Happy's Pizza Franchise for Sale

Happy’s Pizza is in the fast casual restaurant business and we never forget it! Even though our menu is extensive, every item is prepared within 10-15 minutes. Speed makes our customers happy, which makes for a quick return on investment.

Happy’s Pizza was established when Co-CEO, Happy Asker, noticed the lack of solid dining options on Detroit’s North East side. The first store, which opened in 1996, offered diners an extensive menu featuring ribs, chicken, hand battered shrimp, pasta, salads and subs, as well as the namesake, Happy’s Pizza. Due to its popularity, Happy’s Pizza quickly became a household name in Michigan and it didn’t stop there. Happy’s Pizza currently has almost 90 stores open in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada and California, and 20 stores under construction in these and other states. Each new store is a work of art and includes Happy’s iconic build-out with granite counter tops, neon lights, ceramic tiling and Venetian plaster.

In addition to its growth focus and exceptional support and training, Happy’s Pizza is proud to participate in the community and is involved in many different philanthropic activities. These include an annual “Coats for Kids” and bicycle program, as well as working hand in hand with community health departments to offer pizza parties for school-based vaccination initiatives.

Named in Restaurant magazine’s Top 50 Franchises, Happy’s Pizza is on the rise and continues to proudly be “Delivering more than just great pizza."

Why Happy's?

The Happy’s advantage

The food is amazing and the prices are unbeatable! Our pizza is second to none, but our incredibly diverse menu featuring smoked ribs, barbecued chicken and seafood sets us apart.

Pizza industry growth

Restaurant franchising is a $60 billion a year industry and pizza accounts for one half of all Quick Service restaurant sales. Add to that ribs, chicken and seafood and we’ve got something for everyone in the family any day of the week.

Training and support

University of Happy's Pizza©

While each of our stores undergoes Happy’s classic build-out, operators gain admission to The University of Happy’s Pizza. After 40 hours of training in our corporate kitchen and 60-90 days of in-store management training at an open location, graduates are completely groomed for success. Once a store is open, our support staff helps you with marketing, inventory control, staffing, prep and food updates.

At Happy’s Pizza we are proud to provide our franchisees with premier support, including site selection, lease negotiation assistance, equipment, fixture, signage and inventory suppliers, and even construction standards and assistance. In addition to this, once a new store begins operations, Happy’s Pizza provides the franchisee with an operations manual, continuous updates of our specifications and processes, and operational advice and assistance by telephone and Internet.

Promoting Happy's

We are one of the only restaurants with a toll-free vanity number and we know how to use it! Our in-house ad agency customizes individual marketing plans for every store. It starts with 'coming soon' banners, job fairs and a big grand opening push. Once operations are running smoothly, we turn up the marketing machine with TV, radio, direct mail, mobile and online promotions connected to our growing social web presence.

Real estate selection

Happy’s Pizza may assist in real estate selection, and final selection must be approved by our office. Our size and reputation give new owners instant leverage in real estate negotiation and financing. When we’re not smoking ribs, we’re smoking out new locations. Our team of savvy store scouts analyze all the element for success such as population density, traffic flow and demographics.
