Testimonials

It is a tremendous advantage to the Franchise Partner that Donatos supplies the restaurant with pizza crusts that are ready to go. It saves you time, there’s less labor costs and fewer inconsistencies.

Mike Simon
Multi-unit Franchise Partner

I started at Donatos when I was 15 years old. Now I give young kids those same opportunities when I hire them. Over the years, they come back to the restaurant and they’re all grown up and have families. And they thank me.
