Round Table Pizza Looks to Asia for Expansion

BEIJING  (Profitable.comRound Table Pizza, a California Pizza restaurant icon known for quality and innovation, will be evaluating cities and prospective partners in China during the next two weeks. The leading west coast pizza brand has received multiple inquiries for master licenses to bring its premium products to China and the rest of Asia and is beginning to set up meetings with these prospective partners.

“International demand is growing as entrepreneurs recognize the value in the Round Table Pizza brand,” notes Round Table Pizza President Rob McCourt. “Although currently there are other American pizza concepts operating in China, consumers there are now asking for higher quality products that the typical chains can’t provide.”

Founded in California’s San Francisco Bay Area, Round Table Pizza has prospered as the market share leader in one of the most competitive markets in the United States. Last year, Round Table celebrated 50 years of success in bringing families together to share a wonderful meal. Of the company’s 500 restaurants, 75% are owned and operated by franchisees. Round Table is uniquely structured to provide its partners with the tools and flexibility necessary to launch successful, international restaurants.
