HotBox Pizza was born out of a desire to save the world from pizza mediocrity. The clever and irreverent HotBox Pizza franchise delivers a fresh experience with broad market appeal. Through “in-your-face” branding, expert merchandising and great promotions, HotBox Pizza has literally created its own culture.

But HotBox does not get by on charm alone. Our delicious, top-quality pizza and breadstix are served fresh, hot, and quickly. Instead of taking the “jack of all trades and master of none” approach, HotBox Pizza focuses on making the very best pizza, offered in an amazingly wide variety of combinations. And our “Notorious Breadstix” are so outrageously tasty, that they have to be experienced rather than described!

This exceptional franchise opportunity combines the quality, personality, and friendliness of a local pizzeria with the efficiency and marketing acumen of a large chain. And according to experts, the single most critical element of a restaurant’s success is having a distinctive, well-researched concept. The highly identifiable HotBox Pizza concept is well-conceived and executed.


What states is HotBox Pizza awarding franchises in?

Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Kentucky

Do I need prior restaurant experience to be awarded a franchise?
