Q. Do I need to have years of experience in running a Vincenzo’s Pizza Shop?
A. Absolutely not! Each of our current licensees has attended our comprehensive training program where all matters pertaining to operating a successful business are covered. What you do need is a willingness to learn that knowledge, the desire to be successful, and the drive to apply yourself and work smart.
Q. What is covered in the training program?
A. It includes

Training in ordering, inventory control, accounting, forms, hiring, employee training, marketing, advertising, and all food preparation including
Vincenzo's famous pizzas. Prior to opening, a qualified representative visits you and assists you in the hiring and training of your staff. He or she will then remain with you through the actual opening of your store to make sure all your questions are answered.
Q. Is the dough supplied exclusively to Vincenzo’s Pizza Shops?
A. Yes, most certainly. Only our licensee's and company owned stores have the privilege to use the dough to make the award wining pizza.
Q. How much should I have to spend on advertising my business?
A. Amount will vary depending on the concentration of residential customers in your area. We do suggest that approximately 3% of your gross revenues should be spent on your local advertising. We naturally provided guidance on how and where to advertise and, very importantly, where not to advertise.
Q. Is there a standard operating procedure that I follow?
A. Generally, yes. Our marketing, merchandising and selling procedures have been developed, tested, and proven effective. Our systems are designed to provide you with an efficient, smooth running store, geared for maximum profitability, however you can taylor your operation to accommodate for changes in your customer base.
Q. Do I receive an exclusive territory?
A. Absolutely! Our policy is never to dilute the sales of any store by locating a second store in the same marketing area. We provide you with an exclusive geographical territory that is determined by a market-by-market basis based upon a variety of factors including population, economic conditions, and traffic.
Q. What size best suits a Vincenzo’s Pizza restaurant and who selects it?
A. Anywhere from 1,200 to 3,000 square feet, depending if you want a takeout & delivery type restaurant or a full dine in sit down restaurant.

If you want, we will help you to select the best location possible in the area you want. Once you have selected what you believe to be one or more locations, we will send an experienced member of our staff to your city to verify your findings and affirm your selection.
Q. How much is the one time Licensing Fee?
A. Call for info.
Q. What is the term of my Vincenzo’s license?
A. Each Vincenzo's License will be granted for a period of 5 years.
Q. Can I renew my license after the term expires? If so, what is the renewal fee and what are the conditions of the renewal?
A. We will be delighted to renew your license, providing you sign the current license agreement that is being offered to new licensees. We do charge a small fee to cover the cost of the paper work involved in renewing your license.
Q. How long does it take to get into business once the license and contract agreements have been signed?
A. Many variables determine the time frame, two of which are the availability of the best location and the amount of remodeling time that is necessary to conform to restaurant standards. However, based on previous experience, your store could open within 90 to 120 days after execution of the lease.
Q. Can I acquire a Vincenzo’s Pizza Shop and be an absentee owner?
A. Although we prefer our licensee's to actively operate the store, it is possible to own one of our pizza shops on an absentee basis providing you have a qualified manager on the premises. But remember, no one looks after your money better than you do, it would be wise to take at least a semi-active role in the business.
Q. Why is a Vincenzo’s licensee’s so successful?
A. One word ... DOUGH ... We have what we know is the best pizza crust, and the best pizza on the market. We have also proven that our system, procedures, and advertising work... and work well, and they have for years. What we find we have is a shortage of people, ..good, quality people. If we could find an abundance of good people, we would open Vincenzo's stores from coast to coast and own them ourselves. This is why we have chosen to license, one very simple reason, people. We can't find enough of them, so this then presents our exceptional concept to you. If you represent the quality type of people that we are seeking ... then this may be anextraordinary opportunity for both of us.
Q. Does Vincenzo’s Original Finance any part of the cost of owning and building a Store?
A. No, Vincenzo's Original does not finance any part of the cost of owning a store, but our experts in the finance department will help you to find the balance of funds needed to own a store. Also, a lease program is available for some of the equipment. When there is the need and the will there is a way.
Q. Can I visit one of Vincenzo’s Pizza stores?
A. For Sure! You are always welcome to visit one of our stores and also taste our award winning pizza. Just call to make an appointment and one of our representatives will be more than happy to meet you at any of our locations. He or she will give you a tour of the restaurant. If you choose to go on your own, naturally a tour will not be possible and also please do not ask the employees any questions about our program, as they are there to serve the customers, not potential new licensees.
Q. What kind of investment do I need to make in order to own a Vincenzo’s Pizza Shop?
A. Because all locations are different it is impossible to give you an exact amount. But we have divided it up into categories and we are showing you an approximate cost for each one under " Capital Requirements".

If you have any other questions that need answers, call anytime. We will be happy to answer them over the phone or we can arrange a meeting with you at your convenience. It is important to us that all your questions and concerns be answered and addressed. We want you to be fully informed about our program and goals before making your decision.

 

We then hope you will make the decision to join us.

 

Thank you,
