all foodservice sales and just over 8% of all restaurants’ revenue. Pizza represents a great franchise opportunity and nobody does pizza like Westshore Pizza.
Consider these facts from a recent survey:
- 94% of the population of the U.S. eats pizza
- 77% of consumers eat pizza more than once a month
- 35% consume it more than once a week
- Approximately 100 acres of pizza are consumed in the US each day, or about 350 slices per second.
That tells us that there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who eat pizza and those who make pizza. We invite you to learn more about what it would be like to be selling Westshore Pizza.
Why Westshore Pizza?
Westshore Pizza has been making pizzas and other items and opening locations since 1994. People in Tampa Bay know and love Westshore Pizza and have helped us grow to over forty locations. Now we are taking this successful model to other parts of the country. Here are a few of the keys to our success and that make this the best opportunity in the pizza business.
Lower Startup Cost
We have consistently been able to open stores for less money than our competitors. This is possible for two reasons. First, Westshore Pizza does not require an expensive décor package, but instead works with existing locations to tailor an affordable build out package. Secondly, Westshore Pizza has extensive experience in finding locations that have previously been restaurants, saving you tens of thousands of dollars in startup costs. Often times these locations will have the hoods, grease traps and build out that is required and sometimes they will even have the grilles, fryers and ovens. We will work with you to identify these locations to lessen your startup costs and speed up your opening time. Combine that with our assistance in negotiating your lease, and a stellar graphics package and you are ready to go.
You can open a Westshore Pizza for as little as $95,000 and be open for business as quickly as 60 to 90 days by following the Westshore Pizza site selection plan.
Pizza and a Whole Lot More
Westshore Pizza offers more than just pizza. That means that franchisees generate revenue from pizza and a whole lot more.
Yes it is true that we are known for our delicious hand tossed pizzas, but we have so much more. Our original Philly cheesesteaks are the real thing and our sandwiches, wings, stromboli, calzones, and pasta dinners are all made with the highest quality ingredients. Hungry for a sandwich? Try our hoagies, grinders or subs.
As a franchisee the result is more revenue from more places.
Westshore Pizza’s marketing is geared around a grass roots campaign that maximize your stores exposure while also maximizing your marketing investment. Your primary market will be the four mile area surrounding your store, so your primary focus will be telling these people about your store and giving them a reason to order. Our marketing plan will guide you every step of the way in targeting your market and will provide you with the plan to follow.
By utilizing door hangers, box top coupons, direct mail, TV commercials, email offers and food sampling you will target homes and business within your market. Once they try Westshore Pizza they will be hooked and the ongoing marketing campaign will keep them coming back for more.

Westshore is well developed in the Tampa Bay area with thirty locations but has ground floor opportunities available in other markets for single unit operators or area developers. Build your own Westshore network of stores and choose where to operate them. With many of our competitors you must work around existing franchise locations, often leaving you with the less desirable locations. With Westshore Pizza you are in on the ground floor and you can choose your territory.
