Part of the Pie: Pizza Community Comes Together To Form New Coalition

They say there's power in numbers. Now there's power in pizza.

This past spring many leading companies, franchise owners, and other pizza industry allied groups joined forces to create The American Pizza Community. This joint effort will highlight the importance of the pizza industry on American communities and promote policies that permit its continued success, officials say. Member companies include Domino's Pizza, Godfather's Pizza, Hungry Howie's, International Pizza Hut Franchise Holders Association, Little Caesars, and Papa John's Pizza, among others. Collectively, they employ over 400,000 U.S. employees in stores in all 50 states.

The new coalition of pizza companies looks to ensure that the pizza industry - from the dairy farmer to the franchisee - provides a collective voice that will help protect the integrity and value of pizza as a wholesome for American consumers.

"The pizza industry is an important engine for small-business formation and job creation," says Jeremy White, editor of Pizza Today magazine. "Starting a pizza shop - independent or franchised - is a well-traveled path for aspiring entrepreneurs." Of the 70,000 pizza restaurants in the United States, 57 percent are independently-owned and operated. Even among larger chains, 78 percent of the stores are owned by franchisees.

Pizza companies are impacted by regulations, agricultural policy, and the broader business climate, among other things. The American Pizza Community was scheduled to be in Washington, DC in June to meet with members of Congress and their staffs. The meetings were planned as the first wave of an ongoing effort to inform leaders about the industry and the economic benefits it brings to local communities.

"With the formation of the American Pizza Community, the hope is to ensure the opportunity to be a pizza entrepreneur remains both accessible and promising," says Lynn M. Liddle, chair of The American Pizza Community and executive vice president of communications, investor relations and legislative affairs for Domino's Pizza.
