East of Chicago Pizza Continues Its Eastward Expansion

LIMA, Ohio - June 3, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Celebrating its 25th year in business, East of Chicago Pizza is proud to welcome four new stores to the pizza franchise's family. New locations in Solon, OH, Rochester, NY, Parkersburg, WV and Holly Hill, SC will open within 90 days.

East of Chicago Pizza Company®, a top pizza franchise with locations in seven states, continued its impressive growth by surpassing 52 consecutive months of same-store-sales increases as of April, 2015. During this period, the franchise has been able to capitalize on the increased interest of prospective franchisees in the pizza segment of the food service industry. With many operators starting with a single unit and expanding once properly funded, the brand strength, coupled with low start-up costs of approximately $125,500.00 (depending on the concept) has positioned East of Chicago Pizza Company® to pursue strategic, controlled growth with new and existing franchisees.

Tony Collins, President of East of Chicago Pizza, attributes the system-wide growth and current direction to the franchisees. "Most of our operators took the time to fill out an exhaustive system survey last year. We have analyzed the data, internalized the comments, and developed a corporate strategy, based on the results, which focuses on our core concepts. Our number one priority is to help each franchisee increase profitability."

By 2018, the brand plans to exceed $70 million in revenue and expand to 150 locations.
