Pizza Factory announced today that it has begun a search for a new location and franchise owner in Bothell. The family-friendly pizza restaurant has 113 locations in six states and hopes to open the new Bothell location within the next year.

“The role we play in the communities we serve goes well beyond just being the best place in the neighborhood for pizza. And, from the beginning of their journey with us, our franchisees are drawn to the brand because of the sincere connections we have with our fans,” said Pizza Factory CEO Mary Jane Riva. “We are growing our footprint into neighborhoods big and small where we know our awesome people, product and philanthropic partnerships will be valued and Bothell has exactly what we are looking for.”

With a strategic plan in place, Pizza Factory will grow into Bothell and is now accepting franchisee inquiries. The company states that a Pizza Factory franchise will be a welcomed addition to Bothell because it has such a strong sense of community with a great balance of residential and business buildings.

Company officials state that they offer a high-level of support to its franchisees.

“We also have a strong commitment to helping our franchisees reach their performance and growth goals,” added Riva. “The majority of our franchisees work in their restaurants and live in the communities they serve. They care deeply about their customers, their business and making a difference. We assist in every way possible to ensure our franchisees’ restaurants radiate the welcoming neighborhood feel we all have come to know and love.”

The brand’s slogan “We Toss’Em, They’re Awesome!” is a reference to its hand-tossed pizzas, as well as the fresh, handmade pastas, sandwiches, and salads featured on the menu. The company said Pizza Factory uses only fresh, hand-grated 100 percent mozzarella cheese, slow cooked meat sauce and meatballs that are hand rolled in-house.

In support of the towns Pizza Factory calls home, it launched the well-known “No Bully Zone” program that raises awareness about the prevalence of bullying in schools and throughout the community. Through community partnerships, Pizza Factory fights to put an end to harsh bullying wherever and whenever it occurs.

In addition, company officials said Pizza Factory also offers fundraising programs to support local schools, youth sports leagues, as well as other community groups and organizations.
